Ministry to make green norms more stringent 17.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Environment and Forest Ministry will make green norms more stringent for the industry and strengthen regulations for diesel vehicles in an effort to arrest rising level of pollution. "Last week, we have made environment norms more stringent for the cement industry. I want to do it in all industries in future. There have to be rules that make the environment norms more stringent. We will go ahead with the rules and ensure 100 per cent compliance," Environment and Forest Minister Prakash Javadekar said at a summit organised by confederation of Indian Industries (CII) here, on Tuesday. Union minister, however, said the government would be "practical" in its approach and it will consult industry as well as other stakeholders before finalising the rules. "We contaminate everything", he said, noting that 80 per cent of the sewage treatment plants set up in various industrial units was "non-functional". The Union minister said cooperation of the industry was critical for monitoring, evaluation and ...

BIAL opposes reopening of Mavallipura landfill 17.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Fearing that birds would hit aircraft, with disastrous consequences, if the Mavallipura landfill near Yelahanka was reopened, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) has written a strong letter to the state government not to consider any such move. The BBMP reportedly approached Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) recently to make this landfill operational again before December 1, when the Mandur site is set for closure. In July 2012, the KSPCB had ordered closure of this landfill in the wake of vociferous protests by local residents angered by groundwater contamination. Reopening it would magnify the spectre of dangerous bird-hits at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). The proposed move, as BIAL Airport Operations president Hari Marar put it, would be of even more concern for the Yelahanka Air Force Station. Mavallipura is just 18 km from KIA. The IAF base is even closer. But KIA has no immediate concerns regarding bird hits, thanks to its inbuilt waste-handling mechanism. An ...

From London to Brisbane to Buenos Aires, architecture enthusiasts all over the globe get set to nose around in the worlds greatest buildings for free The gilded opulence of a Buenos Aires ballroom, the hidden tunnels beneath Jerusalems Wailing Wall, and the cavernous innards of the biggest gasometers in Europe are some of the off-limits sites that can be glimpsed around the world this autumn, thanks to the growing phenomenon of the Open House weekend.

The combined programme now includes thousands of buildings and locations, from the lavish halls of embassies and parliaments, to the industrial heft of cement factories and sewage treatment plants, as well as micro-flats and self-build housing schemes, with the number of ...
