Gujarat Launches Trading System with incentive for Low Polluting Industries
The government of Gujarat has launched a market-based trading system to reduce air pollution. Under the programme, the government sets a cap on emissions and allows industries to buy and sell permits to stay below the cap.
About the Project
- Gujarat s initiative is the world s first emissions trading system for particulate pollution.
- The pilot project has been initiated in the city of Surat a densely populated industrial centre where textile and dye mills release a significant amount of air pollution.
- The programme will be experimentally tested at Surat to understand its impacts on emissions, industry costs and regulatory costs
- The initiative aims to reduce pollution through a market-based approach.
The initiative will use the Gujarat Pollution Control Board s earlier innovation of using continuous emissions monitoring systems to track industry emissions in real time.
