More than half of India's coal-fired power plants set to miss emission norm deadline
More than half of India's coal-fired power plants ordered to retrofit equipment to curb air pollution are set to miss the deadline, private industry estimates and a Reuters analysis show, as millions in the country wake up to toxic air each day. Thermal power companies, which produce three-quarters of the country's electricity, account for some 80% of India's industrial emissions of sulfur- and nitrous-oxides in India, which cause lung diseases, acid rain and smog.
