Tyre Burning in India

Every month, the UK exports “thousands of tonnes” of used tyres to India. It suggests that most of these tyres are used by pyrolysis plants to produce fuel. Several of these plants flout regulations on pollutants released in the process.

In 2014, the National Green Tribunal banned the burning of used tyres in the open or using them as fuel in brick kilns, because they produce toxic smoke known to be hazardous to health.

Why are we still accepting exports of used tyres from UK and not stopping tyre burning all together? more

Please receive a SHOCKER from me. Carbon remaining as residue or recovered from deposited on walls of the kilns has got a NOVEL use. The same is used for blackening of coal!
Blackening of coal? Yes, blackening of coal. Inferior materials like stone, clates, etc. whether mined or unmined is blackened with such carbons.
Gullible workers. collects and do the blackening operations manually and carries the potential risk of cancer,TB and various other health hazards. User of such coal, biggest being Thermal power stations, complain for low calorific value of coal., increased damage to boiler tubes due to increased abrasion of boiler tubes, higher transportation charges, etc., and,hence, has to increase the cost of electricity.
And we commoners! are at the receiving end for paying higher unit rate for electricity, and hence higher electricity bills.
Grand-grand old proverb BLACK WILL TAKE NO OTHER HUE.
In India, blacks will cover all other hues. Please recognise this channel as one of the avenues to generate black money. more  
Any activity not acceptable for environment protection shall be penalised and punishable if repeated more  
I agree that India should ban burning of used tyres more  
If Plastic can be treated to make a fuel, can we imagine tyre treated to fuel ? more  
The Govt./NGT should wake up and ban burning all rubber/plastic
waste as fuel or during agitations. . In every city, the Civic Bodies workers burn the plastic waste for quick disposal without knowing its ill effects on human bodies/animals. The focus should be on recycling such
wastes. The indirect support by the politicians and corrupt NGT/PCBs
officials is acting as a major bottleneck in minimizing air/water
pollution There is need to fix the accountability of the concerned
officials in every State. The non performing and corrupt ones be
removed regularly. more
