Talking to this company, Environmental specialist of Ministry of Climate Change Muhammad Saleem said that Indian farmers had been burning their crop residue after harvesting Kharif season crops, which ends into massive smoke outburst, hence used to be the primary explanation why of smog in Pakistan. “Pakistan’s own contribution to smog phenomenon is quite minimal as India owing to its massive size is number four global polluter of the world in terms of carbon emissions. India is also jeopardizing regional environment with its trans-boundary pollution adding to the prevailing climate change impact,” he added.

To a question, he stated Pakistan regardless of its negligible contribution to world environmental air pollution has taken firm steps to make the country smog resilient. The ministry has effectively carried out Zigzag technology in brick kilns of the rustic and also ensured their closure inside the prescribed period of time of iciness season.

“The ministry was also in contact with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to take up the issue for a dialogue with India on their uninhibited contribution in smog as it was a social and economic issue not only for Pakistan, rather for her nation as well,” he added. He knowledgeable that the Ministry of Climate Change has amicably addressed the placement and known key elements of smog technology within the country other than standard resources particularly brick kilns. “As many as 20,000 brick kilns are working across the country,” he added.

Most of the brick kiln homeowners are the use of plastic bags, previous sneakers and hackneyed leather items to fireplace the furnace for preparing bricks which creates far more than darkish smoke emissions and causes large amount of fuel consumption, he mentioned. He stated the ministry had a hit dialogue with the brick kiln owners who have been sensitized about their contribution to the serious environmental issue.

“The brick kiln owners were shocked to realize the fact and convinced by the ministry to convert their brick producing units into zigzag brick kiln technology,” Saleem informed. He told the exchange zigzag brick kiln era have been introduced to convert firing kilns while the conversion procedure is step by step proceeding across the nation. “The zigzag firing kiln was a continuous, cross draught, moving fire kiln in which the air flows in a zigzag path due to the draught provided by a chimney,” he defined.
