Impact of Brick Kiln Emissions on Atmospheric Quality in Chohatta Bazar, Akola District

Harne PV | Mangle VS

Abstract: Brick production is a widespread traditional industry across various parts of Asia, and in India, the brick sector, albeit unorganized, holds a significant presence. This study focuses on brickfields in the Akola district's Chohatta Bazar, where over 400 active stack - less brick kilns operate, leading to substantial air pollution during the winter season from October to May. The research aims to monitor the emissions from brick kilns, specifically gaseous pollutants such as PM2.5, PM10, SOX, and NOX, during both operational and non - operational phases. The results revealed that the concentration of PM2.5 and PM10 exceeded the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) during brick kiln operation. However, the levels of SOX and NOX remained within permissible limits. To mitigate air pollution in the study area, the implementation of chimneys and other possible measures to reduce pollution are recommended.
