Power industry requests for relaxation from MoEFCC on fly-ash disposal norms

The Association of Power Producers (APP) has placed request with the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) for relaxation of fly-ash disposal norms due to declining demand of fly-ash.

APP has requested the MoEFCC to not impose penalties on the thermal power plants in the 2020-22 period if they are unable to utilise 100 per cent of the fly-ash produced from power generation, as the demand for fly-ash from cement plants, brick manufacturing units and road construction agencies had decreased since March 2020 due to the lockdowns and curfews.
