No city in in kerala can be considered. though air quality is good, no muncipalty have waste water treatment facilty except Trivandrum. The ppeople are hygienic. but the political parties shuld show the courage to implement solid, liquid ,e waste and the abotiors should be made compulsory. everybody is simply dumping waste to Others backyard or public place.Improper sewage ,septage management leads to incresd ground and surface water contamination.
the question is ,which polical front will show the courage to implement sewage treatment plants in cities or other sustainable measures to reduce pollution.
the govt shuld take initiativve to clear the bottlenecks in implementing such projects which is necessary for protecting health of public.
Nice article. At present, most of the automobile companies are considering HFO-1234yf as a low-GWP alternative for mobile air-conditioning promoted by DuPont and Honeywell. There is another lobby group promoting R744 (CO2). HFO-1234yf is considered cost-effective as compared to R-744. A detailed LCA analysis will be useful to make a choice. However, what about other sectors responsible for 75-80 percent HFC emissions globally? Phase-out of HCFC’s in developing countries should promote other low GWP refrigerants such as CO2 (in aerosol/foam and R&AC sector), R-290 (in R&AC sector) and other natural refrigerants (e.g. ammonia in industrial refrigeration) instead of HFC’s.
Dear Ms. Sunita Narain:
Thank you for your article; however I am really surprised by the question posed by you at the end of the article.
“The question is: profit or planet?” - Wrong question.
Profit and planet?? That should be the question.
Profit, planet, and people have to go together. That is what green economy, green business, and green productivity are all about. As far back as in 1992, a declaration on environment and development was made in the Earth Summit. Environment and Development have to go TOGETHER.
