Shale gas Shale gas extraction Unconventional natural resources found at 2500 - 5000 m below the earth's surface Shale oil and gas requires deep vertical drilling followed by horizontal drilling Water table Gas Flows out Water, sand & chemicals . ShaleFissure Water, sand and chemicals into well Hydraulic Fracturing/ Fracking: is Gas f the most common way to extract gas Shale Hydraulic fracturing -Fissures . High volumes of water mixed with certain Chemicals are pushed down to break the rocks and release the trapped energy minerals
Prospective basins for phase 1 shale oil and gas exploration Fracking consumes large amount of water and relatively large surface area . Assam-Arakan Basin Assam & Arunachal Pradesh . It is bound to impact irrigation and Ganga Basin Uttar Pradesh other local requirements High risk of pollution to nearby underground water Damodar Valley in Gondwana Basin Cambay Basin Gujarat Krishna Godavari Basin Andhra Pradesh Cauvery Basin Tamil Nadn
Nagpur first city to have EV charging station Under electricity act 2003, charging batteries as a service will not require licensing .
SAFAR( System of Air quality and weather Forecasting And Research) Aim: SAFAR envisages a research based management system where strategies of air pollution mitigation go hand in hand with nation's economic development to target a win win scenario Introduced by Union Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) for greater metropolitan cities of India to provide location specific information on air quality in near real time Developed by Indian Institute of Tropical Metrology, Pune along with Indian Metrological Department and National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF)
The main objective of this project is to increase awareness among general public regarding the equality The awareness for the general public will serve a purpose to take appropriate mitigation measures and systematic action for betterment of air quality and related health issues Currently IITM, Pune serves as aapex forecaster of pollution trends in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad Generates air quality profile for a day in advance, for these cities . .
It monitors pollutants like: 1. PM1 2. PM2.5 3. PM10 4. NOx ( NO, NO2) 5. CO 6. Ozone 7. SO 8. Methane 9. Non metha ne hydrocarbons 10. Benzene 11. Mercury
New System to measure air quality * India tying up with US and France to develop a pollution forecast system . It will anticipate PM levels at least two days in advance and at a greater resolution than what is possible
