Black Carbon and India's Efforts



What is black carbon?

Black carbon is a pollutant produced by incomplete combustion of fuels, contributing to climate change and health issues.

Main source of black carbon in India?

The residential sector, due to traditional biomass burning, is the largest source, accounting for 47% of emissions.

Impact of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY)?

PMUY reduced traditional fuel use by providing over 10 crore LPG connections, aiming for cleaner cooking options.

Why do PMUY beneficiaries still use biomass?

Affordability and access to LPG refills remain challenges, leading some beneficiaries to continue using biomass.

Government's plans for clean fuel access?

Enhancing LPG subsidies and exploring local cleaner fuel production like coal-bed methane to improve access and affordability. Efforts to reduce black carbon are vital for public health and climate goals.
