Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Minister of the Union Environment Harsh Vardhan said, that even though “green crackers” which is considered less polluting have been devised and soon will be shared with the Industry, it won’t be available this Diwali.

Technology for these low emission level fireworks was developed by the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and was sent to the Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organization (PESO) for safety checks and granting licenses to the manufacturers.

New technology, according to Harsh Vardhan, will have 20 to 30 per cent less particle pollutants. He added that while manufacturing techniques will remain the same for the factories, the cost of manufacturing in case of green fireworks will come down by 15 to 30 per cent.
