Exposure to air pollution can lead to
respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

VEHICULAR EMISSION

The single biggest cause of pollution in cities. It is worsened by fuel adulteration and poor fuel combustion efficiencies from traffic congestion and poor quality road network.

FUELWOOD + BIOMASS BURNING

An inefficient source of energy, it produces high levels of carbon monoxide and other air pollutants. It is the primary reason for the near-permanent haze, smoke, and particulate pollution in rural & urban India.

FUEL ADULTERATION

Many auto rickshaws and taxis use adulterated fuel to save on costs. These emit unsafe pollutants which further deteriorate the quality of air.
