Construction dust, Debris, pollution.
This paper addresses a major environmental problem associated with construction sites and the best mitigation strategies for minimizing or reducing the effects on the environment. Since construction dust emissions are one of the main causes of air pollution, improving the quality of the air on and around construction sites demands methodical, practical approaches that work. •The National Green Tribunal (NGT), CAQM, regulatory bodies, and other enforcement agencies have taken varied degrees of severe action against project proponents/industries in the past few years for violating dust standards during building and demolition operations as well as for openly disposing of concrete waste. In order to comply with required and contractual provisions, contractors and subcontractors are frequently instructed and enforced to adopt environmental protection measures on sites. • Adopting a multiple-option approach is necessary to minimize dust and air pollution on construction sites, given that various construction operations comprise a diverse range of activities. This paper aims to provide additional light on the most cost effective, real-world methods for minimizing the negative effects of dust in the field of sustainable mechanism. • Although, there are some general approaches to dust control but more efficient and cost effective pragmatic approaches for improving air quality in and around the construction sites depends on – (1) Identification of significant dust emission sources on every site, (2) Prioritizing such sources that needs to be tackled more prudently, (3) Weighing various practical and cost effective options for controlling the dust emissions from different sources, and (4) Sincerely implementing and managing such appropriate actions. • There is no doubt that construction dust control has now become new challenges for the construction activities in any large-sized infrastructure developmental project. The need of the hour is to intensify sincere efforts towards control of dust & air pollution and enhanced compliance level for control of dust pollution without affecting its progress.
