Ambient air quality and indexing with reference to suspended particulate matter and gaseous pollutants around a cement plant in OCL India Limited, Rajgangpur, Odisha, India
Cement industry is a potential anthropogenic source of air pollution. Emissions from cement plants are one of the major sources of global warming. The dusts produced were very hazardous, which affect the surrounding environment. The present study was undertaken to analyse the air quality around a cement plant (OCL India Ltd, Odisha) within 2 km radius for a period of 8 months stating from October 2016 to May 2017 at four different locations with meteorological parameters.
