Most of the plywood units of Yamunanagar district are causing air and water pollution as they lack adequate pollution control devices.

Sources said plywood units were generating emission from boilers as well as thermotaps as they were being run without adequate air pollution control devices. Besides, they were also generating domestic and trade effluent.

“Cattle are used by the units for manufacturing glue, which is used as pasting or adhesive material to manufacture boards in plywood units. Glue is produced using urea fertiliser. After the production of glue, the cattle is washed using water, which is reportedly drained outside the factories in the open, causing pollution and also causes groundwater contamination in several cases,” said a source.
