The Kerala State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) on July 09, 2019, has categorized the industries into Red/Orange/Green and White based on pollution potential which is not included in categorization list.

The list of newly included industries or units is as under:

SL. No.

Item Categorized

Category

162

163

Perfume making (mixing only)

164

Inter lock making unit using concrete waste and broken bricks

Green

165

Dredging without using machine provided there are no sensitive locations such as water intake points in the downstream

Green

166

Green

However, several complaints have been received from units to include Gate and Grill (involving Grinding, cutting, hammering but no painting work) in GREEN category instead of WHITE category.

Therefore, ‘Gate and Grill (involving Grinding, cutting, hammering but no painting work)’ is re-categorized as ‘GREEN’ with effect from July 09, 2019. The already consented Gate and Grill units will remain in HITE category, provided they are operational with stringent pollution control measures.
