CIL expects output from the South Eastern Coalfields

Despite the underperformance of the public-sector undertaking's subsidiary, the coal ministry and Coal India (CIL) are counting on South Eastern Coalfields (SECL) to meet the output target for 2022-23 (FY23). CIL, which accounts for more than 80 per cent of domestic output, has set a 700 million tonnes (MT) target for FY23.

In FY22, SECL's output fell short of the annual plan by more than 5 per cent. Last year, the company set a target of 150 MT. It could, however, extract 142.5 MT. The Bilaspur-based firm fell to second place in production among CIL's eight entities. Mahanadi Coalfields, based in Odisha, took the top spot.

This fiscal year, SECL has set a target of 182 MT. The coal ministry and CIL are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities. OP measures the ability of PM2.5 to generate reactive oxygen species, which can cause ..
