Emissions from brick kilns depend on several factors including kiln technology type, input fuel used, brick setting practices to name a few. This report provides an assessment of stack emission monitoring for a few brick kilns in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. The objective of the report is to understand particulate matter readings observed in different kiln types and the factors which influence variations in the readings. Through this report, we can understand the different impacts that using brick kilns and the zigzag kilns have on the environment.
