Poor quality fuel, coal-based plants seen as key causes of air pollution in city

KARACHI: The long absence of a mass transit system in Karachi and use of poor quality fuel are major factors behind the city’s highly degraded air. What has added to the environmental disaster is the government decision to allow operation of a number of coal-based projects with little checks.

These points were raised by experts at a seminar on pollution-free transport organised by the National Forum for Environment and Health, a non-governmental organisation, at a hotel here on Wednesday.
