New Delhi: Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Thursday said Delhi's first smog tower at Connaught Place will be ready by August 15.
The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the construction work of the smog tower, the first-of-its-kind in India, at Baba Kharak Singh Marg.
The ones in China suck the polluted air from the bottom and release the clear air from the top, whereas this smog tower works in the opposite direction, he said.
The smog tower at Connaught Place will be able to purify 1,000 cubic metres of air per second, the minister said.
He also said many experts have different views about the efficacy of smog tower.
