Integrated Air Quality Management at City Level:

PUNE CITY

Srinivas Bonala


City Profile

  • Population as 2001 census -2.697 Millions

  • Density (persons/ sq km)-10,657

  • No of Households- 623,056

  • Average Household size- 4.42

  • Length of road network- 1000 kms

  • Vehicles regd in PMA (2003)-1.354 Millions (PMC- 1.057 millions & PCMC - 0.297 Millions)

  • Avg. new veh. registrations/day- 400 (app.. 100,000 new per annum)

  • No of PMT buses - 847


City Manifests Problems Such As……

  • increased traffic congestion,

  • reduced driving speed,

  • increased environmental pollution and

  • degradation of quality of life

  • Capacity of many intersections has been exhaustedThe central city is experiencing capacity gaps, parking problems, low-speed travel, increased congestion, environmental pollution leading to worsening air quality.


  • First Corporation to Prepare ESR ( 1995 -96) in India

    9th Report Covers Issues Pertaining to……

    • Air quality, land use, health, noise, housing, sanitation, greenery, slums, traffic&transport etc.,

    • It outlines PMC’s priorities for current year

    • Priorities are based on facts & figures, sometimes experiences

    • No emphasis on domestic, agricultural, construction and industrial pollution

    • Inadequate health impact data


    Air Quality Action Plan-2002

    • Court directives to prepare action plan to improve air quality with respect to vehicular pollution (May 2002)

    • Prepared action plan in consultation with RTO and MPCB

    • First attempt was made to estimate vehicular, industrial & domestic pollution

    • Road map on emission norms, fuel quality, steps to curb pollution from vehicles in use and control on registration of certain kind vehicles


    Hindrances Faced….

    • Lack of validated and appropriate data

    • Ad hoc approach to air quality management plan and strategies

    • Multitude of agencies. Lack of effective coordination and communication.


    The Pune Approach……

    Marching towards science based AQM model

    • Brainstorming workshop on of air quality management held on Sept. 12-13, 2001 in Delhi attended by rep from MoEF, CPCB, State PCBs, academic institutions and USEPA.

    • Pune selected as demo city for undertaking Urban Air Pollution Control Strategy Development by MoEF & USEPA.

    • USAEP is strategic partner to USEPA in implementing this project and work started in Pune in December 2002

    • PMC with facilitation from USAEP made Pune member of CAI-Asia in FY 2003

    • A core-group has been formed consisting of various stakeholders

      Core group has prepared a draft “Air Quality Management Programme

      (AQMP)” with the following building blocks:


    Process for Improving Air Quality


    New Urban Air Quality Management Initiative

    • Start-to-finish control strategy development project in one city in India

      • 2-3 years duration

      • EPA provides training/assistance

      • Project tasks completed by groups in India

    • Focus on particulate matter (PM-10)

    • Science-based Action Plan to be developed

      Funding and Facilitative support from USEPA and USAEP/USAID to develop and implement the project in Pune


    New Urban Air Quality Management Initiative

    • Strong training component – training transfer

      • ambient air monitoring (source apportionment and permanent networks)

      • emission inventories (point, area, mobile – IVEM)

      • dispersion modeling

      • control strategy evaluation and selection

      • health impacts assessment

    • Training and field activity


    Activities Completed

    International Vehicle Emission Model (IVEM)

    MOBILE SOURCE INVENTORY

    • Assisted by University of California – Riverside team

    • IVEM model was based on vehicle technology distribution, driving pattern, time and number of vehicle engine starts for Highway, arterial and residential areas.

    • IVEM Field Study held in Pune, March 2003

      • UCR provided training and assistance

      • Data gathered by Indian groups (Pune Municipal Corporation, ARAI, Univ. of Pune, SIAM, and others)

      • Final report issued June 2003

        Developed most comprehensive mobile source emissions inventory in India to date


    Block Estimates From The IVEM model


    Comparison Daily Emission Estimates by CIRT & IVEM (tonnes/day)


    Activities Completed

    2 Key Activities – Source Apportionment and

    Ambient Air Monitoring

    • Ambient Monitoring

    AQM Cell and Its responsibilities

    • Develop roadmap for implementation of action plan with assigned responsibilities for the stakeholders.

    • Get the same approved by the stakeholders

    • Coordinate, facilitate and implement the action plan

    • Organize monthly review meetings to brief the stakeholders on the work undertaken and take guidance from them

    • Undertake awareness campaigns and technical training programs on air quality management.


    SUSTAINABILITY OF THE CELL

    • The cell can generate revenues through organizing various technical training programs

    • But the primary objective of the cell is to develop, facilitate and implement the roadmap to achieve better air quality in Pune, hence

      The Pune Municipal Corporation committed to develop a self sustainable AQM cell in next 5 years.

      US-AEP’s funding support for AQM cell for a year
