  • Stubble is husk or stems that are burnt
  • They can cause pollution and ozone depletion
  • Delhi government used bio-decomposer to prevent burning and improve sustainability

Stubble is husk or the stems/grains that are left over after the cutting down of the crops, simple it can be called as a by-product of production. Stubble burning is a technique that was used from the 90s, the process has its advantages but it also comes with a lot of disadvantages such as Pollution, the release of harmful gases, Ozone depletion, and due to this, it was observed that stubble burning has to be prevented in order to ensure a cleaner and greener environment. The harsh consequences have led some of the countries to make the burning restrictive while others have permitted its use in certain exceptional cases. Our Capital City Delhi is not affected less by this pollutant, as far as millions of tons of stubble are burnt down to create a cloud of toxic gases which has been condemned for a long time. The Delhi Government was also fined subsequently as a result of a failure in taking action. A revolution followed after this when Delhi Government announced that they would use Bio-decomposer to combat this problem and create new dynamism by preventing crop waste burning. The decomposer is made by Pusa Research Institute, the preparation and the process was properly examined before the same was announced by the Government. The use of these bio-Decomposers has started on October 11, 2020, this method is affordable as well as cheap since they had to only spend 20 lakhs on 700 hectares. The measure is quite worthy as it tends to reduce pollution and is cost-effective. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the product will be distributed to farmers without any price, the Pusa decomposer is made of capsules and it will dissolve the stubble-this makes the land more fertile for cultivation while preventing burning. The amazing technology converts the waste to fertilizer helping in farming. Later the year Pusa proved to be very successful in this remarkable conversion, it was successfully used in Hiraki Village on rice fields and it tends to convert the waste to manure in about 15 to 20 days. The CM of the state has pointed that no state can now put forth any excuses as an effective alternative has been found and we have also put forth the same before the Supreme Court. While 40 percent of the pollution in the Capital City is completely based on Stubble Burning, this solution was very necessary. The Union Environment Minister has also agreed to use the Pusa Decomposer across different states after it the trial was successful in New Delhi. This Bio-decomposer marks as a very important step towards environmental protection and promotion of a pollution-free atmosphere.
