New Delhi: The centre has exempted 36 non-polluting industries, termed white industries, such as solar and wind power plants, from green clearance.

“The new category of white industries, which is practically non-polluting, will not require environmental clearance (EC) and consent. This is a landmark decision to give a fair picture of the industries,” environment minister Prakash Javadekar said after releasing the new categorization of industries on Saturday based on their pollution load.
