PDF File Size: 26 KB | Download   
The industries in the Bhairahawa-Lumbini road, the area along the highway
between Bhairahawa and Lumbini in Nepal’s Rupandehi District, have a major
impact on water, soil, air, flora and fauna, health and heritage of Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha, says a study conducted by the International Union for
Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Nepal, on behalf of UNESCO. The study thus,
recommends banning carbon emitting industries such as cement, steel and brick
producing factories. The study reveals that out of 57 factories in the region, 15 major industries, including 11 cement factories, two steel factories, one paper processing factory and one noodle producer, can be considered as hazardous for the environment in terms of their production processes and pollutant emissions.
