India becoming world’s top sulphur dioxide emitter: study

India's emissions of the air pollutant sulphur dioxide increased by 50 percent since 2007, while China fell by 75 percent, claims a study which found that India is yet to implement emission controls like its neighbour.
The study led by researchers at the University of Maryland in the US suggests that India is becoming, if it is not already, the worlds top sulphur dioxide emitter.
