On the Green Map:

Air Pollution

Pollution from industries and geothermal plants, aluminum smelters (emission zones) and emissions from the ferrosilicon factory. That is fluoride and sulphur polluted areas.

Geothermal Energy Plant

Geothermal energy plants utilize the heat flow and warm steam of high temperature geothermal systems. Geothermal energy production is perceived by many as sustainable but so far challenges in respect to sulphur pollution and CO2 have not been solved.
