Industrial Pollution

Industrial pollution is the pollution which can be directly linked with industry. This form of pollution is one of the leading causes of pollution worldwide. There are a number of forms of industrial pollution. Industrial pollution can also impact air quality, and it can enter the soil, causing widespread environmental problems.

Pollution

Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the environment that causes harmful and toxic effects to living things. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollution is often classified as point source or non point source pollution.

Air Pollution

Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful gases into Earth's atmosphere, causing disease, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as food crops, or the natural or built environment. Air pollution may come from anthropogenic or natural sources. 

Water Pollution

Water Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the water body that disturbs aquatic environment. Water pollution affects the entire biosphere plants and organisms living in these bodies of water. Water pollution is a major global problem which requires ongoing evaluation and revision of water resource policy at all levels.

China Pollution

As china is most populous and industrialised, It faces severe environmental concerns specifically soil and air pollution. As China's waste production increases, insufficient efforts to develop capable recycling systems have been attributed to a lack of environmental awareness.

Amphibians

Amphibians are ectothermic, tetrapod vertebrates of the class amphibia. They inhabit a wide variety of habitats with most species living within terrestrial,fossorial, arboreal or fresh water aquatic systems. These are cold blooded vertebrates. Amphibians use their skin as a secondary respiratory surface. 

Methane

Methane is a green house gas it damages our climate when it's released during natural gas production and distribution. Methane is colorless, odourless gas and simplest alkane having chemical formula CH4. It is also known as marsh gas or methyl hydride. It is easily ignited and vapors are lighter than air.

Pollution Management

Pollution Management seems grabing high attention because of pollution severity around the world. World Bank on eighteen April 2015 established Pollution Management and Environmental Health (PHEM) program.

Pollution Damage

Pollution Damage is the term prevails in oil industries.It is the accidental discharge of oil from the ship into the water body. Air pollution can damage trees, crops, other plants, lakes, and animals. In addition to damaging the natural environment, air pollution also damages buildings, monuments, and statues.

Environmental Damage

Intense instances of water contamination, land tainting and harm to biodiversity are classed as environmental damage. Very serious cases of water pollution, land contamination and damage to biodiversity are classed as environmental damage, and dealt with through the Environmental Liability Regulations.

Pollution Toxicology

Environmental toxicology, otherwise called entox, is a multidisciplinary field of science concerned with the investigation of the destructive impacts of different substance, organic and physical specialists on living life forms. Pesticides are a major source of environmental toxicity. These chemically synthesized agents have been known to persist in the environment long after their administration.

Light Pollution

Light pollution also known as photo pollution or luminous pollution is excessive, misdirected, or obtrusive artificial light. Pollution is the adding-of light itself, in analogy to added sound, carbon dioxide, etc. It includes adverse effects of artificial light sky glow, gare, light clutter,decreased visibility at night, and energy waste.

Noise Pollution

Noise pollution or noise disturbance is the excessive noise that may harm the activity or balance of human or animal life. The source of most outdoor noise worldwide is mainly caused by machines and transportation systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, and trains. Noise pollution affects both health and behavior.

Pollution Facts

Pollution is one of the biggest killers, affecting more than 100 million worldwide. More than 1 billion people worldwide don’t have access to safe drinking water.5000 people die every day as a result of drinking unclean water.The garbage dumped in the ocean every year is roughly around 14 billion pounds. Plastic is the major constituent.Pollution kills more than 1 million seabirds and 100 million mammals every year.

Point Source Pollution

A point source of pollution is a single identifiable source of air, water, thermal, noise or light pollution. A point source has negligible extent, distinguishing it from other pollution source geometries. The sources are called point sources because in mathematical modeling, they can be approximated as a mathematical point to simplify analysis. 

Ocean Pollution

Ocean pollution occurs when harmful, or potentially harmful, effects result from the entry into the ocean of chemicals, particles, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive organisms. Most sources of marine pollution are land based. The pollution often comes from nonpoint sources such as agricultural runoff, wind-blown debris and dust. 

Nonpoint Source Pollution

Nonpoint source pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground. As the runoff moves, it picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters and ground waters.

Air Pollution Facts

Inhaling air pollution takes away at least 1-2 years of a typical human life. It has effects as small as burning eyes and itchy throat to as large as breathing problems and death. Pollutants that are released into the air, as opposed to land and water pollutants, are the most harmful. In 1952, the Great Smog of London killed 8000 people.Deaths caused by air pollution cost the European Union €161 billion.

Most Polluted Cities in the World

According to the report by World Health Organization 2010, some 223,000 people around the world died from lung cancer caused by exposure to air pollution. And more than half of those deaths are believed to have been in China and elsewhere in East Asia. WHO released a list of world’s most polluted cities.1.Linfen, China 2. Tianying, China 3. Sukinda, India 4. Vapi, India 5. La Oroya, Peru. 

Thermal Pollution

Thermal pollution is the degradation of water quality by any process that changes ambient water temperature. Cause of thermal pollution is the use of water as a coolant by power plants and industrial manufacturers.When water is used as a coolant is returned to the natural environment at a higher temperature, the change in temperature decreases oxygen supply and affects ecosystem composition. 

Land Pollution

Land pollution is a result of dumping garbage, waste, and other toxins making the land contaminated or polluted. The source of land pollution comes from the human element such as littering, and waste that is washed ashore from boats, oil rigs, and sewage outlets.

Pollutants

A pollutant is a substance or energy introduced into the environment that has undesired effects, or adversely affects the usefulness of a resource. Pollutants can be artificial substances, such as pesticides and PCBs, or naturally occurring substances, such as oil or carbon dioxide, that occur in harmful concentrations in a given environment.

Environmental Pollution

One of the greatest problems that the world is facing today is that of environmental pollution. Environmental pollution consists of five basic types of pollution air, water, soil, noise and light. Environmental pollution is the contamination of the physical and biological components of the earth to such an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected.

Plastic Pollution

Plastic pollution involves the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, or humans. Plastics as pollutants are categorized into micro, meso or macrodebris based on size. Plastic pollution can unfavorably affect lands, waterways, oceans, living organisms and marine animals can also be affected through direct ingestion of plastic waste. 

Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air pollution is a concern in the developed countries, where energy efficiency improvements sometimes make houses relatively airtight, reducing ventilation and raising pollutant levels. Sources of indoor air pollution are pesticides, household wastes, gases such as radon and carbon monoxide.
