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 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.

Global Warming

Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. The most significant greenhouse gas is actually water vapor, not something produced directly by humankind in significant amounts.

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.

Ozone or trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula. It is a pale blue gas with a distinctively pungent smell. It is an allotrope of oxygen that is much less stable than the diatomic allotrope breaking down in the lower atmosphere to normal dioxygen. Ozone is formed from dioxygen by the action of ultraviolet light and also atmospheric electrical discharges, and is present in low concentrations throughout the Earth's atmosphere(stratosphere). In total, ozone makes up only 0.6 ppm of the atmosphere.

Soil Pollution

Soil pollution is when humans introduce harmful objects, chemicals or substances, directly or indirectly into the soil in a way that causes harm to other living things or destroys soil or water ecosystems. Soil pollutants include a large variety of contaminants or chemicals (organic and inorganic), which could be both naturally-occurring in soil and man-made. In both cases, the main soil pollution causes are the human activities.

Radioactivity refers to the particles which are emitted from nuclei as a result of nuclear instability. Because the nucleus experiences the intense conflict between the two strongest forces in nature, it should not be surprising that there are many nuclear isotopes which are unstable and emit some kind of radiation.

Pollution Toxicology

Pollution 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.

Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is essentially an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants. Oxidative stress is likely to be involved in age-related development of cancer. The reactive species produced in oxidative stress can cause direct damage to the DNA and are therefore mutagenic.

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.

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.

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 Effects

One of the greatest problems that the world is facing today is that of environmental pollution. Environmental Effects 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.

Public Health

Public health refers to "the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals." It is concerned with threats to health based on population health analysis.
