Control and Prevent Industrial Emissions

Control and Prevent Industrial Emissions

Industrial Emissions pose a great threat to our environment. The Industrial Installations account for a considerable share of total emissions of key atmospheric pollutants. They also have various environmental impacts including emissions to water and soil, generation of waste and use of energy. How do we control and prevent the Industrial Emissions?

Greenhouse Gases and Emissions

Greenhouse Gases are that absorb and emit radiant energy within the Thermal Infrared range. This causes the Greenhouse effect. The main Greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere are Water Vapour, Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide and Ozone. These Greenhouse Gases trap heat and make our planet warmer. It is estimated that about 23% of the Greenhouse Gas emissions are contributed by the Industries in U.S.

The largest source of Greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in the U.S is from burning fossil fuels for Electricity, Heat and Transportation. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the Industrial sector accounts for about 37% of all energy used worldwide. This also has a large share of global Carbon Dioxide emissions.

Control and Prevention

The Industries can play a significant role in the transition to a lower-carbon world that protects our health and environment. It involves many steps and can take time as well as require mature and emerging technologies. We can switch to the Renewable Energy and work hard towards Recycling and efficient use of materials.
