WAYS TO REDUCE POLLUTION By: Shaheenaz Rafa Khalidha Eynas Pollution Is the modification of the environment by human activities Some major pollutants are CO CH4 SO2 Oxides of Nitrogen CFC Types Of Pollution Water pollution Air pollution Noise pollution Land pollution Radio active pollution Pollution causes Many harmful effects to Environment & living things So, it is very important for us to find out what are the things we can do to reduce or minimize pollution Solutions for Pollution There are no particular solutions for Pollution. But, pollution can be controlled by proper choice of preventive and remedial measures Water Pollution – waste water treatment To reduce Pollution Drive less Walk Ride a bike Use public transport (eg:bus) To reduce Pollution Buy air friendly products (with no aerosols) Save energy Turn-off lights when not in use Use fan instead of AC To reduce Pollution Lead compounds are the most toxic heavy metals Use unleaded petrol To reduce Pollution Flue-gas desulfurization Fitting flue-gas desulfurizer to power stations and factory chimneys removes (SO2) sulfur dioxide given off Sulfur dioxide is one of the elements forming acid rain This will help to reduce acid rain. Flue gas desulfuriser To reduce Pollution Catalytic converter Fitting catalytic converter in car engines. catalytic converter converts CO, NO2, & hydrocarbon formed in car fumes to less harmful gases such as CO2, H2O & N2 Catalytic converter To reduce Pollution Replace CFC with ozone friendly products To reduce Pollution Calcium carbonate can be used to reduce the effect of acid rain It can be added to lakes and surrounding land to decrease acidity Helicopter spreading lime over a lake Pollution Prevention Hierarchy Prevention & Reduction Recycling & Reuse Treatment Disposal “It is better to prevent waste than to treat or clean up waste after it is formed” Thank you Any Question???
