These heavy metals are not biodegradable, i.e. they cannot be reduced to simpler form and therefore pose great threat to human health and ecosystem.  Heavy metals such as cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel and zinc are declared the most hazardous and toxic metals, and they are listed in the EPA list of priority pollutants. The increased concerns on the environment and health and the strengthened regulations demand more strict treatment of water and waste
Every manufacturing industry has its own unique operations as well as its challenges. The textile Industry has been one of the largest contributor to the water pollution in the world. Voluminous amount of water and chemicals go into the transformation process from greige goods to printed materials. Although other pollutants to the environment are also a concern, such as the solid waste and the air pollutants, water remains the largest and the most troubling. The new wave of Eco-Textile producers have coined the textile industry as the world’s worst offender in terms of pollution.
It was the industrial revolution that gave birth to environmental pollution as we know it today. London also recorded one of the earlier extreme cases of water quality problems with the Great Stink on the Thames of 1858, which led to construction of the London sewerage system soon afterward. Pollution issues escalated as population growth far exceeded view ability of neighborhoods to handle their waste problem. Reformers began to demand sewer systems, and clean water.  In 1870, the sanitary conditions in Berlin were among the worst in Europe.
Water scarcity is lack of sufficient, clean, and safe water in a given region. This is very common as it affects every continent around the world and almost 2.8 billion people. Water scarcity often occurs and is a dominant isuue in the world since it threatens human health and economy. One of the main causes of water Scarcity is water pollution. Water pollution is the contamination of water due to unhealthy human activities.
With an upcoming development and world’s global climate change are causing many degradation of water and its sources. Water resources and its reservoirs are greatly being affected by anthropogenic action or natural phenomenon. When talking about water pollution, we should consider that it is not only about water quality but also about water quantity. Water pollution in Japan had been issue even before the industrialization, especially during “Japan’s Meji Period (1868-1912)”, when “Ashio Copper Mine” dumped huge amount of waste water into Watarase River and greatly hamper the residents (Water Environmental Management in Japan, n.a). It seems that with industrialization and urbanization, the water problem become more severe in Japan.
It is infinite to talk about damages that industrialization has caused to Mother Nature such as pollution, extinction, etc. That’s why we will analyze 3 biggest bad effects of it: Pollution, over-exploitation of natural resources, and finally over-use of land. Reasons Pollution When people think about negative impacts of industry on nature, the first thing in our mind is absolutely pollution. The story about the close relationship between industry and pollution began in the beginning of 19th century with the appearance of the “Industrial Revolution”. In that period, machines, factories, technology gradually and completely replaced basic tools.
Abstract Environmental pollution is arising from the mining industry in the Western World and from the developing nations is a serious issue in current days. Cross-cultural perception studies are needed to understand similarities and differences, if any, in human response to environmental problems between developed and developing countries. Increasing environmental problems in the mining zones of India is one of the burning issues from last two decades. The Damodar Valley coalfields mainly in Raniganj, share a relatively serious environmental problems. The Damodar Valley coalfields located in the Indian states of Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal contain most of the productive coalmines in India.
Industrial effluent is very much unstable and it fluctuates repeatedly in an ample assortment depending upon the course practiced. Most of the south Asian countries have rigorous environmental trouble due to hasty industrialization development. This observable fact is very widespread where the polluting industries like paper, pulp, textile, dyeing, leather, tanning processing, sugar manufacturing flourish as clusters. Together with these, the textile industries are huge industrial patrons of waters as well as producers of wastewater. The effluent discharged by this industry headed to grim pollution of groundwater and soils and eventually has an effect on the livelihood of the poor (21).
However, business activities also impact on the environment significantly in many ways. Business activities take every possible action to earn money even if it involves damaging the environment or causing death. As a result, the companies often create catastrophic that destroy the environment, for instance, oil that spilt into the Gulf of Mexico on 2010, and Hooker Chemical's waste that dumped in Love Canal-Niagara on the 1940s (Knufken 2010). In addition, Jowit (2010) stated that in 2008 some companies had damaged the environment, and based on a Trucost’s investigation, the estimated loss value caused by enterprise activities in 2008 was US$2.2
Because of unplanned urbanization and unregulated industrialization and there heavy use of chemical and pesticides in the agriculture sector had a very bad impact on the environment of the country. As well as ill-managed tourism activities and high population growth and uneven development and income distribution and poverty have been putting pressure over the ecological system of Turkey. There was increase in air pollution in cities and industrial sites, soil pollution, ground and undergrounded water pollution, noise pollution, deforestation and loss of bio-diversity these all contributed to increasing degradation. The county is building an extensive network of hydro-electric energy source in the south-east part of the country and also cleaner-burning natural gas will replace coal in power
