Several efforts have been made over recent years to maintain a safe and clean environment. However, environmental pollution is getting worst and poses a major threat to the Earth. 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” (Kemp, 1998, p. 129). There are five known pollution which is in the form of air, water, land, noise and light (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). The first type of pollution is air pollution.
Also, nitrous oxide is released when the nitrogen in livestock’s manure and urine is broken down. As known, vehicles and cars need fuel in order to move; however the fuel needs to get burned down in order for the car/ vehicle to move. The process of breaking down the fuel produces nitrous oxide; however, the amount of nitrous oxide released depends on the type of fuel used and some other factors. Not only that, but also during industrial processes; for example, production of nitric acid, N2O is produced as a side product of the chemical
It is the presence of foreign toxic substances or pollutants into the air. There are many different types of air pollutants that are introduced into the air such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and, nitrogen dioxide. Moreover, pollutants fall under the two categories: primary pollutants and secondary pollutants. Primary pollutants are gases or particles like intentionally emitted from human behavior, for example: vehicles exhausts emit
The mixture is said to contain traces of pollen, soot, dust, smoke, and liquid (Particle Pollution, 2016). This form of air pollution appears to affect densely populated, high trafficked areas of the United States. Sources of PM can be traced to exhaust fumes from vehicles, work sites, and possibly nearby industrial plants. Further damage to air quality by PM, involves other harmful matter. PM goes through chemical reactions that involves nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxides (Particulate Matter, n.d.).
Carbon dioxide is mainly produced by burning of fossil fuel either by cars or factories. Humans need a way to reduce the concentration of CO2 in the atmospheric. By using carbon dioxide as the gas source in enhanced oil recovery, we can reduce CO2 that being is being released to the atmosphere. However, every method has its own respective negative impacts too. Thus, by using carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery, oil and gas companies can increase the oil production and reduced the emission of carbon dioxide into atmosphere but it will also lead to increase in investment.
This pollution can result in death to humans, decreases to living organisms and even damage living organisms. Air Pollution is among the most pressing of today 's environmental issues.There are many types of air pollution problems that range from climate change to human health issues. This report will provide an overview related to this issue, This report will also teach you about Particular Matter and the ozone gas that are both harmful with specific attention on solutions that will help the reader to grab attention on how to help the world stop or at least decrease this wide spread phenomenon called air
Studies showed that nanoparticles like TiO and C caused air pollution, inflammation, skin injury, and lung accumulation . Air pollutants include gaseous pollutants (e.g, carbon mono oxide, ozone, oxides of nitrogen and sulfur dioxide) and particulate matters (PMs). In this review article, we discuss air-polluted particle (include ambient air particles, disel exhaust, ozone and carbon monoxide) and adverse effects of them on cardiovascular disease. Ambient Particulate Matter
The green surface or also called “world’s lung” and the eruptions of the volcanoes they release some chemicals into the atmosphere, but the one who most affects the human society is the Acid Rain. Acid gasses are produced when fossil fuels, like oil or petroleum are burnt in power stations, factories or in our homes. The gases that come out from factories are called SO2 (Sulphur dioxide), and the gases that come from cars and trucks are called and N02 (nitrogen dioxide). Nitrogen dioxide creates nitric acid, sulphur dioxide creates sulphuric acid. Car and truck exhaust fumes are also acid gasses.
Global warming is one of the factors created by pollution and other variants. In the world there are two types of pollution and one connected outcome one type of pollution is air pollution, another is water pollution, and the outcome is global warming. Air pollution has the most harmful effects on the environment with support by people that believe in air pollution and opposed by those who don’t. Air contamination is divided into two broad categories: primary and
By using electricity generated from fossil fuel power stations, burning gas for heating or driving a petrol or diesel car, every person is responsible for CO2 emissions. Furthermore every product or service that humans consume indirectly creates CO2 emissions; energy is required for their production, transport and disposal. These products and services may also cause emissions of other greenhouse
