Everything That You Need To Know About Environmental Pollution Control

The 21st century has witnessed far more damage to the environment than ever before. The damages have been irreversible and have impacted the quality of life intensively. Due to the advancements in science and technology, intensive research has been carried out to devise methods that would help eliminate or reduce the further impact of environmental damage.


Research over the years has led to specialized and proven methods that include environmental pollution control and the study of the environment and its engineering principles, called environmental engineering. All in all, the key fundamentals of both environmental pollution control methodology and environmental engineering remain the same.

Components Of Environmental Pollution Controlling Methodologies

The components of environmental pollution control are numerous. However, the primary focus of each of these components is to achieve the following:

  • Manage the land development
  • Effectively design transportation systems to minimize pollution levels
  • Monitor pollution levels on an everyday basis
  • Efficient environment planning

The ultimate motive is to employ means that can help minimize or limit the damage caused to the environment. The ‘damage’ here can come from industrial wastes, improper traffic management (pollution), and much more.


How To Exercise Environmental Pollution Control?

Pollution control and prevention methods are practical methods that can be applied to any pollution-causing activities. They also include methods that can trace potential pollution-causing activities and use methods to prevent them from becoming pollution-generating hubs.


These prevention methods are usually applied to pollution-causing activities across various domains such as consumer, agriculture, industry, energy, and federal.


The outcome of these pollution control methods are as follows:

  • Preservation of wetlands
  • Preservation of groundwater sources
  • Preservation of ecosystem
  • Prevention of generating more pollution inducing regions


Segregation Based On Sectors

Here is the need for pollution control based on the energy sectors.

In the energy sector, pollution control can be used for the following:

  • Reduction of environmental damages caused by industrial processing methods
  • Pollution caused by transportation (fuel combustion)
  • Pollution is caused due to processes such as extradition
  • Increased efficiency of energy use
  • Use of environmentally friendly fuels

In the agricultural sector, pollution control methodologies enable the following:

  • Reduction in usage of chemical
  • Judicious use of water resources
  • Adaptation to environmental friendly pesticides
  • Protection of highly vulnerable agricultural regions

In the industrial sector, pollution control methodologies have the potential to:

  • Reduce waste production
  • Promote the usage of less toxic synthesizers
  • Promote and create the awareness about energy conservation practices
  • Promote and create the awareness about water conservation practices
  • Promote ‘reuse’

At homes, and other areas of public vicinity, pollution control would mean:

  • Promoting the usage of reusable products such as water bottles and containers
  • Introducing automatic lights that would turn off when not in use
  • Ensuring there are no leaky hoses or faucets


The saying ‘what goes around, comes around’ is very true in all aspects of our life. Consider the environment we live in. After being depleted for over centuries together, the environment has now begun making human civilization pay for its cruel deeds.

Ignoring the warning signs would mean making ourselves more vulnerable and approachable to mishaps that have the potential to end the human race completely.

Thankfully, our researchers and scientists have started suggested several environmental pollution control techniques to help minimise the damage and prevent the scope of inviting new ones.
