About the book
The Environmental Pollution is the most important problem facing the mankind today due to unplanned urbanization, rapid industrialization, and uncontrolled use of hazardous chemicals in agriculture coupled with lack of treatment facilities. Fortunately lot of research is going on in various premier organizations to tackle this problem. ENVIRONMENT: Pollution and Protection tries to find solutions to some of the predominant environmental problems. The topics discussed in this book are quite diverse, ranging from treatment of heavy metals, various dyes and other hazardous chemicals using various technologies, to groundwater pollution and solid waste management including air quality impact assessment and environmental management. The issue of environmental pollution and protection is discussed in a lucid language with numerous figures and tables.
