Despite all the regulatory controls and properly planned procedures, well equipped facilities, and suitably trained personnel, emergencies can still happen due to human error. These emergencies may be involving some volumes of liquid or gas. These are highly mobile in the environment and can cause permanent damage to the environment and cause human morbidity. The Department of Waste Management and Pollution Control, with a responsibility to protect the environment (soils, water, air) from pollution, should be prepared to attend to these emergencies in view of other expected players is thus developing an Emergency Respond Plan(ERP).
such as noise, heat, or light. Pollutants, the elements of pollution, can be foreign substances or energies, or naturally occurring; when naturally occurring, they are considered contaminants when they exceed natural levels. Pollution is often classed as point source or nonpoint source pollution . The Blacksmith Institute issues annually a list of the world's worst polluted places. In the 2007 issues the ten top nominees are located in Azerbaijan , China , India , Peru , Russia , Ukraine and Zambia . In the late industrial age, the term overpollution was common, representing a view that was both critical of industrial ...

a study of waste management and pollution control (with reference ...
Waste Management is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. The concept of Waste Management is based on Pollution Control. Pollution production is generated via four sectors of human activities; industry, energy, transportation, and agriculture. This study merely attempts to identify environmental pollution which occurs due to industries. Applying theoretical and conceptual ideas on Waste Management and Pollution Control in industry ... market research, surveys and trends


Chapter 11. Waste management: International Development Research ...
In South Africa, waste production is relatively high because the country has relied on mining and related power production for much of its economic development and has generally encouraged wasteful use of natural resources and raw materials by keeping the prices of these inputs extremely low through subsidies. In stark contrast to the extent of the problem, policies and regulatory systems to control, or even prevent, waste and pollution have often been weak, fragmented, and ineffective. The waste problem did not catch the attention of the government or the public until recently. Public concern about the importation of toxic ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The chicken waste conundrum
a man familiar with rural life, depended on "good manure." When Mr. Truman's wife Bess was asked why the president couldn't use the more delicate word "fertilizer," she replied that it had taken her 25 years to get him to say "manure." Whatever it is called — litter, droppings, excreta — it is a major factor in chicken farming, as anyone who has been caught downwind of a chicken house can attest. Maryland produces nearly 300 million broilers per year, and a byproduct of that process is an estimated 400,000 pounds of what the industry refers to as "chicken litter." ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What is industrial pollution and what are its causes and effects ...
The waste from industries are directly dumped into surrounding water bodies and open lands which causes various types of pollution. This is known as industrial pollution In the United States industry is the greatest source of pollution, accounting for more than half the volume of all water pollution and for the most deadly pollutants. Some 370,000 manufacturing facilities use huge quantities of freshwater to carry away wastes of many kinds. The waste-bearing water, or effluent, is discharged into streams, lakes, or oceans, which in turn disperse the polluting substances. In its National Water Quality Inventory, reported to ...
