The NJDEP air toxics program has evolved over the years into a multi-pronged approach to decrease air toxic emissions in our state. NJDEP's first attempt to specifically address exposure to air toxics, was in 1979 when N.J.A.C.7:27-17, “ Control and Prohibition of Air Pollution by Toxic Substances ” was adopted. This regulation listed eleven “Toxic Volatile Organic Substances” (TVOS) and required that sources emitting those TVOS into the air register with the NJDEP, and demonstrate that they were using state-of-the-art controls to limit their emissions.  Since that time, the NJDEP ...

Fighting pollution with pollution in oil-stained Gulf
Roughly five million liters of dispersants have now been used to break up the oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico, making this the largest use of such chemicals in U.S. history. If it continues for 10 months, as long as Mexico’s Ixtoc 1 blowout in 1979 in the same region, the Macondo well disaster has a good chance of achieving the largest global use of these chemicals, surpassing 10 million liters. And there is no doubt that dispersants are toxic: Both types of the dispersal compound Corexit used in the Gulf so far are capable of killing or depressing the growth of a wide range of aquatic species, ranging from ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What are the different types of industrial pollution? - Yahoo! Answers
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 Congress in 1996, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency concluded that approximately 40% of the nation's surveyed lakes, rivers, and estuaries were too polluted ...
