Part of the Environmental Science and Engineering book series (ESE)


Gone are the days wherein industries are considered as main culprits of air pollution. The industries chimneys with emissions are hardly symbol of development and most of the air pollution equipments are available at competent prices with good service backup. Apart from end of pipe pollution control equipment this manufacturers are adopting new methods. This chapter discusses extended producers responsibility, extended polluters responsibility, zoning atlas for siting industries, green technologies, green belt, environmental impact assessment and solutions in some important air polluting industries.
