Abstract

As shown in Fig. 16-1.1, environmental problems can be broadly divided into domestic and global problems. Japan’s environmental problems cover a broad spectrum, ranging from traditional industrial pollution caused mainly by business (hereinafter referred to as “pollution”) to global environmental problems such as ozone layer depletion.
