      Positive and negative effects of e-waste. Electronic waste or e-waste constitutes the electronic products that have become unwanted or reached the end of their usable life cycle. It is a subject of matter for politicians and business developers as countries across the globe generate a million tonnes of e-waste every year. Studies show that developed countries have been dumping their e-waste . Somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, at a spot where there is almost no wind, lies a new continent. Estimated to be twice the size of our country, this continent is a huge swirling mass of plastic waste. Nothing lives there anymore, except plankton. But for every pound of plankton, there is at least six pounds of non-biodegradable plastic.

    Effects of Pollution of Water. Diseases: In humans, drinking or consuming polluted water in any way has many disastrous effects on our health. It causes typhoid, cholera, hepatitis and various other diseases. Destruction of Ecosystems: Ecosystems are extremely dynamic and respond to even small changes in the environment. Water pollution can. Industrial water pollution is caused by the discharge of harmful chemicals and compounds into water, which makes it unsuitable for drinking and other purposes. Although 70% of the Earth is covered by water, only water bodies like lakes, ponds, rivers, reservoirs, and streams provide us with fresh water, and so, keeping them clean is an issue of survival not only for humans but for .

      Some landfills are used for waste management purposes, such as the temporary storage, consolidation and transfer of waste, or the processing of waste material for storing, treating, or recycling. Environmental dumping is the practice of shipping waste (household waste, industrial/nuclear waste, etc.) from one country to another. Statistics have revealed (page 47 in link) that when looking at food waste at the production stage, about 99% of the waste occurs on land with extremely high levels of degradation—which puts undue stress on land that has already worked hard to produce food for us. 5. It harms biodiversity.

This book provides comprehensive information on the functioning of earthworm and factors affecting the process and performance of vermiremediation. The book provides the research on earthworm assisted remediation of industrial and municipal effluents and sludges with solid waste management (SWM).

Effluents from aquaculture facilities contain elevated concentrations of nutrients, organic matter, and suspended solids and can pollute natural waters.

On a daily basis, the effluents generated from domestic and industrial activities constitute a main cause of pollution of receiving water bodies, which is a great burden on water quality management. Effluent can cause physiological stress, reduce fertility, lead to deviations from normal growth of corals and other marine organisms, potentially reduce growth rates of symbiotic algae, and when severe, result in outright mortality.

This form of pollution may also make corals more susceptible to bleaching. The changes in the nutrient concentrations of water may lead to harmful effects to humans and aquatic life. Most heavy metals in streams of water are commonly associated with industrial discharges (Mdamo, ) and almost heavy metals common in industrial effluents have cumulative toxins to aquatic life.

Abstract. The textile production industry is one of the oldest and most technologically complex of all industries.

The fundamental strength of this industry flows from its strong production base of a wide range of fibers/yarns from natural fibers like cotton, jute, silk, and wool to synthetic/man-made fibers like polyester, viscose, nylon, and acrylic.

teaching material for undergraduate courses in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Sciences and related courses. Volume 2 (Basic principles of wastewater treatment) is also introductory, but at a higher level of detailing.

The core of this book is the unit operations and processes associated with biological wastewater. Burning of any disposed waste and plastic materials results in air and environmental pollution. Though we all are familiar with common methods of waste management like landfills, incineration, recycling, biological processing or energy conservation; we find ourselves living in a world filled with waste.

Wastewater effluents are major contributors to a variety of water pollution problems. Most cities of developing countries generate on the average 30–70 mm3 of wastewater per person per year. Owing to lack of or improper wastewater treatment facilities, wastewater and its effluents are often discharged into surface water sources, which are receptacles for.

Plastic toxins in dumps and from litter can seep into the groundwater, which people drink every day. On land, wind can carry plastic waste or litter throughout the environment.

It can get stuck in trees, fences, traffic lights, or other structures. the dumpsites have serious effects to people settled around or next to them.

The group at risk from this un- scientific disposal of solid waste includes-the population in areas where there is no proper waste disposal method, especially the pre-school children, waste workers and workers in facilities producing toxic and infectious mate- rials.

While the potter’s clay forms the base material providing plasticity, stone dust was used as a reinforcement material and tea waste provided porosity to the membrane.

“Our aim was to use waste materials from neighbourhood as far as possible to reduce costs and at the same time ensure an efficient output,” he added. The goal of a recycled paper or board manufacturer is to make a product that meets customers΄ specification and requirements.

At the present utilization rate, using recycled fibres in commodity grades such as newsprint and packaging paper and board has not caused noticeable deterioration in product quality and performance (Čabalová et al.

Hazardous-waste management - Hazardous-waste management - Treatment, storage, and disposal: Several options are available for hazardous-waste management. The most desirable is to reduce the quantity of waste at its source or to recycle the materials for some other productive use.

Nevertheless, while reduction and recycling are desirable options, they are not regarded. The industrial waste stream contains numerous chemical substances that are defined in terms of reactivity, ignitability, toxicity and corrosivity.

As such, the waste generated is always somewhat hazardous and coupled with the lacking waste management systems, the environment is periodically exposed to high scores of industrial waste pollution.Plastic pollution, harmful accumulation of synthetic plastic products in the environment.

Plastics are persistent large-scale pollutants, and plastic debris (such as bottles, straws, containers, and plastic wrap) and particulates have been found in many environmental niches, from Mount Everest to the bottom of the sea. 63 Figure BOD reduction of textile waste effluents by isolated microbial species [A = scence, B = cans, C = idium, D =E = ii, F = ticum] Figure Effect of dye concentration on decolourization by binary mixed culture of scence and 64
