Natural resources Environment is important for social and economic life 1. Resource for food supply 2. Energy source 3. Source for recreation 4. Major source of medicine 5. Natural resources for industrial product The effects on the environment connected with industrial activities are mainly related to the production of industrial wastes that can be divided into various types: solid waste, such as dust particles or slag from coal; liquid wastes from various processes, including radioactive coolants from power stations; and gas wastes, largely produced by the chemical industry. different types of pollution 1. Air pollution  Air pollution is actually harmful substances in the atmosphere which damages the environment. With the development of industries came along the increase in air pollution  2. Water   Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies ( e.g lakes, rivers, oceans, groundwater) Waterpollution occurs when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds by mainly the industries Polluted air creates a hazard to general health.

3. Noise  Noise pollution comes from such machines as airplanes. motor vehicles. Many animals fail to multiply. Warm water contains less oxygen. Thermal  Thermal ollution It is caused by addition of hot effluents and hot water bodies. Deforestations f. Power plants creating electricity from fossil fuel b. Land  Land pollution is the degradation of earth’s land surfaces often caused by human activities and their misuse of land resources. Trout eggs fail to hatch while salmon does not spawm at higher temperature. Noise does not dirty the air. 5. but it can cause discomfort. Water as a cooling agent in industrial facilities . and industrial equipment. So there is decrease in rate of decomposition of organic matter. It occurs when waste is not disposed properly. Urbanization b. or land. anxiety. Mining and erosion 4. Industrial waste d. Green algae are replaced by less desirable blue green algae.  We can classify major sources that lead to thermal pollution to the following categories: a. water.  The main reason for land pollution a. and improper use of soil by inadequate agricultural practice are a few factors. Health hazard disposal of urban and industrial wastes. construction machinery. Municipal solid waste c. and hearing loss in human beings and other animals. exploitation of minerals. Burning open dumps and forest fires e. Effects of water pollution are said to be the leading cause of death for humans globe.

beryllium. Agriculture sources 6. describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. or only to product that cannot be used for its intended purpose. Electro  Electronic waste. and refurbishing industries. such as CRTs. reuse. There is a lack of consensus as to whether the term should apply to resale. or brominated flame retardants. Some electronic scrap components. Soil erosion e. though these countries are also most likely to reuse and repair electronics. cadmium. Deforestation of the shoreline d. Even in developed countries recycling and disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to workers and communities and great care must be taken to avoid unsafe exposure in recycling operations and leaching of material such as heavy metals from landfills and incinerator ashes. “Penanganan tiap polusi belum lid” . Informal processing of electronic waste in developing countries may cause serious health and pollution problems.c. may contain contaminants such as lead.
