Industrial Pollutants

Print

Industrial pollution is caused primarily by industrial processes, the burning of coal, oil and natural gas, which in turn produce smoke and fumes. Because the burning fuels contain large amounts of sulfur, the principal ingredients of smoke and fumes are sulfur dioxide and particulate matter. This type of pollutant occurs most severely during still, damp and cool weather, such as at night. Even in its less severe form, this pollutant is not confined to just cities. Because of air movements, the pollutants move for miles over the surrounding countryside.

Working with Federal, State and Local mandated regulations and by carefully monitoring emissions, business has greatly reduced the amount of pollutant introduced from its industrial sources, striving to obtain an acceptable level. Because of the industrial emission clean up, many land areas and streams in and around the cities have now begun to move back in the direction of nature's intended balance.
