Example text

Public concern about the environment continues to grow. Public education through various media, such as school, TV, and the Internet, have become powerful tools for spreading information about the environment and its impact on human health. Protection of the environment is increasingly becoming a social responsibility. With increasing understanding of 32 Decontamination of Heavy Metals pollutants and their long-term consequences for the environment, some pollutants that were considered less harmful have become more important.

Waste treatment systems require investment in design, installation, operation, and maintenance, but these systems contribute no financial benefits to industries and human beings. Pollution control technologies may also transfer pollutants from one environmental medium (air, water, or land) to another, causing potential secondary pollution problems that require further treatment and disposal. They address only short-term problems rather than eliminating pollutants. Costs of pollution control, cleanup, and liability have risen every year, as have the costs of resource inputs, energy, and raw materials.

3 P2 Laws and Regulations Several laws have been established in the past 40 years for pollution control and prevention. Among them, the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 is the most important. 12 Most industries must meet discharge standards for the pollutants. Specific methods of control such as pollution prevention are not specified. Many facilities have used pollution prevention as a means of reducing the cost of compliance with federal regulations. State and local authorities also have responsibilities to implement the provisions of the CWA.
