Generally, industrial pollution occurs in developed and developing countries where more industrial estates are built to house the increasing number of industries. In other words, industries are to blame for industrial pollution.
Industrial pollution can be harmful to animals, landscape and human beings. Harmful chemicals, industrial waste and oil are dumped into rivers and seas. Thus, the lives of the fish and birds are threatened by pollution. The dangerous fumes released too, can cause further pollution. Fumes that contain poisonous chemicals such as sulphur dioxide are given off by factories. This chemical becomes a weak acid when mixed with water in the air. This resulted in the formation of acid rain. Acid rain can damage building and trees.
Therefore, rigid guidelines should be given to industries, on how to dispose of chemicals and other industrial waste.
