Sinha, S N and Agrawal, M K and Saha, R K (1998) Pollution and its Control in Copper Industry. In: Environmental & Waste Management in NoN-Ferrous Metallurgical Industries. NML Jamshedpur, Jamshedpur, pp. 185-196. ISBN 81-87053-28-7



Pollution is a result of development or civilization. "Nature" does not pollute but "Industry " does. The earth being the main source of most minerals, its protection from misuse is of major significance . The wide spread industrialisation in absence of a predefined direction contributes significantly to pollution , depletion of useful natural resources and ecological imbalance. The matter has been getting serious attention now to combat risk to life and to ensure conservation of resources. The paper presents the extent, nature and effects of pollution by copper industry. It also highlights various measures to control environmental degradation and to reduce the effects of waste and intermediate products on environment. Possible safety measures and tolerable limits of discharges of effluents into air and water are also indicated. Recent technologies to control pollution in copper industry have been discussed.
