Indian non-ferrous metal industries have been regis-tering a considerable growth since the last five years and also witnessing uptum in its fortunes. The present econo-mic scenario in the country is also highly conducive to all round growth and development of non-ferrous metal industries. This growth of non-ferrous metal industries have contributed to the sever problems of environmental degradation by way of discharge of wastes into air, nat-ural water bodies or subsoil. The ultimate impact is felt in the health and well being of men, women, children and ultimately the total ecology comprising the animal, aquatic life, insects and plants. Environmental degra-dation has become one of the most pressing problem throu-ghout the world. Non-ferrous sector is facing increasing pressure to eliminate or at least reduce waste and pollution. The present paper is a critical review, which includes magnitude of base metal production, innovative and effective. approaches to environmental improvement and finally presents various measures to prevent and control pollution in base metal industries.
