Serious impact of industrial emissions on the environment

Posted on November 15, 2023

The atmosphere is currently facing a serious challenge as industrial emissions strongly impact the air quality we breathe daily. In this article, we will take a close look at industrial emissions and their effects on air pollution levels. We will also examine the aspects affecting human health and the natural ecosystem.

Industrial Emissions and Causes of Air Pollution

Industrial emissions are one of the most significant sources of global air pollution. This originates from the production processes and industrial activities that generate a large amount of environmentally harmful substances. These emissions include nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2), primarily from the combustion of fossil fuels, especially in the energy and transportation sectors.

Moreover, industries release carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and greenhouse gases (GHGs) during production processes, from the use of chemicals to complex industrial procedures. These substances, when combined in the air, create polluted air, resulting in a decrease in air quality and causing harm to human health and the natural environment.

Impact of Industrial Emissions on Health

Industrial emissions not only directly impact the living environment but also have a direct effect on human health. Inhaling a large amount of harmful emissions or continuous exposure to them can increase the risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and the likelihood of lung cancer. These emissions can penetrate the human body, spread to other parts, and cause poisoning, nervous system disorders, and overall weakening of the body.

In addition, regular exposure to pollutants can lead to diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, and bronchitis. Dust sticking to the eyes can cause pain and swelling, reducing vision. People living in a polluted environment for an extended period may affect the immune system, resistance, and overall life expectancy.

It can be said that minimizing industrial emissions is a way to improve health and enhance the quality of life.

Impact of Industrial Emissions on the Environment 

Environmental issues related to industrial emissions not only affect the air and water but also have a significant impact on ecosystems and biodiversity. Acidification of water environments, a major factor originating from industrial emissions, can cause a decrease in water temperature and an increase in the density of seawater and groundwater, altering the habitats of many fish and marine animals.

Furthermore, industrial emissions can cause ozone layer depletion in the atmosphere. The ozone layer is responsible for protecting the Earth from harmful ultraviolet rays. Some compounds in emissions have the ability to deplete the ozone layer, creating conditions for powerful ultraviolet rays to penetrate the Earth's surface and harm human health, animals, and plants. This leads to the Earth warming, resulting in abnormal climate changes such as storms, floods, prolonged rain, negatively affecting human activities and life.

The impact of industrial emissions on plants and animals is unlimited in causing damage and threatening species, leading to a decline or extinction of some species, causing disruptions in the food chain and the natural ecosystem, leading to global instability in ecological balance and biodiversity.

iLotusLand Software - A Solution to Industrial Emissions

According to Decree 40/2019/ND-CP and Circular 25/2019/TT-BTNMT, projects with potential pollution risks must conduct regular environmental monitoring. These projects need to install automatic continuous monitoring stations, surveillance cameras, and continuously transmit data to the Department of Natural Resources and Environment according to regulations. For projects with emissions exceeding technical standards, the operation of the emission monitoring system needs to be reassessed. Systems that do not meet quality standards must be upgraded and renovated before discharging into the environment.

With the mission of protecting our living environment in the best possible way, iLotusLand, with a team of highly qualified technical experts, is committed to advising, designing, and installing a comprehensive, easy-to-install and stable air monitoring data software system for customers. We will provide consulting solutions, develop and install monitoring stations compliant with standards, offering surprising benefits!

In today's world of enterprise information technology, there are numerous factors that a company must carefully consider to decide whether deploying cloud infrastructure, On-Cloud, is the appropriate choice. Conversely, there are many companies that cannot adopt On-Cloud and instead opt for On-Premise deployment. What is On-Premise vs. On-Cloud? What are the significant differences between on-premise and on-cloud, and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each model? Let's explore together to gain a clearer understanding of this crucial decision-making process.

Environmental monitoring is the process of using tools and measuring devices to collect data on environmental factors such as air, water, soil, waste, and noise. There are seven main types of environmental monitoring: air, soil, water, waste, noise, spectral, and atmospheric monitoring; all of them are crucial for providing key information about the environment. The primary purpose of environmental monitoring is to assess and track changes in the environment and the impact of activities such as production, construction, and transportation on the components of the environment.
