Comparing Global Air Emission Standards Governing the Pesticide Industry

,

air pollutionWith the worsening of China’s PM 2.5 problems, there is an urgent need of effective governance against pollutant emission which must be achieved by improving the compulsory standard targeting specific industries. In China, 50% of the PM 2.5 particulates are directly released as emissions, while the other half is generated indirectly from the waste byproducts of various industries. These indirect precursor substances, known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), are usually transformed through sunlight and heat into, nitrates, sulfates and aerosols and are a hugely overlooked and under regulated factor in PM 2.5 formation. As the majority of VOCs are attributable to pesticide production, a national standard, the “Air Emission Standard for Pesticide Industry” is being developed, which could support the newly promulgated “National Standard of Ambient Air Quality”.

It is very important issue,but raising after along time.In india, the major agrochemical industries are located at&nbsp;Ankhleshwar,Panoli&amp;Vapi(Gurat).You all will surprised that after the major accident in Union carbide,Bhopal(Madeypradesh(India),all major agrochemical industries&nbsp;are given environmental clearance for establishment in Gujrat..No data is published which show the emission standard according to the National Emission Standard asperG.S.R46(E)dated3 februrary,2006.<br /> Why the standard of emission are not implemented?

The issue of environment will not resolved only by enforcement&nbsp;agencies.Many other non governing agencies must involved to resolve this issue.

So, you agree that it is a global problem,but solution is not only to comment.We must join hand together&amp;generate fund to fight against the pollution problem.People are making front to fight against corruption and in this issue you may find the connection&nbsp;of corruption&amp;pollution.As industrial pollution is controlled by corruption.
