INDUSTRIAL POLLUTION IN INDIA

Introduction
Industrialization is the process of social and economic change that transforms a human group from a pre-industrial society into an industrial one. It is a part of a wider modernization process, where social change and economic development are closely related with technological innovation, particularly with the development of large-scale energy and metallurgy production. Since independence, India has achieved a good measure of self-sufficiency in manufacturing a variety of basic and capital goods. Some of the major industries in India are textiles industry, chemicals industry, food processing industry, steel industry, cement industry, mining, petroleum and software industry. Industrial Pollution Indias industrial rise is closely accompanied by a mounting problem of pollution and the destruction of natural resources. Industrial pollution hurts the environment in a range of ways, and it has a negative impact on human lives and health. Pollutants can kill animals and plants, imbalance ecosystems, degrade air quality radically, damage buildings, and generally degrade quality of life. Industrial pollution can include air pollution like carbon dioxide, monoxide and ozone; water pollution in the form of petroleum spillage, radiation and heat, land pollution caused by pollutants like heavy metals, noise pollution and e-wastes.

Objective
Students will be able to: Describe the impact of industrial pollution on human lives and health. Understand and calculate the percentage of hazardous elements in industrial pollution through basic computational skills. Apply statistical skills to understand real-life issues and problems of industrial pollution.( Represent and organize data) Develop an awareness of the potential benefits and limitations of Industrialization. Find out the major industry that produces the maximum industrial pollution in India through comparative study. Give solutions to manage the industrial wastes. Work cooperatively in small groups. Communicate results and conclusions to an audience. ST.MARYSSCHOOL

The Task
The class is divided into 5 groups. The following are the topics allotted to each group: Group 1: Industrialization & Air pollution in India. Group 2: Industrialization & Water pollution in India. Group 3: Industrialization & Land pollution in India. Group 4: Industrial pollution in Delhi. Group 5: Industrialization & chemical wastes in India. In this Project each group will investigate What is Industrialization? Which are the major industries in India that produce the maximum amount of pollutants? Impacts of Industrial pollution on our environment and human lives. Health hazards due to Industrial Pollutants. Draw a pie chart to show the impact of industrial pollution on human health. Take any four major industries and find out the amount of pollutants they give out to the environment. The elements present in these pollutants and calculate their percentage composition. Represent the amount of the pollutants given out by these four industries in a form of Bar Graph. How industrial wastes can be managed/treated/recycled. How much money (What % of the total money) is spent on managing the industrial wastes by an industry. What is Mathematical Modeling and how is this used in reducing the Industrial wastes.

The Process
Using the Internet and other sources of information each group of students will do research on their topics. They will then prepare and present a report of their topics to the class. Following essentials are required to be fulfilled for the preparation and submission of the project: 1. The total length of the project report will not be more than 15 written pages of foolscap size (A-4 size). 2. The project report will be handwritten and credit will be awarded to original drawings, illustrations and creative use of materials. 3. The project report will be presented in a neatly bound simple folder. 4. The project report will be developed and presented in the following order Cover page showing project title, student information, school and year List of contents with page numbers. Acknowledgements (acknowledging the institution, offices and libraries visited and persons who have helped). Project Overview : Purpose, Aim, Methodology and experiences while doing the project. Chapters with relevant headings. Summary and conclusions based on findings. All the photographs and sketches should be labeled and acknowledged. Bibliography : Should have the Title, pages referred, author, publisher, year of ST.MARYSSCHOOL

publication and the name of the websites with the specific website link which has been used.
