Environment pollution : Case of China and what India can learn from it
As global economy is growing, the problem of environment pollution is also increasing rapidly and now it cannot be overlooked anymore. Indeed it is imperative for countries globally to restore their ecological environment. In 2016 the World health Organization (WHO) released a report on atmospheric pollution. In this report it is said that 92% of the world’s population are exposed to atmospheric pollution of hazardous level. Data from International Energy Agency (IEA) also shows that in 2016 , 6.5 million died as a result of atmospheric pollution. One of the cause for atmospheric pollution is the use of organic solvents during industrial production. Therefore, a matter that urgently needs to be addressed is the reduction of use of organic solvent in order to reduce VOC emission.
