Natural Environment is full of beauty and hazards. The
nature plays the role of the scavenger to nullify the impacts of the pollution thus generated. However, ever-increasing industrialization has been contributing pollution much beyond the assimilative capacity of nature resulting in the degradation of the environment. Evidently, industry and environment are complementary to each other. The industries are required to grow to satisfy the need of society but at the same time, they need to do all this in an environmentally acceptable manner.
