Dear ABC Power Generation Sector,

Today I am going to inform you guys about:1.Some common air pollutants produced by your industry.2.Effects on the environment (if the air pollutants are not controlled):3.Ways to minimize production of the air pollutants from the industry:

1)Spray exhaust gases from coal-burning power stations with a suspension of calcium oxide (lime) or limestone to absorb sulfuric acid (Desulfurisation)2)Add calcium oxide or calcium hydroxide to lakes and soil.

-Production of acid rain (due to the presence of sulfuric dioxide in rain water)oCorrodes and destroys buildingsoKills terrestrial aquatic lifeoRemoves important soil nutrients

Common air pollutants produced:1.Sulfur Dioxide 2.Oxides of nitrogen3.Carbon Dioxide

Effects on the environment (if the air pollutants are not controlled):

-Production of Carbon Dioxide (due to the emission of gases from power plants)oIncrease in global temperature (leading to droughts)oMelting of ice at polar ice capsoIncrease in the ocean level (resulting in extensive floods and heavy rains)oFloods wash away fertile top soil, leaving behind soil with little nutrients

-Production of photochemical smog (due to the mixture of toxic compounds, dust and smoke)oReduce visibilityoDamage vegetations

Common air pollutants produced

Ways to minimize production of the air pollutants from the industry:
