The environmental consequences of rapid industrialization have resulted in countless incidents of land, air and water resources sites being contaminated with toxic materials and other pollutants, threatening humans and ecosystems with serious health risks. More extensive and intensive use of materials and energy has created cumulative pressures on the quality of local, regional and global ecosystems. The program is to provide an orientation to the methods that are applied to control and prevent environmental pollution.

The basic principles followed for eliminating negative impacts on the quality of water, air or land will be introduced and application of methods and technologies to reduce the effects of pollution and to minimize negative effects and ensure that environmental quality standards are achieved.
