And the worst scenario takes place with the invention of atomic weapons and the development of atomic energy for energy houses. These developments in atomic field introduced the deadly contaminant radioactive pollutants to our green world.

Sources of these pollutants comes from a huge number of resources like industries, transports, chemical plants, power houses, house hold items, digital products etc. Apart from destroying the earth's natural resources these pollutants are said to be the primary cause of all the deadliest diseases appeared in last few decades. Studies show that 600 people die every hour because of water pollution alone. The worst affected countries are India and china.

It's not too late to get into pollution control activities for these developed countries. Though many preventive measures are taken worldwide the pollution rate seems to be growing every day. Recycling can play a major role in pollution control. By recycling the metals and nonmetals we can reduce the energy and raw materials consumed by the manufacturing industries.
