Industrial Pollution


Traditionally, industrial pollution control management was exclusively performed as an end-of-pipe control, comprising characterization of the chemicals; composition of the various emissions to air, water, and soil; assessment of the fate and effects of the pollutants in the environment; and regular control activities to verify that omissions were in compliance with the stipulated standards. The LGIL approach to integrated industrial pollution control combines the traditional control measures with internal systems for environmental management and dynamic integrated monitoring of the entire production facility.


Prior to the establishment of an environmental management system, a review of the environmental performance is done to set priorities for the environmental measures to be taken. The review considers all-important aspects of production which consume raw materials and chemicals or which may lead to environmental contaminations.


The main areas for improvement of environmental performance are:


Materials Used in Production:


Substitution of hazardous chemicals with chemicals less hazardous or eco-friendly to man or environment and reduction of the use of water, energy and other resources.


Efficiency of Production:


Recycling of water, raw material and waste, minimization of waste per unit of productions and improved production procedures for facilities.


Emissions of Production:


Treatment method for the various waste outlets that released into air and surface water, solid waste handling, and safe disposal of solid and liquid hazardous waste in secure landfills. LGIL has expertise in state-of-the art technologies and having a group of in-house expert scientists, technologists and engineers, with 20 years experience, in industrial pollution control programmes, including chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, pulp and paper, tanning, graphic and food processing industries.
