The Pollution Demon and What We Can Do About It

Industrial Pollution

“Grow Now, Clean Up Later” Just Won’t Work Indians are drowning, choking and gasping in a miasma of pollution. Our waterbodies, cities, towns, villages – even the very air we breathe – are increasingly getting more fetid due to the negligence and ignorance of our crushing population. The single word “pollution” is an umbrella term […]

Modeling and Simulation – Evaluating Scenarios

Modelling and simulation

There are many complex processes in the natural world which cannot be understood in terms of logical algorithms. There are a couple of methods by which such processes can be understood. One of the methods is through data collection from the environment. The power of this method is borne out through data-driven programming. Machine Learning, […]

“Air pollution can increase the strength of cyclones formation over the Pacific Ocean!”

Air Pollution

Air pollution does not adhere to international borders. A statistical modeling to calculate the effect of air pollution on the storm formation trends over the pacific, conducted by the research team of Texas A&M showed that air pollution has powerful consequences for cyclone formation. Pollution from China is spreading contaminants to the West Coast in […]

Effect of Population on Water Quality

Effect of Population on Water Quality The most limited resource is water. Though it covers over three fourth of the earth’s surface, freshwater is only 2% of that, and most of it is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. As population density increases, the demand for the limited freshwater also increases. Increase in population […]

Sensor Based Sorting Of Waste

  Waste Segregation has become more complex than it was a few years back – it is no longer just paper, plastic, and glass but it contains multi-layer packaging and other composite waste as well. Recycling can only take place when waste is segregated. As the amount of waste keeps increasing the number of people […]

Waste Management – Health Hazards Faced by Waste Workers in India

Waste management in developing countries is seen as an “if all else fails” option, and with good reason: the risks to health caused by this job are astronomical. Waste is scarcely segregated, and the recyclable waste is mixed with organic, medical, and non-recyclable waste are left to rot by the roadsides which involves physical handling […]
