      Both methods produce hydrogen for storage, and later consumption in an electric fuel cell. Fuel Cell or Battery? Battery and hydrogen-powered vehicles have the same goal: to reduce the environmental impact from oil consumption. There are two ways to measure the environmental impact of vehicles, from “Well to Wheels” and from “Cradle to. Vehicular pollution has grown at an alarming rate due to growing urbanisation in India. The air pollution from vehicles in urban areas, particularly in big cities, has become a serious problem. The pollution from vehicles has begun to tell through symptoms like cough, headache, nausea, irritation of eyes, various bronchial and visibility problems.

    85% ethanol fuel (E85) can be used in flexible fuel vehicles. Other alternative transportation fuels such as natural gas a bio-diesel are most practical for fleets of vehicles. More information and assistance. For more information about motor vehicle pollution, contact Mark Sulzbach at air pollution Five ways to improve air quality in our cities. Air pollution poses a serious health risk in many European cities. But specific solutions are within reach.

    Air pollution from cities also affects rural areas for many miles downwind. In less developed regions, indoor air pollution from open fires burning wood and other fuels for heating and cooking can be a significant health hazard. Every industrial process exhibits its own pattern of air pollution. Urban sprawl, also called sprawl or suburban sprawl, the rapid expansion of the geographic extent of cities and towns, often characterized by low-density residential housing, single-use zoning, and increased reliance on the private automobile for transportation. Urban sprawl is caused in part by the need to accommodate a rising urban population; however, in many metropolitan areas it results.

Reducing Industrial Air Pollution. Pollutants are removed from the exhaust streams of power plants and industrial plants before they enter the atmosphere.

Particulates can be filtered out, and sulfur and nitric oxides can be broken down by catalysts. Removing these oxides reduces the pollutants that cause acid rain.

To reduce air pollution, the EPA sets air quality standards that regions must achieve, then tells polluters what adjustments they must make in order to meet the standards. For water pollution, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set emissions limits based on the technologies it considers reasonable to require of polluters.

Pollution from Automobiles—Problems and Solutions. Concern about the automobile as a source of air pollution has been expressed periodically, but national concern was first evidenced in the s when California established the first new car emission standards.

There are various methods that can be employed to reduce air pollution or to decrease the adverse effects of air pollution. On individual level. Adopt environment-friendly activities, for instance, car pooling, public transport, etc.

A huge range of smartphone-based pollution-monitoring apps allow users to determine the level of air pollution in their surroundings/5.

Government policies to reduce pollution. Tax. e.g. Carbon tax, which makes people pay the social cost of pollution. Subsidy. e.g. subsidy of alternative energy sources.
