Ways To Reduce Air pollution

The contamination of air by unwanted substances is referred to as air pollution.

The substances which contaminate the air are called air pollutants.

Air pollution has a harmful effect on both living and non living things

Hence, it is important that air pollution should be reduced and controlled

The government is taking many steps to control air pollution

For example, a few years ago, Delhi was one of the most polluted cities in the world

The pollution was increasing because of the fumes released from automobiles running on diesel and petrol

A decision was taken to switch to fuels like CNG and unleaded petrol

These measures have resulted in cleaner air for the city

There is a need to switch over to cleaner fuels instead of fossil fuels for our energy requirements

These could be solar energy, hydropower and wind energy

These methods of generation of energy do not cause a lot of pollution, thus help in reducing pollution

There is another effective way of reducing air pollution

Trees play a major role in purifying air

They absorb odour ,pollutant gases and filter particulates out of air by trapping them on their leaves and bark

We need to plant more trees and nurture the ones already present

Burning of waste also causes a lot of air pollution

Instead of burning, organic waste can be disposed by composting

This helps in reducing pollution and also produces humus
