Pollution control is a term used in environmental management. It means the control of emissions and effluents into air, water or soil. Without pollution control, the waste products from consumption, heating, agriculture, mining, manufacturing, transportation and other human activities, whether they accumulate or disperse, will degrade the environment. Pollution Control is an Open Access OMICS Group Journal which is named as Journal of Pollution Effects & Control. In the hierarchy of controls, pollution prevention and waste minimization are more desirable than pollution control. In the field of land development, low impact development is a similar technique for the prevention of urban runoff. Pollution prevention describes activities that reduce the amount of pollution generated by a process, whether it is consumer consumption, driving, or industrial production. In contrast to most pollution control strategies, which seek to manage a pollutant after it is formed and reduce its impact upon the environment, the pollution prevention approach seeks to increase the efficiency of a process, thereby reducing the amount of pollution generated at its source. Although there is wide agreement that source reduction is the preferred strategy, some professionals also use the term pollution prevention to include pollution reduction. Few significant classifications of Pollution Control are Air Pollution Control, Air Quality, Emission Tax, Environmental Management, Environmental Policy, Environmental Pollution, Environmental Problem , Environmental Protection, Environmental Regulation, Nonpoint Source Pollution, Pollution Prevention, Water Pollution, Water Quality, Water Resource etc., Journal of Pollution Effects & Control which has been OMICS Group Journal Publishes Original Research, Case Studies, Short Communication, Rapid Review, Review articles etc.Pollution Control Open Access can be easily accessible by scientific community and required informations can be generated from it.
