Almost every human action, however minute, impacts on the environment in some way. When it comes to industry, however, that footprint can be colossal. From mercury and lead pollution in mining, chromium pollution from tanneries and the dyeing industry, and agricultural pesticides, to noise pollution from wind turbines and sky high air pollution cumulated through transport and thermal power stations, not to mention the catastrophic consequences of industrial accidents. With climate change pushing the environment up the agenda, the impact of industry is in the spotlight more than ever before. Many countries now have much stricter environmental regulations, but legislation is worthless if it??s not enforced. Industrial contamination of soil, air and water has to be tested. And that??s where AWE International magazine comes in. Since its first edition in March 2005, AWE International has looked at the analytical processes used to monitor and assess the impact of industry on the environment. Articles are written by experts in their field, who cover topical issues from an environmental monitoring and analysis standpoint.
