Environment and environmental conservation are among the most important global issues that everyone is concerned with, as the ecosystem is the ocean all living creatures live in, if it’s ever destroyed, we will be destroyed too. The relationship between the ecosystem and industry is a tensioned one; and that’s why the decision takers and those with authority aspire to make it a better relationship.
The impact of industry on the ecosystem
We can say the industrial revolution is the beginning of the industrial era and the spreading of its concept, and despite the great impact of the industrial revolution on human lives, and its reach to welfare and meeting human needs with less effort, it still caused an enormous harm to the ecosystem, which threatened the lives of many living creatures due to the destruction of agricultural land, many forests, in addition to destroyed industrial wastes, have been destroyed by solid residues such as dust particles or slag from coal, liquid wastes from various processes such as radioactive refrigerants from power plants and gas residues that are largely the result of chemical industries, causing pollution of soil, air, sea and oceans, which caused a disruption of the ecosystem.
Definition of Environmentally Friendly Industry
After societies were aware of the damage to the environment and the extent of the danger faced by mankind, the concept of eco-friendly industry emerged. In the 1990s, by author John Botton, which included his vision of an ecological city with environmental management and techniques as well, and environmental designs were closely linked to the multi-disciplinary environmental industries.
The environment-friendly industry is defined as industries with a significant role and influence in reducing the destructive factors of the environment by relying on materials used in the manufacturing process, which can be re-analyzed and manufactured by integrating them with a number of life processes. These industries play an important role in preserving To the environment around us. It also helps in the process of linking green architecture, which is a design process for buildings in an environmentally friendly manner with sustainable agriculture, environmental engineering and other related fields.
Models of environmentally friendly industries
-The first environmentally friendly computer in the world, manufactured in Dublin, Ireland, is named IAMCO.
- Making tens of thousands of environmentally friendly cars, both on the hybrid and electric systems, which shows the eagerness of many people to acquire everything that is environmentally friendly.
- Most countries in the world use solar energy as an alternative to electricity, through the manufacture of solar panels that have the ability to use the sun's energy and convert it into electrical energy.
Environmentally friendly industries are more beneficial to our environment. Greenhouse gas emissions, which increase global temperatures, reduce the presence of waste in all its forms (liquid and solid) in the surrounding environment, which is the first polluter of rivers, seas and soil.
Contributions to environmentally friendly industries
Many workshops are held in different countries around the world on the subject of environmentally friendly industries by experts specialized in this field in order to find industries that do a better job in the surrounding environment. During these workshops, the exchange of information between institutions, centers and associations concerned, There are also channels of communication aimed at documenting efforts for the better, in addition to the import and export of these industries in order to keep pace with environmental specifications.
