Pollution Control 2018 conference is organizing with the theme of “Promoting Global Health through Pollution Control and Sustainable Environment

ConferenceSeries Ltd organizes a conference series of 1000+ Global Events inclusive of 500+ Conferences, 700+ Upcoming and Previous Symposiums and Workshops in USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and publish 700+ Open access journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Pollution Control 2018 Conference is a forum to explore issues of mutual concern as well as exchange knowledge, share evidence and ideas, and generate solutions. The conference is all about promoting global health issues and advanced technologies used to control and regulate the pollution. This conference includes various types of pollutions, human impact on the environment, pollution risk assessment, advanced control methods.

The Conference brings together experts, researchers, scholars and students from all areas of Basic science, Chemical engineering, Earth and planetary sciences, Ecology, Environmental science, Environmental toxicology, Bioremediation and Public health, Occupational and industrial safety.

One of the major trends in the market is the development of new and improved air pollution control systems/equipment with enhanced reliability and reduced power consumption; for instance, development of an optimized wet process that has higher desulfurization efficiency and improved limestone injection.

According to the report, increased demand for power is one of the major factors driving the market. Coal-based power plants emit a large volume of harmful gases into the environment. This has created the need to install and adopt air pollution control equipment in plants. The analysts forecast the Global Air Pollution Control market to grow at a CAGR of 6.47% over the period 2014-2019.
