International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
Throughout the ages the surrounding environment has been intentionally or unintentionally polluted. Since the fire was discovered, the human used it for his own purposes such as: cooking, smelting metals, lighting, heating, burning forests, and other types of uses that pollute the environment.
