Technology is certainly contributing and will continue to contribute to enable practical and innovative solutions for the benefit of the most urgent global environmental pollution demands and challenges.
Despite the diversity in terms of pollution of the different entities that make up the environment, we have seen how technology has been making efforts, for example, to reduce air pollution in the world's major cities.
In one of these technological efforts to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of large cities to try to provide less polluted air is to apply some technologies such as nanomaterials with the intention of reducing the production of concrete, especially considering that concrete is responsible for 3.4% of carbon dioxide generated on our planet.
While more researches are made referring to the production activities that contribute to more air pollution where there is a higher concentration of people like the big cities of the world, in that same disposition more contributions can be made within the technological field.
In the case of soil contamination, as in the case of oil spills, the possibility has been seen of using bacteria that feed on toxic waste, as for example when oil spills occur, the case of soil contamination is where science and technology meet to combine knowledge to combat the way in which this polluting action can be minimized.
Perhaps the forecasts for new technological advances are quite optimistic for the not too distant future, and we may see more solid contributions from technology to minimize the polluting effects on our planet's soil, air and water.
