A report from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that industrial sewage has a “strong environmental impact,” which can cause an estimated 1,200 premature deaths per year and contribute $6.6 trillion to the global economy.
The study, which was released Tuesday, says that industrial wastewater, which includes manure, sewage sludge and industrial chemicals, is responsible for 2.4 million premature deaths each year, with the potential to affect another 1.5 million in the U:A large amount of waste from industrial processes such as steelmaking, plastics, pesticides, fertilizer and cement production is dumped into waterways.
The report also said that more than 1.2 billion pounds of industrial waste is released into waterways every year.
The EPA says that wastewater from industrial facilities and manufacturing processes releases about 30 percent of the carbon dioxide (CO2) that it absorbs, and that industrial waste releases more than half of the CO2 produced in the atmosphere.
The environmental impact of industrial sewage is also a concern for the environment because of its impact on the health of humans, animals, the environment and wildlife.
In its report, the EPA also notes that industrial pollution is not only harmful to humans, but it also causes pollution of groundwater and surface waters, which can be hazardous to aquatic life.
The EPA estimates that the total CO2 released by sewage slurry and industrial products in the United States each year is about 1.1 billion pounds, and a major portion of that CO2 is generated from the sewage slop and other waste products.
The report, which is based on research from the EPA’s Office of Science and Technology Policy and its Working Group on Wastewater and Wastewater Treatment, also says that the EPA is working to improve its understanding of wastewater production and use and the environmental impact associated with industrial wastewater.
According to the report, a significant portion of industrial wastewater comes from the construction of oil and gas pipelines and wastewater treatment plants.
The wastewater is then pumped into surface water treatment facilities.
The waste is transported to the refinery, where it is used to produce a wide variety of products.
The majority of industrial wastes in the country are from the manufacturing of chemicals and plastics.
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), which collects the chemical and other pollutants emitted by factories, is the primary method used to dispose of wastewater and industrial waste, the report says.
The system has identified more than 3,000 wastewater treatment facilities across the country.
