The increase in anthropogenic activities has had a detrimental effect on the environment. Furthermore, these consequences of these effects linger in the environment, causing more harm and havoc. The burning of fossil fuels is one such activity that has a noticeable effect on the quality of air. Agricultural practices also contribute to air pollution. Fumes from the fertilizers, especially ammonia enter the atmosphere and form particulates. The industrial activities are the next major source of air pollution. They majorly arise from combusting of fuel, natural gas as well as exhaust emissions of various processes.
