Let us know that the gas leak incident in Andhra Pradesh on May 7 in the factory named LG POLYMER in Visakhapatnam shook the nation. Red and orange zones in Andhra Pradesh are quite large industries in the declared areas. These industries release large quantities of liquid waste, hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste and air pollutants (air pollutants). These industries also produce various types of waste like e-waste. Special attention needs to be given in this regard.
