  • 1. An Assessment of Environmental Impact of Sugar Mills in District Rahim Yar Khan, Punjab, Pakistan.
  • 2. RYK. AT A GLANCE <ul><li>Bhong Mosque ( Sadiqabad, distt. R.Y.Khan) </li></ul>
  • 3. RYK. AT A GLANCE
  • 4. Introduction <ul><li>The exponential increase in population compelled man to increase industrialization. </li></ul><ul><li>On one hand industrialization has solved the needs and problems of human, but on the other hand it has created a gigantic problem of pollution. </li></ul><ul><li>In Pakistan, 77 Sugar mills constitute the second most important industry sharing 16% in agricultural economy. </li></ul><ul><li>Of these 38 are in punjab,32 in Sindh,6 in NWFP 1 in AK. </li></ul><ul><li>Sugar mills use various chemicals during processing which include Calcium Hydroxide, polyelectrolyte, limestone, phosphoric acid, sulphur dioxide, caustic soda, HCl and Lead sub acetate etc. </li></ul><ul><li>It is high time to keep an eye on our habitat and assess whether some sort of pollution is being caused by sugar industry or not. </li></ul>
  • 5. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES <ul><li>The study was structured to ascertain the impact of growing Sugar Industry on natural resources including soil and water. </li></ul>
