Point Sources of Pollution: Local Effects and their Control is a component of Encyclopedia of Environmental and Ecological Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Point sources of pollution are the major causes of degradation of ecosystems, and may have significant effects on human health if they are not properly controlled. They can be classified in terms of sources, the discharged media, and the pollutants themselves. Broadly speaking, the sources include municipal and industrial sector activities, and the media include water, air, and solids. Noise is also an important form of pollution. Pollutant compositions from point sources can be vast, varied, and complex, and can vary between different countries and regions. The Theme discusses matters of great relevance to our world such as: Vehicular Emissions; Industrial Pollution; Domestic Pollution; Environmental Pollutants and Their Control; Technologies for Air Pollution Control; and Technologies for Water Pollution Control. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Qian Yi is one of the best known environmental scientists and educators in China. Ms Qian graduated from the Sanitary Engineering Department of Tongji University, Shanghai, and then obtained her masters degree at Tsinghua University. After graduation, she has been engaged in education at Tsinghua University as a professor. She is a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and a member of the Committee for Environmental and Resource Protection, The National People’s Congress. She serves as one of the vice-presidents of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), and is a member of the Executive Board of the International Council of Science Unions (ICSU). Professor Qian has actively been engaged in the implementation of cleaner production and pollution source control strategies in China.
