Steps taken to solve Environmental Problems Which Have Resulted From the Establishment of Industries in Germany




  • Undertaking massive reafforestation programmes/green belts creation in areas where forests had been cleared to restore soil fertility and solve climatic problems like global warming.
  • There is encouragement of raw material and labour saving technology to solve problems of limited/exhaustion of minerals and labour scarcity.
  • There is importation of raw materials and labour scarcity.
  • There is importation of raw materials e.g. iron ore from France and Sweden to solve the problem of limited raw materials.
  • Diversification of the economy to reduce over dependence on industries/creation of alternative source of income.
  • They have adopted treatment of industrial wastes before disposal to control land and water pollution.
  • Use of alternative source of energy especially oil and natural gas which do not produce smoke to solve problems of atmospheric pollution through industrial smoke.




  • They have vertical expansion/building skyscrapers to solve the problem of limited land for industrial expansion.
  • There is construction of subways/underground tunnels to reduce problems of traffic congestion.
