The world is faced with an impending and serious crisis: the complete exhaustion of its natural resource reserves and environmental pollution. The production and poor management of industrial waste destroys the natural ecosystem, while uncontrolled use of resources portends a shortage crisis. The possibility of such an occasion spells doom to the global economy and unprecedented human health risks. It is a catastrophe that is waiting to happen if no mitigation measures are taken in time. The problem is compounded by a rapidly increasing human population that creates pressure on available resources and accelerates the rate of waste production.
