Abstract – This paper presents an overview of air pollution and its control treatment measure it is basically the foreign material in the air can be man made or occur naturally, and concentrated where people are concentrated. The overall existing technologies or operation in them, change of used fuels, and the control equipment use between the source point and the point of emission in atmosphere. The acceptable solution is the transformation of the insulated pollution into less harmful one with the possibilities of using the new material. Pollution is injurious to health and its prevention places an economics burden on the citizen. Further emission reductions from automobiles, and transportation measures and program will be more difficult to accomplish, but the challenge has been presented. Government, authorities and industry have been at the forefront to tackle air pollution with the help of policy reformation and technology innovation in different jurisdictions. We emphasize on prominent Indian company active in air pollution control measure dewy innovative technology business and R&D practices. Paper highlights various countries on the priority list of industry technologies for protection for air pollution control adopted under Indian criterion is also suggested. Many forms of atmospheric pollution affect human health and the environment at levels from local to global. These contaminants are emitted from diverse sources, and some of them react together to form new compounds in the air. Industrialized nations have made important progress toward controlling some pollutants in recent decades, but air quality is much worse in many developing countries, and global circulation patterns can transport some types of pollution rapidly around the world.
