Abstract:

In this research study on thermal pollution, we first studied the causes of this form of pollution, then used the parameter of thermal pollution which is the temperature difference in order to evaluate it. We have highlighted the adverse effects of pollution on the thermal power plants on one hand and other hand on the surrounding environment (people and beaches). We also attempted to assess its financial impact on facilities and environment; indeed Senelec loses more than 5 377 600 dollars during seven months and causes financial losses of about 4000 dollars by killing 10 tonnes of small fish and five tonnes of mussels. We have proposed solutions after diagnosis with particular emphasis on good policy of water treatment and close monitoring to maintain the facilities and respect environmental standards set by international bodies. We finally gave recommendations that can be used both for increasing the production efficiency and for respecting the environmental standards.
