This paper concerns the sudden surge and growing awareness of environmental problems in Brazil in both the natural and industrial areas.
World leaders gathered in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 for the First International Environmental Conference and went home with good intentions.
Five years later, representatives of many of those leaders returned to admit that very little had happened in terms of a worldwide clean-up and most nations were still accusing each other of non-compliance with the aims set out five years earlier.
In Brazil, however, something has been happening on the environmental scene and it has been driven as much by public opinion and industrial ownership as by the implementation of government legislation.
This is presenting a new challenge to the local engineering profession where there is little experience in pollution clean-up, and to the environmental industry which has neither the technology nor the skills which are available in developed countries.
