Power generation in power plants has significant effects on the environment, with the combustion process producing air pollutants that can spread widely.
Nuclear power plants have the greatest potential for dangerous effects on the environment. An accidental error in the process of these power plants could lead to massive release of radionuclide particles. In contrast, water, solar and wind power plants have fewer effects on the environment. In addition to considering the environmental pollution caused by the construction and production of equipment related to renewable and non-renewable power plants, we can mention the many direct environmental pollution and effects caused by these power plants.
