INTRODUCTION:Living in the 21stcentury, it demands us to equip ourselves with the skills andknowledge needed to face the challenges of the century. Thus, in this assignment, theobjective is for us to enhance our skills and knowledge relevant to cope with thosechallenges. One of the prevailing issues that require our concern is the sustainability of theenvironment.

As our living standard rises, more industries are built to fulfil our
