13.- ENVIRONMENT

The environment is a system formed by physical, chemical and biological elements that interact and are modified by natural, social and cultural human factors. It is not only the space in which life develops, it also includes living beings, objects, water, soil, air and relations between them. It is the environment that determines the way of life of society.

The environmental science studies the environment. Environmental engineering is an area and branch based on the design, application, and management of technological processes, products and services for the prevention, control and solution of environmental degradation problems, for the development of the sustainable use of natural resources in production and consumption processes, always taking as priority the excellent quality of life in our environment.

The importance of the environment lies in the fact that all forms of life take place in it and not elsewhere, so its care and preservation should be one of the essential elements of human action. Today there is a growing awareness of the relevance of these actions.

Due to the growing awareness of environmental problems, not only individuals but also governments and companies have started to develop activities that tend to preserve or limit the damage to the environment. Thus, some disciplines of the environmental science, such as hydrology, hydrogeology, water and gas treatment, recycling and pollution among others, have gained great importance.
