A Study on Attitude of Fireworks Manufacturers in Sivakasi Towards Eco-friendly Fireworks
Author:T. Palaneeswaria*, C. Muthulakshmib
Abstract:
Sivakasi is known throughout the world for fireworks production. Low rain fall and a dry climate prevailing in this area contribute to unabated fireworks production. Sivakasi supplies firecrackers and sparkers for all important ceremonies. For the color effect of fireworks, toxic heavy metals like barium, aluminum, lead, mercury salts, antimony, copper, and strontium can be used in firework compositions. The smoke from fireworks consists mainly of fine toxic dusts that can easily enter the lungs. They are more harmful to the society as they pollute our environment which affects the infants, children, pregnant women, patients and senior citizens. Fireworks fallout can contaminate water supplies and residue on the ground can be carried away by rain and end up in our lakes, rivers, or oceans. The noise from fireworks exceeds 140 decibels that scares pets and wildlife like birds, animals etc. For a long time, these consequences were not considered. Now-a-days modern developments in pyrotechnics are aimed at the use of nitrogen-rich compounds that burn cleaner and produce less smoke. These environmentally friendly fireworks could also offer better color quality and intensity than traditional fireworks. Keep in mind the responsibility towards the society, the fireworks manufacturers would adopt their production strategy towards eco-friendly fireworks. This study covers the awareness, acceptability and adaptability of eco-friendly fireworks among fireworks owners in Sivakasi.
Keywords:Key words: conventional fireworks, eco-friendly fireworks, pyrotechnics, firework compositions, multiple chemical sensitivity.
