Industrial waste is the contamination of the ecosystem by companies, specifically manufacturing plants, which dump waste stuff into the air and sea. Emissions from industrial waste are the main source of environmental pollution. The main intention of the research is to study the impact of industrial pollution on the emission of gases over a period of time in Manali, Chennai. This research also examines empirically if industrial emissions have created an impact on certain environmental factors. A total of 10 parameters have been considered in this research. Gases selected in this research are ammonia, nitric oxide, nitrogen oxides, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. The environmental factors considered in this study are Relative Humidity, Wind speed, wind direction, Solar Radiation, and Temperature. This research adopts only secondary data. Data has been collected for the period between 2013 and 2017. A Pearson correlation test was applied to the data collected. It was observed that there has been consistently an increase in the volume of emission of the gases ammonia and nitric oxide over the period between 2013 and 2017. Further relative humidity has also been impacted by the industrial pollution caused at Manali, Chennai. All the other factors were not significantly affected by industrial pollution.
