    Industrial Pollution as a subject is very broad, dozens of subjects, each worth a PhD thesis or two. So would it going to be thousends of pages or a very shallow approach or would you narrow down the subject.

    A few tips. You may try and do a scholar google search:

    http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=industrial+pollution&hl=en&lr=&btnG=Search

    Or go for PDF's only, which are predominantly serious publications:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=filetype:pdf+industrial+pollution&btnG=Google+Search

    Also, there may be more expertise on this in the chemical section.
