Exhausts or emission from industries/automobiles/indoor appliances is one of the most prominent sources of air pollution. Innumerable noxious gases have been identified and been recurrently treated through various technologies from past many decades. Cumulative studies suggest that air pollutants affect the respiratory and cardiovascular systems along with the central nervous system, may it be directly or indirectly. In particular, acquaintances to such air pollutants in early life can lead to developmental delays and may stunt neurological development. This review presents the recent technologies that have been tested at the laboratory level as well as in situ utilizing one of the abundantly available industrial wastes, i.e. red mud. Unlike the conventional expensive catalysts, red mud provides a cheaper alternative in the treatment of toxic exhaust gases from various sources. Furthermore, the review identifies the gap through which experts from other disciplines can explore the employment of red mud in the comprehensive spectrum of pollution control. © 2023, The Author(s).
