Pollution prevention is following practices and steps that will reduce and/or eliminate chances of pollution taking place and pollution control means taking corrective measures to reduce pollution already done in the environment like waste management etc. By using waste treatment system/plant etc. Hope you got it.

Pollution prevention is stopping it before it happens; pollution control is managing the damage that's been done.

Pollution prevention is trying to stop the pollution the companies are producing under the pollution controls already set in place to eliminate excess pollution produced by them.would be my guess.

G'day Hildadrago,

Thank you for your question.

I would think that pollution prevention aims to stop the pollution before it occurs while control seeks to  reduce its impact once it occurs.
