The totality of all that is human-made: technical devices and systems, cities, houses, roads and all that humans have constructed to keep them alive on the planet are called the technosphere. The technosphere though is a relatively new phenomenon is evolving extraordinarily rapidly and its mass has been estimated to approximate to 30 trillion tons. Currently the weight of all that man creates in a year is an order of magnitude greater than the mass of wild living organisms (biomass). Thus, our civilization faces very acute problems that require managing the technosphere to regulate the processes of its creation, interacting with the biosphere, solving the problems of recycling as it saves natural resources. The paper considers issues when it is inseparably linked with ecology, environment pollution as a technogenesis product is entering the environment and influencing human, biological components and engineering structures (e.g. destruction of buildings and underwater constructions). The authors also discuss the general principles for the development of the technosphere, as well as the ways to solve problems arising from its interaction with the biosphere.

Keywords: human-made, technosphere, biomass, natural resources, environment pollution
