Free Shipping No minimum order. The author's skill in the presentation of information combined with a lucid, unpretentious style only partly account for the pleasure the reviewer has had in reading his book. The control of air pollution is one of the principal areas of pollution controlalong with wastewater treatmentsolid-waste managementand hazardous-waste management. Although the author states that this book is intended for students of environmental engineering and science it deserves to be widely read by everyone interested in the complex dynamic inter-relationships between microorganisms and their environment.

Air pollution control. One interesting detail of the Japanese emissions standards was that they were introduced in a soft manner; that is, model year cars could be sold that did not meet the standards, but they would suffer various tax penalties. A typical filter Fig 5. Peter Eastwood has been associated with motor-vehicle pollution technology control for nearly thirty years, with posts in research and development. By themselves, however, cyclones are not sufficient to meet stringent air quality standards.

The primary focus of air pollution regulation in industrialized countries has been on protecting ambient, or outdoor, air quality. Personal information is secured with SSL technology. The harvesting of organisms grown on pollutants as a source of animal or even human food is discussed as a possible method of putting waste products to use. They are typically used as pre-cleaners and are followed by more efficient air-cleaning equipment such as electrostatic precipitators and baghouses described below. Mechanism of Action: The dust laden gas enters tangentially, receives a rotating motion and generates a centrifugal force due to which the particulates are thrown to the cyclone walls as the gas spirals upwards inside the cone i.

Control of air pollution book

For its ideas, interesting presentation of the facts of microbial life and the breadth of the subjects with which it deals, this book represents an outstanding introduction to the subject of environmental microbiology.

No knowledge of microbiology is assumed, but nevertheless a wide variety of situations in which microorganisms play a leading role are considered at a level which is high enough to hold the interest of any intelligent reader, whether professionally involved in environmental affairs or not.

The horizontal velocity of the gas stream is kept low less than 0. Free shipping for individuals worldwide Usually dispatched within 3 to 5 business days.

The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules About this book This book focuses on various aspects related to air pollution, including major sources of air pollution, measurement techniques, modeling studies and solution approaches to control.

Wet scrubbers are usually applied in the control of flammable or explosive dusts or mists from such sources as industrial and chemical processing facilities and hazardous-waste incinerators ; they can handle hot airstreams and sticky particles. Once collected, particulates adhere to each other, forming agglomerates that can readily be removed from the equipment and disposed of, usually in a landfill.

From inside the book. About the authors Nikhil Sharma received his M. The standards, based on European regulations were first introduced in Dirty air enters the chamber from a tangential direction at the outer wall of the device, forming a vortex as it swirls within the chamber.

Topics covered include chemical pollution of freshwater and marine environments, drinking water quality, water pollution biology, sewage and its treatment, toxic wastes, air pollution and atmospheric chemistry, control of pollutant emissions, land contamination, solid waste management, clean technologies, persistent organic pollutants in the environment, environmental radioactivity, health effects of environmental chemicals, legal control of pollution and integrated pollution control.

Inclusion of the chapter on carbon sequestration is quite beneficial. In the U. New material has been added to bring the text up to date on the latest regulations including the Clean Air Act Amendments of Nevertheless, only pollution caused by human activities, such as industry and transportation, is subject to mitigation and control.

In general, cyclone collectors are often used to control industrial dust emissions and as pre-cleaners for other kinds of collection devices. It also discusses several emission control techniques that will gain relevance in the future, when stricter emission norms will be enforced for international combustion IC engines as well as power plants.

The scope of the book ranges from the sources of pollutants and their environmental behaviour, to their effects on human and non-human receptors, to the technologies and strategies available for control. Cyclones are best at removing relatively coarse particulates.

The regulation designated a total of communities in the Tokyo, Saitama, Kanagawa, Osaka and Hyogo Prefectures as areas with significant air pollution due to nitrogen oxides emitted from motor vehicles. China enacted its first emissions controls on automobiles inequivalent to Euro I standards. The book also presents case studies on measuring air pollution in major urban areas, such as Delhi, India.

Because each air pollution control project is unique, it is usually not possible to decide in advance what the best type of particle-collection device or combination of devices will be; control systems must be designed on a case-by-case basis. See Article History Air pollution control, the techniques employed to reduce or eliminate the emission into the atmosphere of substances that can harm the environment or human health.

Turkey[ edit ] Diesel and gasoline sulphur content is regulated at 10ppm. The emphasis of this article is air pollution control technology as it is designed to remove particulate and gaseous pollutants from the emissions of stationary sources, including power plants and industrial facilities.

Another fascinating subject is the method of communication that exists between organisms by the use of chemicals that convey information.

Moreover, where available, equations for equipment cost estimation have been updated to the present time. The manuscript examines the collection and treatment of wastewater, sludge treatment and disposal, and nonpoint source water pollution.Fundamentals of Air Pollution Engineering by Richard C.

Air pollution control is a necessity to people’s lives. Without air pollution control, droughts could happen more often, resulting to the spread of diseases and more water sources would be required. More hurricanes may possibly occur in the future than the planet presently sees, and sea levels could rise.

Air pollution control

No attempt is made to cover air and water pollution, solid waste disposal or noise pollution in a rigorous way. Bharat stage emission standards are emission standards instituted by the Government of India to regulate the output of air pollutants from internal combustion engine equipment, including motor vehicles.

The standards and the timeline for implementation are set by the Central Pollution Control Board under the Ministry of Environment & Forests. Chapter Regulations of Air Pollution Control and Air Quality Management Boards Chapter 7.
