Engineers in multiple disciplines—environmental, chemical, civil, and mechanical—contribute to our understanding of air pollution control. To that end, Noel de Nevers has incorporated these multiple perspectives into an engaging and accessible overview of the subject. While based on the fundamentals of chemical engineering, the book is accessible to any reader with only one year of college chemistry. In addition to detailed discussions of individual air pollutants and the theory and practice of air pollution control devices, de Nevers devotes seven chapters to topics that influence device selection and design, such as atmospheric models and U.S. air pollution law. The Third Edition’s many in-text examples and end-of-chapter problems provide a more complex treatment of the concepts presented. Significant updates include more discussion on the problem of greenhouse gas emissions and a thorough look at the Volkswagen diesel-emission scandal.

Air Pollution, Third Edition, Volume IV: Engineering Control of Air Pollution focuses on the sampling, measurement, analysis, and monitoring of air pollution. This book discusses the various gas and air cleaning devices used to eliminate or reduce emissions of air polluting substances. Organized into three parts encompassing 21 chapters, this edition starts with an overview of the methods of air pollution control that are designed to minimize the production or emission of contaminants. This book then discusses the techniques of rational air use management, which is based on the principle that air quality standards have been set at levels that protect the population from harm with an acceptable margin of safety. This text explores as well the waste-disposal process of incineration in which combustible wastes are burned completely under controlled conditions. Other chapters discuss the production of nonferrous metals, which has been very significant in the development of the science of air pollution control. Engineers, physicist, chemists, meteorologists, agronomists, toxicologists, sociologists, physicians, and lawyers will find this book extremely useful.

Fundamentals of Air Pollution is an important and widely used textbook in the environmental science and engineering community. Written shortly after the passage of the seminal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the third edition was quite timely. Surprisingly, the text has remained relevant for university professors, engineers, scientists, policy makers and students up to recent years. However, in light of the transition in the last five years from predominantly technology-based standards (maximum achievable control technologies or MACTs) to risk-based regulations and air quality standards, the text must be updated significantly. The fourth edition will be updated to include numerous MACTs which were not foreseen during the writing of the third edition, such as secondary lead (Pb) smelting, petroleum refining, aerospace manufacturing, marine vessel loading, ship building, printing and publishing, elastomer production, offsite waste operations, and polyethylene terephthalate polymer and styrene-based thermoplastic polymers production. * Focuses on the process of risk assessment, management and communication, the key to the study of air pollution. * Provides the latest information on the technological breakthroughs in environmental engineering since last edition * Updated information on computational and diagnostic and operational tools that have emerged in recent years.

This text covers the whole air pollution field, from an engineering perspective. The principal topics are control devices and their theory. The book uses many more examples than other texts to help the student see the magnitudes of important quantities and to show and practice the practical application of theoretical treatments presented. The other half is devoted to topics that form some of the background for the selection of such devices, i.e., air pollution effects, the structure of U.S. air pollution law, atmospheric models, etc.
