Air Pollution Engineering Manual Air Pollution Engineering Manual by Wayne T. Davis (Editor), Air, Waste Management Association 

Partially underwritten by the Environmental Protection Agency, this manual provides industry and government professionals with the guidelines needed to comply with recent air pollution standards and regulations. Leading experts in air pollution control describe control equipment used for gases and particulates including operation, design principles, cost-effectiveness, and performance record. The authors explain the different processes that generate air pollutants as well as the types of emissions covering most of the industries affected by the Clean Air Act.

The definitive resource for information on air pollution emission sources and the technology available to control them.

The Air Pollution Engineering Manual has long been recognized as an important source of information on air pollution control issues for industries affected by the Clean Air Act and regulations in other countries. Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest emission factors and control measures for reducing air pollutants, this new edition provides industry and government professionals with the fundamental, technological, and regulatory information they need for compliance with the most recent air pollution standards. Contributing experts from diverse fields discuss the different processes that generate air pollution, equipment used with all types of gases and particulate matter, and emissions control for areas ranging from graphic arts and chemical processes to the metallurgical industry. More than 500 detailed flowcharts and photographs as well as an extensive listing of Internet resources accompany coverage of Biological air pollution control, including biofilters and bioscrubbers, emissions from wood processing, brick and ceramic product manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, numerous other industrial processes, fugitive emissions, internal combustion sources, and evaporative losses, water and wastewater treatment plant emissions, changes in emission factors for each source category, including particle size factors related to PM10 and PM2.5 standards, updated MACT regulations and technologies and much more.
