course is an introduction to technologies for air pollution and its control. It
contains information on the effects of air pollution on humans and the
environment, and the sources of air pollution. Special focus is placed on
control technologies of the solid or gaseous air pollutants. The students will
have detailed information about the design of control technologies as well as
the properties and nature of particulate matter. Particulate matter control
technologies such as electrostatic precipitators, fabric filters, cyclones and
settling chambers will be discussed. In addition, the general concepts of
gaseous pollutants and information on technologies necessary for the control of
gaseous pollutants like wet scrubbers for the control of sulfur oxides will also be discussed.
