The first comprehensive volume on the major aspects of environmental catalysis. Focuses on NO[x removal, mobile engine emission controls, power plant emissions, control of volatile organic compounds, SO[x emissions, and waste minimization. Overview chapters introduce each section and provide added perspective and coverage. Includes comprehensive technical reports on automotive and diesel emission control catalysis, NO[x removal, and removal of chlorinated hydrocarbons from various process streams.

Editorial Reviews

Explores catalytic processes to combat air pollution, such as removing nitrogen-oxygen compounds; controlling emissions from mobile engines and power plants; and dealing with future fuels, such as gasoline-sulfur mixes, and volatile organic compounds. The 34 papers are a selection of those presented to a symposium in Denver, March to April 1993. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
