Overview

  • Research has shown that inhaling fine particles is a greater health risk than breathing larger particles. Title is "very timely...needed NOW," according to one reviewer
  • Covers a "controversial" but important topic, for which there is a lack of literature and hence guidance for those professionals affected by it
  • Covers legislative background and gives insight into regulatory and technical matters such as measurement and control of fine particle emissions
  • Combines the practical, theoretical, and regulatory areas of fine particulate monitoring, with "reference to the regulated community"
  • Written by a recognized authority with over 30 years of pollution control experience
