Overview

Packed with numerous new examples Fundamentals of Air Pollution, Fifth Edition provides a multidisciplinary approach to the various aspects of air pollution design and control. Updated to reflect the numerous changes in the regulations, new threats and new technologies to combat these threats, the 5th edition of this classic book features new sections on carbon sequestration and management of the nitrogen cycle. Other updates include numerous MACTs which were introduced in the 4ht edition, including 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. With this book, engineers find the ultimate mix of control actions and devices employed to achieve the allowable levels on an economic basis.

Meet the Author

Dan Vallero is an internationally recognized expert in the transport, chemical transformation and environmental fate of hazardous pollutants. His three decades of professional experience in hazardous waste engineering and management have included research, teaching and regulatory advice related to a wide range of human health risk and ecological issues, from global climate change to the release of hazardous products of incomplete combustion from waste incinerators to the assessment of the risks from exposures to environmental endocrine disruptors.
Dr. Vallero recently established the Engineering Ethics program at Duke University. This innovative program introduces students to the complex relationships between science, technology and societal demands on the engineer. The lessons learned from the cases in this book are a fundamental part of Duke’s preparation of its future engineers to address the ethical dilemmas likely to be encountered during the careers of the next generation engineers.
