This course focuses on the rapidly developing new technology for the control of pollutants. It therefore provides very detailed discussion on such topics as source and emission controls. The course will draw attention to the following subjects: particulate and gas controls for stationary and mobile sources of air quality, and water treatment. The only effective way to prevent air pollution is to prevent the release of pollutants at the source.
