Air pollution control can be approached from a number of different engineering disciplines environmental, chemical, civil, and mechanical. To that end, Noel de Nevers has written an engaging overview of the subject. While based on the fundamentals of chemical engineering, the treatment is accessible to readers with only one year of college chemistry. In addition to discussions of individual air pollutants and the theory and practice of air pollution control devices, de Nevers devotes about half the book to topics that influence device selection and design, such as atmospheric models and U.S. air pollution law. The generous number of end-of-chapter problems are designed to develop more complex thinking about the concepts presented and integrate them with readers personal experienceincreasing the likelihood of deeper understanding.It may be of value as a reference work to engineers who are professionally active in air pollution control, but they will probably find the ... I have also tried to base it as completely as possible on the basic chemical engineering disciplines of stoichiometry, thermodynamics, fluid ... any interested chemical engineering faculty member can teach a senior level course using the book (and the solutions manual)anbsp;...
