About this book

Due to the threat of a possible global climate change and the greenhouse effect caused by constituents of anthropogenic origin in the atmosphere, air quality has become a major environmental issue. As a consequence, atmospheric emissions need to be monitored and controlled. This monograph presents technologies for emission control and analysis from industrial and energy plants. The author explains the physical and chemical bases before proceeding to the practical performance techniques. The publication provides the reader with the knowledge necessary to critically analyze and investigate emission measurement techniques.


Origin of Emissions.- Determination of Mass Concentration of Particulate Material.- Determination of Mass Particle Size Distribution.- Determination of Metal Emissions.- Measurement of Gaseous Emissions.- Optical Spectroscopy in Emission Measurements.- Other Measurement Technologies.- Analysis Methods.- Economics of Emission Measurement and Control.
