This practical book is valuable for a diversity of applications in both air and water pollution. Adsorption Technology usually deals with control of organic compounds, such as VOCs, pesticides, phenolics, and complex synthetic organics. However, it is also used to control certain inorganic compounds such as heavy metals, reduced sulfur gases, and chlorine. Much original work, including original figures.
