Book Description

A concise yet comprehensive book that can be read and used from cover to cover, presenting topics that are fundamental for environmental engineering students, engineers, and professionals in the fields of air pollution control engineering and management. Air Pollution Control Engineering for Environmental Engineers covers topics including regulatory approaches to managing air pollution, emissions calculations, and control technologies for various air pollutants. This textbook also presents practical and contemporary issues, such as fugitive component leak detection and repair (LDAR). Subjects in the specifications of Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Professional Engineering (PE) exams are embedded in this book. Filled with real-world engineering design and calculation examples, the reader's understanding and common sense needed for air pollution control and management will be enhanced.


  • Provides well-digested practical information for both engineering students and engineering professionals in the fields of air pollution control engineering and management.
  • Written in a reader-friendly format for easy grasp of common sense needed for a successful engineering profession.
  • Covers subjects in the specifications of Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Professional Engineering (PE) exams relevant to air pollution control.
  • Includes practical and meaningful engineering design and calculation examples.
