Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"I loved the previous edition, and this edition is even better. The addition of the CO2 chapter is excellent." -- Marko Princevac, University of California, Riverside

"This is a classic textbook. I have used the second, third, and now the fourth editions over the past fifteen years. I like the detailed coverage of critical control technologies and its application to real-world solutions. Students prefer the textbook for its problem-solving approaches and rigorous worked examples." -- John Kuruvilla, University of North Texas

"One of the best books in air pollution." -- Shekar Viswanathan, San Diego State University

"This new edition is a timely publication of emerging topics such as CO2 control and indoor air quality." -- Chang-Yu Wu, University of Florida

"I liked the third edition, so I am very much pleased with the fourth. Inclusion of the chapter on carbon sequestration is quite beneficial. My thanks to the authors!" -- Stephen Zemba, Tufts University

This book was suggested to me by several people in my Environmental Engineering PE Prep course. I begrudgingly purchased it and it was very, very helpful on several PE exam questions. The sections on Baghouses, Cyclones, and ESPs have more depth than the Lindeburg Environmental PE book. I recommend it if you are taking the Environmental Engineering PE.

I purchased this book for my son's college class in air pollution. I thought the content was excellent, and the presentation was pretty good. Difficult concepts are easy to follow, and an abundance of examples are presented. This class could potentially be very difficult, but this book really helped.

If this is required for your class, then you don't really have a choice. The solution manual is out there if you can find it. I didn't have it for my class but given the homework scores were near perfect for more than half the class and the questions are difficult, you kinda just know. If you're using this as a desk reference or want to learn about air pollution, I would think there is something better out there. It's not very well written and the examples aren't great. It did have some great tables and good references but that's really about it.

Good basic manual for industrial air pollution control. However, this classic book is starting to fall behind as technology in air pollution control advances. Cooper Alley sticks with only the most very fundamental aspects of pollution control. Overall a good manual for the student or engineer, but if you are looking for an introduction to a broad range of controls, a web search might provide better results.

With 40 years of experience as a chemical engineer I wanted a good text on APC control. This one was highly rated. I find it useful for my work and agree with the high ratings. The seller (Dana4022) was also timely and accurate - book's condition was better than rated and delivered in 2 days (standard shipping)!

A bit of history on each air pollution technology. The relevant equations, examples and problems. Seems like a pretty good primer to the field.

Very light on theory. Our instructor relies on EPA materials and papers from 1938 to compensate.

This book is essential for the PE exam. The answers for a lot of the air-related questions on the PE exam can be found in this book. Make sure you go through this book and highlight and/or tag information you think will help you out in the exam.

Thorough coverage of all major topics. Arrived in excellent condition, although binding has started to separate at one place, allowing pages to slip out. Overall, satisfied customer.
