Book Description

September 1, 2010 157766678X 978-1577666783 4
A 25-year tradition of excellence is extended in the Fourth Edition of this highly regarded text. In clear, authoritative language, the authors discuss the philosophy and procedures for the design of air pollution control systems. Their objective is twofold: to present detailed information on air pollution and its control, and to provide formal design training for engineering students.

New to this edition is a comprehensive chapter on carbon dioxide control, perhaps the most critical emerging issue in the field. Emphasis is on methods to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the technologies for carbon capture and sequestration. An expanded discussion of control technologies for coal-fired power plants includes details on the capture of NOx and mercury emissions. All chapters have been revised to reflect the most recent information on U.S. air quality trends and standards. Moreover, where available, equations for equipment cost estimation have been updated to the present time. Abundant illustrations clarify the concepts presented, while numerous examples and end-of-chapter problems reinforce the design principles and provide opportunities for students to enhance their problem-solving skills.

Not-for-sale instructor resource material available to college and university faculty only; contact publisher directly.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Purchased for the Environmental Engineering PE Exam November 2, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great content March 4, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for PE exam November 4, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Ok June 1, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
