  • Research has shown that inhaling fine particles is a greater health risk than breathing larger particles. Title is "very timely...needed NOW," according to one reviewer
  • Covers a "controversial" but important topic, for which there is a lack of literature and hence guidance for those professionals affected by it
  • Covers legislative background and gives insight into regulatory and technical matters such as measurement and control of fine particle emissions
  • Combines the practical, theoretical, and regulatory areas of fine particulate monitoring, with "reference to the regulated community"
  • Written by a recognized authority with over 30 years of pollution control experience

From the Back Cover:

Theory, practice, and regulation—all in one place!

Written by leading experts in the field of pollution control, this timely book brings together and carefully explains the latest information on particle control. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on fine particles, defined as those less than 2.5 microns.

Despite the fact that research indicates that fine particles pose a greater health risk than larger particles, the topic of fine particles is scarcely covered in the literature. Fortunately, professionals can now turn to this book for comprehensive coverage of fine particles, including:

  • Results from the latest studies examining their deleterious health effects

  • Methods for measuring their concentration in gas streams

  • Methods and costs for removing them from gas streams

  • The impact of collecting condensables

  • An overview of the most recent legislation and regulation

Helping readers make the best choices based on their specific needs, the authors review the fundamentals as well as the advantages and disadvantages of particulate control devices. Readers learn the importance of and how to evaluate fine particle removal efficiency, operation and maintenance, capital and operating costs for traditional and emerging technologies, and control device selection. In addition, readers gain a solid understanding of the risks associated with guaranteeing the performance of control devices.

For all your questions regarding fine particulate control, including practice, theory, and regulation, this book is the ideal starting point. References in each chapter guide you to additional information on individual topics should you need it.
