Course on Air Pollution Control Technologies @ JNTUH College of Engineering, Hyderabad [Oct 8-12]: Registrations open

About the Course

Ambient air pollution is a serious issue in India, particularly in North India. Several gaseous and particulate pollutants are emitted in to the atmosphere from stationary and non-stationary sources. Stationary sources include coal fired power plants, petroleum refineries, lime kilns, metal smelters, and cement kilns. Generally, the emission control technologies will be based on the principles of absorption, adsorption, thermal and catalytic incineration.

This course will introduce the attendees to the basic principles of control technologies for key pollutants of concern which include gaseous criteria pollutants, hazardous organic compounds, and particulate matter. The course will also include two field trips to the local industries to provide students the opportunity to observe the emission control technologies utilized.

Main Topics

• Over view of air pollution control technologies.
• Methods for controlling NOx emissions.
• Over view of particulate matter control techniques.
• Over view of VOC control technologies.
