This course provides an overview of the different methods and technologies used to control the release of air pollutants from industrial sources. The different types of contaminants, their causes, and the regulations governing their release are discussed. The basic design principles of the various technologies, and their application, form the bulk of the course. A basic treatment of combustion and emissions including greenhouse gases is also covered.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
Discuss fundamental air pollution issues as they relate to: industrial processes; the types of air emissions; the health impact of the various air pollutants; and Canadian, US and international approaches to regulation.
Select the most appropriate air pollution control strategies, options, and selection criteria to enable sustainable pollution prevention planning.
Outline combustion processes/material balances including the material balances, ideal gas laws, psychometry, and energy balances necessary to calculate emissions.
Outline the application of the various methods of air pollution prevention and control including: gravitational settling and cyclonic particulate removal, filtration, electrostatic precipitation, gaseous and particulate scrubbing.
Discuss current and emergent air pollution control techniques for various pollutants.
Advocate industrial air pollution control options that are sustainable and effective in terms of energy consumption and multimedia impacts.
