Leading pollution control educators and practicing professionals describe how various combinations of different cutting-edge process systems can be arranged to solve air, noise, and thermal pollution problems. Each chapter discusses in detail a variety of process combinations, along with technical and economic evaluations, and presents explanations of the principles behind the designs, as well as numerous variant designs useful to practicing engineers. The emphasis throughout is on developing the necessary engineering solutions from fundamental principles of chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The authors also include extensive references, cost data, design methods, guidance on the installation and operation of various air pollution control process equipment and systems, and Best Available Technologies (BAT) for air thermal and noise pollution control.STANDARDS The Noise Control Act of 1972 became Public Law PL 92574 in October of that year. ... This noise-level goal forms the initial base of the long- range federal program designed to prevent the occurrence of noise levels ... surface transportation noise, (2) aircraft noise, (3) construction equipment and industrial noise, and (4) residential noise. ... Presently, industry is governed by noise regulations adopted by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), which setsanbsp;...
