This is a thorough revision of the definitive, classic text for any level course on refrigeration, refrigeration and air conditioning, and environmental control in buildings. It is an equipment-oriented textbook that applies theoretical results of engineering theories to refrigeration and air conditioning engineering problems. This enables the student to understand both common and uncommon problems in designing, selecting and applying air conditioning and refrigeration components and systems.

This 1993 document entitled "Assessment of Sources of Air, Water, and Land Pollution: A Guide to Rapid Source Inventory Techniques" provides techniques for conducting source inventories in Chapter 2 and describes models for estimating air emissions under current controls in Chapter 3. Appendix II includes the United Nations (UN) classification of industries and services.
This book is written to serve as a reference handbook for the practicing engineer or
scientist who needs to prepare the basic process engineering and cost estimation
required for the design of an air pollution control system. The user of this book
should have a fundamental understanding of the factors resulting in air pollution
and a general knowledge of the techniques used for air pollution control.
Consumer concerns on food safety and society awareness of chemical contaminants
in the environment have increased in the past few years. As a consequence, more
restrictions in the use of chemical products have been imposed at national and
Pesticides are widely used for the control of weeds, diseases, and pests of
cultivated plants all over the world, mainly since after Second World War, with
the discovery of some organic compounds with good insecticide or herbicide
activity. At present, around 2.
Welcome to the
Air Pollution Control Equipment Selection Guide
The selection of air pollution control hardware can be a daunting task.
There are literally hundreds of equipment vendors offering a wide variety
of air pollution control technologies. If this book has one purpose, it is to
make that selection process easier.
In the following pages, we have labored to include the important
information required by people interested in air pollution control that can
be used in selecting the proper equipment for any air pollution control
Monitoring the environment for metals has become a topic of considerable importance, not only to
those industries emitting heavy metals but also to surveillance agencies and other organizations assessing
the impact of metals on the environment. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and easyto-
read text for anyone working in the environmental analytical chemistry arena and to provide
essential information to consultants and regulators about analytical and quality control procedures
helpful in their evaluation and decision-making procedures.

Indoor Environmental Quality
is the third in a series of books written by the
author over the past decade and focuses on environmental problems and
issues associated with our homes, office buildings, schools, and other nonindustrial
indoor environments. This book differs in several ways from the

Indoor Air Pollution Control
Definition, Diagnosis, and Mitigation
The most significant issues facing mankind today are related to the quality of our
environment. Past decisions did not always consider environmental factors as
critical elements. However, current decisions made daily should reflect the
importance of the environment. All environment-related issues are multidisciplinary,
ranging from science and engineering to social, economic, and regulatory
issues. Further, these issues are not related to any one region or country, but are
global in nature, requiring multidisciplinary, multiorganizational, and multinational
My interest in environmental pollution control microbiology began at MIT in
1948 when I realized that very little was known about this vital area of sanitary
engineering technology. I became a serious student of environmental pollution
control microbiology in 1950 when I began research on the microbiology and
the biochemistry of floe-forming bacteria in activated sludge. I must admit that
environmental pollution control microbiology has been my area of technical
specialization since 1950. It has been a most interesting experience that I have
The contents of this book are based loosely on presentations at a special symposium,
“Application of Interface Science to Environmental Pollution Control,”
held as part of the ACS National Meeting in Chicago, August 26–30, 2001. This
symposium offered an opportunity for researchers from a range of disciplines to
discuss the role of interface science in environmental remediation. The development
of an archival book based on this meeting is a timely contribution to a
burgeoning area of research that is now attracting the attention of a diverse research
Pest and disease management continues to be an important challenge to the
agricultural community. Confronted with the shifts in pest pressure and the rise in
new pest and crop problems, coupled with public concern over pesticide use and
more stringent environmental regulations, today’s crop producer must exhibit good
stewardship and stay current with new technologies in order to produce high-quality
crops in a profitable manner.
A preliminary study was carried out in mid 1999 on the status and potential impact of the introduction
of exotic fish species in the Mekong Basin. Introductions have been made for four main purposes:
aquaculture, stocking into lakes and reservoirs, pest control (mosquito) and the aquarium fish trade.
Introductions of exotic species and movements of large quantities of fish for stocking are accompanied
by risks to the environment, the possibility of native fish species declining through competition, predation
or genetic interference, and the possible spread of disease....
Environmental Land Use Planning brings together leading scholars in the field of environmental problem solving to examine environmental problems and effects on land uses; analytical methods and tools in the field; and the role of governments, community grants and tradable permits in environmental planning. The chapters are based on empirical research from countries around the globe including Canada, USA, China, Nigeria, Germany, Serbia, Venezuela, and Brazil.
In the early 1970s, the United States government identified and became
wary of hazardous materials in soil, surface water, groundwater, and building
structures. Most of these contaminants resulted from the evolution of
technology without the benefit of chemical regulatory controls. The cost for
cleanup of such sites was projected to exceed a trillion dollars, the burden
of which was to be borne by the taxpayer and responsible parties. The term
“responsible party” is a broad term but, in the final analysis, a responsible
party is usually a property owner....
Economists have long advocated pollution taxes as a policy to improve water quality.
One of the reasons water effluent taxes are embraced by economists interested in market-based
policies is that sources of water pollution are varied and difficult to assess individually in terms
of control costs. In principle, taxes overcome this problem. With a price—the tax—applied to
pollution emissions, firms compare the price to their costs of emissions control. If the price is
higher than control costs, they reduce emissions rather than pay the tax.
The last few years have witnessed tremendous changes in the syllabi of environmentally
related courses at Advanced Level and in tertiary education. Moreover, there have been
major alterations in the way degree and diploma courses are organised in colleges and
universities. Syllabus changes reflect the increasing interest in environmental issues,
their significance in a political context and their increasing relevance in everyday life.
