Air Pollution Control Management Training Course
The air pollution control management training course gives you an introductory view of all major, practical aspects of air pollution control.
The air pollution control management training is a multidisciplinary course consisting of science, technology, and regulatory aspects associated with the air pollution control.
The air pollution control management training course also helps you gain sufficient information on health and environmental effects of air pollution, air pollution meteorology, air quality management, ambient air quality monitoring, measurement and control of emissions, pollution prevention, laws and regulations, emission inventories, compliance and enforcement, and other related topics to effectively tackle air pollution related and impacted projects in the future.
Generally, air pollution occurs when harmful particulates enter the atmosphere and cause diseases, death, damages to animals and agricultural crops, or destroy the environment and nature. Air pollution can have a human- or natural-source. One good example of air pollution results is stratospheric ozone depletion, which is a great threat to all earth’s living organisms a long with ecosystem affects. While air pollution can have natural sources, indoor and urban air pollution are mostly anthropogenic, which have been reported by WHO as the cause of death of millions of people around the world. During the air pollution control management training course, our instructors will introduce you to different sources of air pollution and various types of air pollutants.
By definition, air pollutants are the components in the air that can affect humans’ health and the ecosystem. Such components can be in the form of solid particles, liquid drops, or gas molecules, originated from nature or human activities. There are two types of air pollutants: primary and secondary. Primary pollutants are directly emitted from a process, whereas secondary pollutants are the results of primary pollutants reactions or interactions in the atmosphere. And some of the pollutants belong to both categories, as they can be emitted directly and formed from other primary pollutants. Some of the main primary pollutants are sulfur oxides (Sox), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), toxic metals, ammonia, odors, and radioactive pollutants. Some of the major secondary pollutants include ground level ozone, smog, and proxyacetyl nitrate. In the air pollution control management training course, you will learn about both primary and secondary pollutants, their characteristics, how do they form, their source of origin, their effects on humans and ecosystem, and methods to control them.
Our modern and industrialized life style play a great role in causing air pollution and unfortunately it seems impossible to avoid most of it. However, controlling and managing the air quality is not only doable but also necessary. According to the EPA, a control strategy consists of a series of measures designed specifically to reduce air pollution. Such measurements vary by the origin source of the pollutant and the type of the targeted pollutant. Control strategies aim the measure to achieve the standard air quality. A control strategy also evaluates all the costs and benefits as well. Effective control strategies include three fundamental categories:
- Environmental factors, such as ambient air quality
- Engineering factors, such as performance of the control system
- Economic factors, such as capital and operating costs
Similar to all other types of control strategies, the first step is to have the officials consider pollution prevention seriously. Such preventive action include, but not limited to, elimination of pollution emissions at the source, replacing raw materials with non or less toxic materials, employing alternative manufacturing processes with less emission, and improving process control measurements. At TONEX, our instructors will train you how to develop the control strategies suitable for your manufacturer. We will explain all the factors you would need to consider in your control strategy and then how to tailor it based on your needs and budget.
