The number-one environmental threat to public health, air pollution remains a pressing problem-made even more complicated by the massive quantity and diversity of air pollution sources.Biofiltration technology (using micro-organisms growing on porous media) is being recognized as one of the most advantageous means to convert pollutants to harmless products. Done properly, biofiltration works at a reasonable cost-utilizing inexpensive components, without requiring fuel or generating hazardous by-products.Firmly established in Europe, biofiltration techniques are being increasingly applied in North America: Biofiltration for Air Pollution Control offers the necessary knowledge to "do it right.

* Provides a comprehensive survey of biofiltration technologyDetails the biofilter design and operation concepts used by engineers, consultants, researchers, policy makers, and general scientists
* Conveys a basic understanding of how biofiltration works by means of contaminant adsorption and biodegradation
* Includes otherwise hard-to-find information on the economics of choosing among various biofiltration systems, including details on important designs used in the field

Reviews of Biofiltration for Air Pollution Control:

"Devinny and colleagues do a good job of explaining how the same microbial metabolic reactions can be used to treat contaminated air. They have done a thoughtful job of distilling recent (mostly 1994-98) publications on biofiltration by themselves and others into a very readable work."-CHOICE, April 1999 "Designed to help practitioners 'do it right', this book provides a comprehensive survey of biofiltration technology and conveys a basic understanding of how biofiltration works..."-Environmental Science & Technology, May 1999
