A special issue of International Journal of Environment and Waste Management
Atmospheric pollution is considered to be most dangerous pollutant of our ecosystem as it has direct influence over all living and nonliving things and its control by isolation and then cleaning becomes beyond man’s effort unless the pollutants are controlled at the source itself. A diverse variety of pollutants are emitted into the atmosphere by both natural, anthropogenic and industrial activities sources.
To control air pollution in chemical and allied process industries, wet scrubbing process plays a vital role to remove particulate and gaseous pollutants simultaneously. There are large varieties of wet scrubbers in use, the most important of which are spray towers and chambers, packed and plate columns, impingement type scrubbers, multi-stage bubble column, multi-jet column and the venturi scrubbers. These wet scrubbers used in practice to offer a choice between the liquid dispersed and gas dispersed systems. It is very important to incorporate design changes, modifications to enhance the efficiency of collection of air pollutants due to the stringent regulations in reasonably low energy dissipation.
Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to bring together research finding focusing research and development on air pollution abatement and control technologies with special reference to wet scrubbing processes and related areas.
Original research paper or reviews are invited in the following themes, which is not exhaustive:
- Air pollution control techniques
- Selection criteria of wet scrubbing techniques
- Wet scrubbing processes of air pollution control
- Design and hydrodynamics characteristics of air pollution control devices.
- Air pollution modelling
- Air pollution monitoring and EIA
- Dispersion of air pollutants
- Environmental effects of air pollutants
- Green technologies of air pollution prevention
- Air pollution control from stationary sources
- Case studies of air pollution control in chemical process plant
