  • State some harmful effects of air pollution
  • List the two conditions that must be satisfied before a substance can be said to cause pollution
  • List sources of air pollution
  • Name one way that air pollution is monitored
  • Name one unit used to measure pollutant concentrations in air
  • Describe one way to prevent particulates from getting into the air
  • Identify four devices that can be used to remove particulates from a stream of air or gases
  • Describe five methods to prevent air pollution from waste gases

This course explains how water pollution standards are expressed, what the standards are for certain pollutants, and where many pollutants come from. The course also discusses how industrial facilities keep their discharges of potential pollutants below the standards set for them and describes some of the techniques and types of equipment that industry uses to prevent the discharge of pollutants into the environment.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define the term “pollution.”
  • Describe how pollution is harmful.
  • Name one way in which air pollution is monitored and the units used for measuring air pollution concentration.
  • Describe the general methods used to prevent both particle and gaseous pollutants from entering the air.
  • List the methods used to remove particle and gaseous air pollution.
