Cleaning Up Coal
Coal, which fueled the industrial revolution in the 19th century and two wars in the 20th, should continue to be a major power source well into the 21st century. Its abundance keeps the...

Emission Rate of Dimethyl Sulfide at the Atmospheric-Oceanic Interface and its Role in Global Climate Change

Technical Issues Related to Emission Releases from Subslab Radon Mitigation Systems
Surveys of government and private sector radon mitigation activities indicate that subslab radon mitigation systems account for more than 50 percent of all installed systems. Such systems...

Foam Over Troubled Toxics
Foams are now being used to control noxious vapor emissions from hazardous waste landfills. Another use of foams is in control of vapors emitted by chemical spills and fires. This article...

Garbage Management in Japan: Leading the Way
Excerpts from a book that details how land-poor Japan has less garbage problems than the land rich United States. Chapter Six, Incineration, is excerpted. In Japan, incineration is regarded...

The Political Science of Acid Rain
Emission control engineers must understand the politics and science of acid rain. Current research indicates that acid rain can be connected with lake acidification. But it can not be...

EPA Municipal Waste Combustion Activities
In many areas of the country, existing municipal waste landfills are reaching capacity. Land for new landfills or expansions is scarce and expensive, and municipalities would generally...
