Taking Toxics Out of the Air
This online engineering PDH course describes what air toxics are, where they come from and how they can impact people and the environment. The course also discusses steps being taken by the EPA to reduce emissions of air toxics from major industrial sources.
Air toxics are those air pollutants that are know or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health problems. Each year, millions of tons of air toxics are released into the air. The Clean Air Act has provided the primary framework for protecting people and the environment from the harmful effects of air pollution.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to environmental engineers who are interested in understanding more about air toxics, where they com from and how they can impact people and the environment.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- What are toxic air pollutants
- Where do air toxics come from
- Where do air toxics go
- How are people exposed to air toxics
- What are the health effects of air toxics
- What has EPA done to reduce air toxics
- What progress has been made in reducing toxic air pollution
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the material contained in the EPA document "Taking Toxics Out of The Air", EPA Publication No. 452/k-00-002, August 2000.
