Sources and Measurements of Air Pollutants

Sources and Measurements of Air Pollutants
Note: This PDH course is a recorded video presentation. It is also offered as a live interactive webinar.
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH video presentation provides information on the different types of air emission sources and how to estimate the rate leaving these sources and entering the atmosphere. It describes the four major approaches to estimating air emissions along with their advantages and disadvantages. It addresses the factors and information necessary to determine whether each approach will work in terms of estimating emissions fairly accurately.


There are various locations, activities or factors which are responsible for releasing pollutants into the atmosphere. These sources can be classified into two major categories: stationary sources and mobile sources. Air pollutant emission factors are representative values that are usually expressed as the weight of pollutant divided by a unit weight, volume, distance, or duration of the activity emitting the pollutant (e.g., kilograms of particulate emitted per ton of coal burned). Such factors facilitate estimation of emissions from various sources of air pollution.


This 2 PDH online video presentation is intended primarily for chemical, energy and environmental engineers involved with the compliance of air quality regulations and permits and the implementation of air pollution minimization programs.
