Course Description

High ambient levels of ozone have caused new standards and requirements for most major sources of nitrogen oxides.

This course starts with a review of combustion technology and the types of combustion sources, followed by a discussion of methods to reduce NOx formation by combustion modification. The operation of proven and developing back end control technologies is presented together with a general review of NOx regulation. The course is targeted to air regulatory staff, but is also suited to environmental managers or environmental consultants from private industry.
