On Order



The first comprehensive volume on the major aspects of environmental catalysis. Focuses on NOx removal, mobile engine emission controls, power plant emissions, control of volatile organic compounds, SOx emissions, and waste minimization. Overview chapters introduce each section and provideadded perspective and coverage. Includes comprehensive technical reports on automotive and diesel emission control catalysis, NOx removal, and removal of chlorinated hydrocarbons from various process streams.
