            Estimating Costs of Air Pollution Control (Paperback)

            In these pages is all the information that you-manager, engineer, or other technical professional-would need to select, size, and estimate budget/study level capital and annual costs for a variety of air pollution control equipment. This equipment includes wet scrubbers, carbon a...dsorbers, and other add-on devices. This book also deals with such nonstack controls as wet dust suppression systems and flue gas desulfurization systems. The costs are current (1988 or 1989 dollars) and are mainly presented in equational form for ease of computerization and updating. Clear, comprehensive equipment sizing procedures are also detailed. Finally, several detailed example problems are included to illustrate the sizing and costing procedures. This book is not just for technical personnel, however. The material is easy to grasp and use. Anyone with an air pollution control background can follow and apply the procedures and data herein. Using this book, air pollution control professionals can now develop sound, defensible (within +/-30%) cost estimates with a minimum of time and effort.
