The number-one environmental threat to public health, air pollution remains a pressing problem-made even more complicated by the massive quantity and diversity of air pollution sources.
Biofiltration technology (using micro-organisms growing on porous media) is being recognized as one of the most advantageous means to convert pollutants to harmless products. Done properly, biofiltration works at a reasonable cost-utilizing inexpensive components, without requiring fuel or generating hazardous by-products.
Firmly established in Europe, biofiltration techniques are being increasingly applied in North America: Biofiltration for Air Pollution Control offers the necessary knowledge to "do it right."

Provides a comprehensive survey of biofiltration technology
Details the biofilter design and operation concepts used by engineers, consultants, researchers, policy makers, and general scientists
Conveys a basic understanding of how biofiltration works by means of contaminant adsorption and biodegradation
Includes otherwise hard-to-find information on the economics of choosing among various biofiltration systems, including details on important designs used in the field
