Air Pollution Control Solutions - Clean Technologies

Heightened awareness of air pollution has led to ever more stringent environmental legislation both nationally and globally. Emissions from industrial processes such as sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates are strictly limited by regulation to prevent harm to human health, the formation of smog and acid rain, as well as tropospheric ozone.
