The Kaiser Aluminum Plant smokestack, behind the Catholic church, belches dust and smoke over a residential area in the Chalmette section of New Orleans, LA. 
Date: March, 1973 
Photographer: John Messina 
EPA Control No.: NWDNS-412-DA-3560


Instructor:  David Leith 

Prerequisite, ENVR 416 (Aerosol Technology).  

This is an engineering design course.  The objective of the course is to discuss engineering aspects of industrial gas cleaning.  The emphasis in this course will be control of particulate pollutants although we will touch on gas removal processes as well. When you have finished the course, you should be able to design an effective control system or to evaluate a design that someone else gives you. 

The class meets Monday at 9 a.m. and Wednesday 8 to 10 a.m.  See the link under "Schedule" for details.  

3 credits. This course will not be taught again after 2011.
