Outline of lecture

For atmospheric environmental protection, appropriate combination of various technologies ranging from combustion control, exhaust gas treatment, high efficiency energy conversion and waste management is essential. This lecture first explains the fundamental science of transport phenomena (momentum, energy and mass transportation) which should be base knowledge to understand various atmospheric environmental processes. Then variety of emission control techniques are explained to understand state of the art technologies for atmospheric environmental protection. Finally, new waste management technologies are introduced and students will join discussions on the effective measures for waste management to reduce atmospheric emissions.

Purpose of lecture

For atmospheric environmental protection, appropriate combination of various technologies ranging from combustion control, exhaust gas treatment, high efficiency energy conversion and waste management is essential. This lecture is first aims at explaining the fundamental science of transport phenomena (momentum, energy and mass transportation) which should be base knowledge to understand various atmospheric environmental processes. Then variety of emission control techniques are explained to understand state of the art technologies for atmospheric environmental protection especially for the waste incineration process. Finally, non-incineration based new waste management technologies are introduced and students will join discussions on the effective measures for waste management in their home countries to have better understanding of the situation in each country.

Comments from lecturer

This lecture starts with the fundamentals of the atmospheric environmental engineering. So the students who are not familiar with the contents of the lecture are welcome. The students will be well trained through exercize reports and the presentation not only in the area of the subject matter of the lecture but also in English. So the Japanese students who wish to bush up their English abilities are welcome.
