The Sources of Air Pollution and Their Control.
National Air Pollution Control Administration (DHEW), Arlington, VA.
The problems of air pollution and its control are discussed. Major consideration is given the sources of pollution - motor vehicles, industry, power plants, space heating, and refuse disposal. Annual emission levels of five principle pollutants - carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter - are listed for each source. A short description of the control of stationary sources of pollution is also provided. The point is made that we have available today the technological means of controlling most sources of air pollution, but are not applying that technology in adequate measure. (BL)
