Topics covered in the booklet are: the law; control methods; control equipment for particulates; control equipment for gases; air pollution control in a steam power plant; improving electricity generation; alternate energy sources; and the cost of meeting federal control standards. Diagrams are included to support discussion of processes and equipment. A glossary of terms common to air pollution control may be found at the end of the booklet. (RE)
