This course is intended to provide students with a basic understanding of air pollution.  Students will develop an awareness of the sources of air pollution, the range of contaminants that are emitted, and the impacts of air pollution on environment, human health and society.  Legislative requirements, with emphasis on Ontario legislation, will be presented, with a focus on how the requirements impact the industrial sector and drive pollution reduction initiatives.  Students will learn about the technology that is available to monitor and quantify air pollution levels, as well as the technology that is utilized to reduce dischargers into the air. Common sampling techniques will be taught for both ambient and particulate contaminates.
