Director/Professor

Prof. Andrzej G. Chmielewski, Ph.D., D.Sc., is a director of the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, Warsaw, Poland and a professor at the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology. In the years of 1976/77 he was employed by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA and in 2003/05 by IAEA, Vienna, Austria, then lectured at the universities in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Hefei, China and Pavia, Italy. As an UN expert undertook missions to over thirty countries all over the world. He is a member of Academy of Engineering and in the year 1999 was nominated a “Gold Engineer of the Year” by the Polish Federation of Engineering Associations and is laurate of \"Liftime Award for Science\" granted by International Irradiator Association at 17 IMRP in Shanghai, China.. He is an author of more than 150 publications and books, and over 60 international patents, some of this inventions were the bases for construction of the big installations for air and water pollution control built in industry. 13 Ph.D. and over 70 M. Sc. & B.Sc. theses were carried out under his supervision.

The book addresses the subjects related to the selected aspects of pollutants emission, monitoring and their effects. The most of recent publications concentrated on the review of the pollutants emissions from industry, especially power sector. In this one emissions from opencast mining and transport are addressed as well. Beside of SOx and NOx emissions, small particles and other pollutants (e.g. VOC, ammonia) have adverse effect on environment and human being. The natural emissions (e.g. from volcanoes) has contribution to the pollutants concentration and atmospheric chemistry governs speciation of pollutants, as in the case of secondary acidification. The methods of ambient air pollution monitoring based on modern instrumentation allow the verification of dispersion models and balancing of mass emissions. The comfort of everyday human's activity is influenced by indoor and public transport vehicles interior air contamination, which is effected even by the professional appliances operation. The outdoor pollution leads to cultural heritage objects deterioration, the mechanism are studied and the methods of rehabilitation developed. However to prevent emissions the new technologies are being developed, the new class of these technologies are plasma processes, which are briefly reviewed at the final part of the book.
