Pollution control systems are essential in this age. Air pollution is produced by both natural (such as volcanic eruptions and wildfires), and man-made causes (including mobile and stationary ones).
Pollutants produced by either mobile or permanent sources, in high enough concentrations, could harm the atmosphere, the surrounding environment, and human life.
That is why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enacted the Clean Air Act (CAA), which imposed rules on both sources of air pollution, in order to assist mitigate their impact on the atmosphere, environment, and human life. Furthermore, several manufacturers like Netsol Water provide advanced treatments, such as air pollution control systems to prevent air pollution.
Air Pollution Control Systems: The Solution to air pollution
In an industrial setting, air pollution control equipment is an umbrella, for systems used to limit and remove, the emission of potentially harmful compounds into the air, atmosphere, and surrounding environments, through manufacturing, process system, and research applications.
Control equipment is used in a variety of industries to prevent the discharge of chemicals, gases, and dust as well as to filter and purify the air, in the workplaces.
Air pollution control system processes
1. Combustion (i.e., destroying the pollutant)
2. Transformation (i.e., chemically changing the pollutant to a less harmful compound)
3. Gathering (i.e., eliminating the pollutant from the waste air before its release into the environment and atmosphere)

How many there are Air pollution control systems?
Different methods provided in air pollution control systems
Scrubbers: Industrial air scrubbers are some of the most commonly used air pollution control devices, in manufacturing and processing facilities. They use a physical process, known as scrubbing, to eliminate particulates and gases from industrial emissions, such as smokestack exhaust (in the case of exhaust air scrubbers), before they are released into the atmosphere.
Scrubbers are classified into two types:
· Dry scrubbers
· Wet scrubbers.
Air Filters: These devices are used to reduce air pollution that use a certain type of filtration medium, to collect and eliminate dry particles and contaminants from the air passing through them, for example dust, pollen, microorganisms, chemicals, and so on.
These devices are used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings to remove contaminants, from exhaust air and enhance workplace air quality. There are various types of air filters available for industrial purposes, including cloth filters and cartridge dust collectors.
Bio-filters: These devices are used to manage air pollution that uses microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi to break down and eliminate water-soluble chemicals. Bio-filters, like incineration devices, destroy pollutants to lower the number of industrial emissions and exhaust.
However, the microorganisms in bio-filters capture and digest gaseous pollutants like VOCs and organic HAP, without producing by-products like NOx and CO that are generally formed during combustion. These devices are capable of exceeding 98% efficiency.
Incinerators: Incinerators are machines that use combustion to convert pollutants into non-toxic by-products. While, these devices can incinerate solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes, they are most commonly used in a variety of industrial applications to preserve air quality, and regulate gas emissions by converting VOCs, hydrocarbons, and other hazardous air pollutants, into innocuous compounds such as CO2, nitrogen, and O2.
Scrubbers typically replace incinerators in an air pollution control system, as the scrubbing operation removes any extra compounds generated during the burning process.
Catalytic Reactors: These are air pollution control systems that are frequently used in industrial applications, to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions caused by the combustion of fossil fuels. These devices inject ammonia into industrial exhaust and pollutants, where it interacts with NOx molecules to form nitrogen and oxygen.
Catalytic reactors are commonly employed in modern automobiles; the three-way catalytic converter in the exhaust system of a car is used to lower the levels of NOx, CO, and other VOCs, in engine emissions.
Almost every aspect of the industrial process produces air pollution, including raw material sourcing, product manufacturing, maintenance and repair services, and distribution. As a result, numerous types of air pollution management devices are available for air pollutants, produced by both mobile and stationary sources in a variety of industries.
