Air & Waste Management Association Offers E-Course on NOx Control
Pittsburgh, PA – The Air & Waste Management Association will offer its 10-hour online course, “NOx Control for Industrial and Utility Applications,” beginning Monday, April 2, 2007.
The course focuses on control of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions for industrial heating equipment, including boilers, kilns, fired heaters, furnaces, and thermal oxidizers, as well as coal-fired boilers and gas turbines used for power production. Economical front-end changes in combustion equipment and more expensive end-of-pipe post-combustion controls are covered. Regulations that affect allowable NOx levels are also reviewed.
The curriculum is divided into four modules: Introduction, Combustion, NOx Control for Stationary Industrial Applications, and NOx Control for Utility Applications. Participants have four weeks to complete the course, and are expected to follow the curriculum as indicated through the modules. Upon completion, participants can take a final exam and receive a certificate documenting their continuing education hours.
The course will be taught by Thomas F. McGowan, P.E., who offers 30 years of experience in engineering thermal systems and air pollution control. He is president of TMTS Associates, Inc., an engineering consulting firm working on combustion, air pollution control, and thermal treatment systems.
The Air & Waste Management Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional organization that provides training, information, and networking opportunities to thousands of environmental professionals in 65 countries.
