Sulfur Dioxide Removal from Gases U.S.: Lime-Limestone

  • I. A. Raben
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 2)


It is an honor and pleasure to speak to The Society of Engineering Science at its First International Meeting on Pollution: Engineering and Scientific Solutions. The time has come when we can no longer take our environment for granted. Clean air and pure water are important to the quality of our lives.
