Abstract

Air pollution prevention is an economic burden to a person and to a nation on a global scale. Air pollution is a threat to human and environment; therefore, it is extremely important to understand fundamental sources, causes, health effects associated with air pollution. This monograph gives an overview about air pollution and suggests the suitable preventive measures to reduce air pollution. This monograph includes air pollution from IC engines, primary organic aerosols (POAs), effect of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on health and some advanced topics such as numerical simulation of airflow in hospital. This monograph also includes various engine technologies such as multipoint port fuel injection (MPFI), common rail direct injection (CRDI), indirect injection engine (IDI) and gasoline direct injection (GDI) techniques to reduce air pollution from road transport sector. Nuclear pollution, which is another threat for human life and environment is discussed towards end of this monograph.
