Summary

The subject deals with issues of air protection against unfavourable effects of industrial activity. Influences of individual harmful substances and also consequences of specific industrial technologies and existing possibilities and methods of their elimination are assessed. Attention is paid above all to possibilities of implementation of new technologies, separators, chemical treatment of exhaust gases and supplementary processes.
