About this book

This book discusses different aspects of energy consumption and environmental pollution, describing in detail the various pollutants resulting from the utilization of natural resources and their control techniques. It discusses diagnostic techniques in a simple and easy-to-understand manner. It will be useful for engineers, agriculturists, environmentalists, ecologists and policy makers involved in area of pollutants from energy, environmental safety, and health sectors.

About the authors

Dr. Rashmi A. Agarwal is a senior researcher at IIT Kanpur. She completed her doctoral degree in Inorganic Chemistry from IIT Kanpur in 2014. She completed her M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry from Rajasthan University, Jaipur in 2002 and B.Sc. in Chemistry, from Kanoria College, Rajasthan University, Jaipur in 2000. She has expertise in coordination chemistry, coordination polymers, organic synthesis, inorganic synthesis, crystal structure determination, supramolecular chemistry, porous materials, topology, florescence, SC (single crystal)-to-SC transformation, synthesis of nano-particles. Dr. Rashmi A. Agarwal has published over 20 research papers in leading international journals.
Avinash K. Agarwal is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. His areas of interest are IC engines, combustion, alternative fuels, conventional fuels, optical diagnostics, laser ignition, HCCI, emission and particulate control, and large bore engines. He has published 24 books and 230+ international journal and conference papers. Prof. Agarwal is a Fellow of SAE (2012), ASME (2013), ISEES (2015) and INAE (2015). He received several awards such as Prestigious Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award-2016 in Engineering Sciences, Rajib Goyal prize-2015, NASI-Reliance Industries Platinum Jubilee Award-2012; INAE Silver Jubilee Young Engineer Award-2012; SAE International’s Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award-2008; INSA Young Scientist Award-2007; UICT Young Scientist Award-2007; INAE Young Engineer Award-2005.
Dr. Tarun Gupta, Professor and PK Kelkar Research Fellow at the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Kanpur, India. He holds a Doctor of Science (2004) in Environmental Health, Harvard University (USA) and Master of Technology (2000), Environmental Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (9-month research stay at the TU Dresden, Germany). He has published more than 95 articles in ISI indexed journals, 4 book chapters, and filed 4 Indian patents. A submicron aerosol sampler designed, developed and evaluated at the IIT Kanpur has since been commercialized by Envirotech (Delhi). He has developed several low-flow-rate and high-flow-rate impaction-based samplers and a non-selective membrane-based diffusion denuder. He is a member of INYAS (2016), PK Kelkar Research Fellowship (2015), NASI Scopus Young Scientist (2015), INSA Young Scientist (2011), INAE Young Engineer (2009), and IEI Young Engineer (2008). 
Nikhil Sharma is a scientist in the Engine Research Laboratory in IIT Kanpur, India. He received his M.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering from NIT Hamirpur, India in 2012. and his Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur, in 2017. He was an assistant professor at Amity University’s Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, Noida. His areas of research include alternative fuels for IC engines (biodiesel, alcohols), emission control and particulate characterisation.
