Background and rationale of the Course :
The training needs assessment (TNA) indicated that less than half of the industries surveyed were in compliance with the SPCB standards, though a large number of them had invested in pollution control equipment. On the basis of the reasons cited for such non-compliance the following training needs were identified :
· Knowledge and skills in operation and maintenance of air pollution
This course is designed to cover the first two training needs listed above (the remaining are covered in course 4.1). The broad coverage of this course takes into consideration, the status of air pollution control in the Indian context vis-a-vis the western countries.
In western countries, air pollution prevention is considered more important and effective than installation of air pollution control equipment. Prevention measures often lead to energy/ cost savings for industries. In fact, environmental clearance authorities expect industries to consider all possible prevention methods before planning to instal air pollution control equipment.
Considering the above situation, the following factors are relevant in the Indian context and are addressed by the course:
· Scope for greater prevention of air pollution
This course, only provides a broad overview of solutions to industry problems. However, case-specific solutions to industry-specific problems such as as fugitive emissions from mining/ flue gases from DG sets are beyond the scope of this course.
It is expected that greater understanding of management techniques,
prevention measures and operating principles of air pollution control
equipment would provide substantial inputs for design and implementation
of solutions aimed at continuously higher compliance with Indian air
pollution standards and requirements.
· Industry managers responsible for environmental performance
specially in industries with substantial air pollution problems.
· Degree in science or engineering.
