Thermal waste treatment processes produce flue gas contaminated by particulates, heavy metals and acidic gases which requires treatment. This specialist e-learning course provides you with the opportunity to learn more about flue gas treatment techniques and technologies. The course focuses on five key areas:

• The need for flue gas treatment
• Abatement theory
• De-nox techniques
• Alternative technologies
• Dry filtration and baghouse technology

There is a short assessment to complete prior to being awarded the certificate.

a) All candidates taking this e-learning course, MUST have an individual email address.
b) If purchasing multiple licences, then please send a note of the candidates’ names and email addresses to
