Strategies to tackle environmental pollution have been receiving increasing attention throughout the world in recent years. Power generation using fossil fuel such as coal, natural gas and petroleum is responsible for the release of pollutants into the atmosphere along with the off-gases from industries, power stations, residential heating systems and vehicles. During the combustion process various pollutants such as fly ash, sulphur oxides (SO2 and SO3), nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO2 + NO) and volatile organic compounds are emitted. Radiation processing using electron beam accelerators has shown very promising results in this regard. Over the last few years, radiation treatment techniques have been developed and deployed for ensuring environmental safety from gaseous and liquid effluents. It has been demonstrated that electron beam flue gas treatment (SOx and NOx removal), wastewater purification and sludge hygienization can be effectively deployed.
