- Acid rain : Deposition of acidified rain, snow, sleet, hail, gases and particles, and acidified fog and cloud water, due to nitric or sulfuric acid pollution.
- Aerosol : Tiny drops, or tiny particles, suspended in a gas.
- Air Quality Index : A number used by government agencies to characterize the quality of the ambient air at a given location.
- Air pollution dispersion terminology : Describes and explains the words and technical terms that have a special meaning to workers in the field of air pollution dispersion modeling.
- Air preheater : A general term to describe any device designed to preheat the combustion air used in a fuel-burning furnace for the purpose of increasing the thermal efficiency of the furnace.
- Anion : A chemical ion with a negative charge. Positive ions are called cations.
- Atmosphere : The layers of gas surrounding stars and planets.
- Combustion : A sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat or both heat and light in the form of either a glow or flames.
- Conventional coal-fired power plant : An industrial plant which produces electricity by burning of coal and air in a steam generator that heats water to produce high pressure steam which then flows through a series of steam turbines that spin an electrical generator to generate electricity.
- Environmental engineering : A field of engineering devoted to remediation of all forms of pollution.
- Flue gas desulfurization : The technology for removing sulfur dioxide from the flue gases resulting from the combustion of coal or fuel oil in power plant steam generators or other large combustion sources.
- Flue gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion : Discussion and listing of the comparative amounts of flue gas (exhaust gas) generated by the combustion of coal, fuel oil and natural gas.
- Flue gas stack : A vertical pipe, channel or chimney (also referred to as a smokestack) through which combustion product gases (flue gases) are exhausted to the atmosphere. Includes the draft (draught) effect of hot gases flowing through tall stacks (chimneys).
- Flue gas : The gas that exits to the atmosphere via a flue which may be a pipe, channel or chimney for conveying combustion product gases from a fireplace, oven, furnace, boiler or steam generator.
- Gasoline : A fuel for spark-ignited internal combustion engines derived from petroleum crude oil.
- Hydrodesulfurization : A catalytic chemical process used in petroleum refining to remove sulfur compounds from intermediate and refined end-products.
- Lake Kivu : One of the African Great Lakes.
- List of inorganic compounds : Add brief definition or description
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology : A private research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a strong emphasis on scientific and technological research.

- Pollutant : Any substance introduced into the environment that adversely affects the usefulness of a natural resource or the health of humans, animals, or ecosystems.
- Refineries : Industrial manufacturing facilities composed of a group of chemical engineering unit processes and unit operations used for the conversion certain raw materials such as petroleum crude oil, mined ores, sugar or salt into finished products of value or for the refining and purification of partially converted raw materials into finished products.
- Sour gas : Natural gas, petroleum refinery byproduct gas, or any other gas containing significant amounts of hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
- Sulfuric acid : A chemical compound with the formula H2SO4, which is the diprotic acid of the sulfate anion SO4-2. It can be classified as an inorganic strong acid which is a dense, corrosive, liquid at room temperature and pressure.
