Organization and Objectives
CSIA-ATI was founded in 1965. It has individual supporting bodies as members. CSIA is a special committee working within the frame of the Italian Thermotechnical Association, founded in 1947 with the main object of promoting and supporting research and activities in thermotechnics. In 1965 an ad hoc group, Gruppo di Studio Inquinamento Atmosferico was established for the purpose of creating a specialised scientific centre for technical and social reference in air pollution control, a problem closely related to thermotechnics and energy use. In 1983 the Group was renamed CSIA.
