The objective of this research was to develop a software for the simulation of air pollution control processes. The software developed, named SIMTEGUC, uses a modular and sequential approach for the management and control of the information flow during the process simulation. The following simulation units were developed: cyclones, bag filters, electrostatic precipitators, mixers, flow splitters, units for the control and promotion of convergence in recycling processes, absorbers and particle scrubbers. All these units were validated individually through a comparative study of the results obtained from the simulation and the results from a commercial simulation program, with a deviation of less than 7%. It was concluded that the program developed produced good results and could be extended to other areas
