The paper presents results of studies concerning the effectiveness of water curtains in eliminating airborne vapours of methyl acetate. It was found that for methyl acetate the determined effectiveness of water curtains was 13.57 times lower than that of ammonia. In practical terms the absorption rate of methyl acetate vapours equalled to the absorption rate set out for ethanol, but was much lower than for methanol. The obtained results have pointed to the efficiency of water curtains in incidents that comprise uncontrolled release of methyl acetate.
