Environmental impact assessment of a new thermal power plant Šoštanj Block 6 in highly complex terrain

0

Slovenia is starting an important investment - Block 6 of the thermal power plant in Šoštanj located in the Velenje basin and characterised by very complex terrain. Air pollution examination as part of the environmental impact assessment is an interesting example of usage of the modern Lagrangian particle model Spray coupled with the diagnostic mass consistent wind field model Minerve for the determination of the appropriate height for the combined cooling tower. In addition, a separate study was done on a larger domain to evaluate possibilities of trans–boundary pollution, as the location is only 25 km from the Austrian border.
