    concentrations for an urban street canyon in Ireland

    Two urban street canyon models, STREET and OSPM, were investigated at Pearse Street, in the centre of Dublin City. Both STREET and OSPM is semi–empirical model that calculates series of hourly concentrations at different receptor locations within a street canyon. From the assessment carried out, for the STREET model, the value of the site specific constant parameter K with a value of 7 gave ...

  • Identification of Seasonal Variations in Volatile Sulfur Compound Formation and Emission from the Secondary Treatment System at a Large Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Offensive odors associated with gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are a nuisance to residential communities that exist in close proximity to these facilities. Excessively high odor levels may result in local litigation and new regulatory requirements to reduce emissions from these treatment plants. The purpose of this study was to identify, quantify and determine source ...

  • Some determinants of carbon dioxide emissions in Bangladesh

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, industrial output growth, population growth and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in Bangladesh for 1972–2008 are found non–stationary in terms of both Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Kwiatkowski, Phillips, Schmidt and Shin (KPSS) tests with different orders of integration. As a result, the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model and ...

In order to foster sustainable development and mitigate climate change, it is therefore important to provide national and regional authorities with appropriate measures to reduce criteria pollutants (PM 10, PM2.5, O3, CO2, SO2 and NOx) concentrations in air. Many cities are not able of ...

  • Evaluation of new model tools for meeting the targets of the EU Air Quality Directive: a case study on the studded tyre use in Sweden

    Two new model tools have been developed for meeting the EU Air Quality Directive targets: SIMAIRroad (related to traffic emissions) and SIMAIRrwc (rwc standing for residential wood combustion). The models have been evaluated for different traffic situations and for residential areas with wood combustion, with promising results. The models can calculate PM10 statistics, such as ...
