  • Air–quality impact of PM10 emission in urban centres

    This paper calculates a detailed inventory of PM10 emissions in the urban area of Mendoza, Argentina, and evaluates the impact of such emissions by using the CALPUFF dispersion program. It includes direct and indirect emissions from mobile sources; emissions from industrial sources and fugitive emissions from unpaved road and dust production from bare land. The main results show the relevance of ...

  • Air emissions impact measurements at a perchloroethene remediation site

    As part of an U.S. EPA time critical removal action, an air monitoring system was established to measure real-time impacts of perchloroethene (PCE) on the surrounding areas. The soils and groundwater beneath the site (located in West Fargo, North Dakota) were treated using in situ heating of soil and groundwater, with the produced vapors collected using conventional vapor extraction. In order ...

  • Modelling the air quality impact of industrial emissions over a valley in Southern Italy

    The aim of this study is to support decision makers and stakeholders in the management of air quality in an industrial area located in a valley in southern Italy, where neither air quality nor meteorological parameters are routinely monitored. The first phase focused on the inventory of emissions through monitored data at stacks, permissions to emit from local authorities, and life cycle ...

  • Analysis of the impacts of an environmental traffic management system on vehicle emissions and air quality

    Environmental traffic management systems (ETMS) are implemented to improve air quality in urban streets. They allow for a situation-related control of light signal systems to optimise road capacities and enhance traffic flow in street sections. Therefore, they are equipped with mitigation strategies and continuously provided with traffic and air quality data. In this context, it is ...

  • Marine Monitoring of Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Many of us who are not in the marine shipping business probably think of vessels as practical means of transportation, or, when it comes to cruising ships,  a place to spend your vacation. However, not all of us realize that large ships also are floating large power plants, with all aspects that come with power plants including potential contribution to air pollution. The ...

  • Can roadway design air quality impacts

    In recent years, a consensus has emerged that exposure to traffic emissions increases risks of adverse health effects for populations living, working, or going to school near large roadways.1-4 Near-roadway air pollution is characterized by elevated levels of trafficgenerated compounds compared to overall urban background levels with the gradual decrease in concentrations within several hundred ...

  • Relation between the exergy of waste emissions and measures of environmental impact

    In an attempt to improve methodologies for assessing and predicting environmental impact, the relation between several measures of environmental impact potential and exergy is investigated. Exergy is a measure of the degree of disequilibrium between a substance and its environment. The approach taken compares current methods used to assess the environmental impact potential of waste emissions and ...

  • Experimental study of the impacts of external disturbances on N2O emission from water to air

    To obtain a comprehensive understanding of nitrous oxide (N2O) emission from water to air, the impacts of external disturbances including wind, stirring and aeration on N2O emissions were investigated by continuously monitoring N2O concentration variations in water. The volumetric mass transfer coefficient of N2O from water to air ...

  • Controlling Hazardous Air Emissions With A Catalytic Oxidizer

    As the full effect of the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments continue to impact today’s industry, many companies will be required to install new or additional air pollution control equipment. With well over twenty years of proven success, catalytic oxidation is a popular method for controlling volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.During the past 25 years, industry has made progress in ...

  • Carbon dioxide emissions, impact on Malaysia's manufacturing productivity growth

    The methods used to measure productivity growth generally ignore the pollutants that are produced by the industrial processes. For example, pollutant emissions generated as undesirable output, apart from the main output of Malaysia's manufacturing sector, are excluded from the productivity accounting framework. This study aims at an extended productivity measure that takes pollutants into account ...

  • Can Composting BMPS Reduce Air Emissions?

    Imagine a scenario where all yard trimmings collected for recycling have to be received, processed and composted under the cover of a building. It would be tough for most yard trimmings composting facilities to survive the expense. Yet this situation could have occurred in Southern California. At one point, the South Coast ...

  • The impact of an airport on regional air quality at Munich, Germany

    In May 1992, the new airport in Munich, Germany, became fully operational. In 1991, two research programmes within the Bavarian Climate Research Programme (BayFORKLIM) in Germany/Bavaria were established to measure, calculate and model the assumed change of the air quality in the vicinity of the new airport. By analysing the synoptic and local weather situation, measured and modelled air ...

  • The impact of international shipping on European air quality and climate forcing

    Due to its dependence on fossil fuel combustion and the fact that it is one of the least regulated anthropogenic emission sources, emissions from the marine transport sector contribute significantly to air pollution and climate change. The main objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive review of recent literature and reports, taking into account expert knowledge, on the maritime ...

  • Impact of selected policy measures on Europe`s air quality

    This report was prepared by the European Topic Centre for Air and Climate Change (ETC/ACC) of the European Environment Agency (EEA). The authors of the report were Jeroen Kuenen, Mtinkheni Gondwe, Tinus Pulles (TNO, the Netherlands), Frank de Leeuw (PBL, the Netherlands) and Justin Goodwin (S-ESC, United Kingdom). The EEA project manager was Martin Adams. Dr. Leonidas Ntziachristos (Aristotle ...

  • Numerical simulation of the impact of street geometry on vehicle emissions in urban area

    Keeping the street geometry acceptable in an urban area has become an important task to improve the air quality. Gaseous emissions from vehicles increase the incidence of a variety of human health problems. This study presents a numerical simulation of the effect of street geometry on the dispersion of vehicular pollutants in an urban area using various types of k-ε turbulence models, i.e., a ...

  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...

  • Concentrations of air pollutants constant despite drop in emissions

    Concentrations of ozone and particulate matter, two harmful airborne pollutants, have not improved since 1997 despite substantial cuts in emissions of air pollutants across Europe, says a new EEA report where Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) has co-ordinated and are editor ...

  • A mesoscale study of the impact of industrial emissions by using the MM5-CMAQ modelling system

    The scientific interest in improving the air quality tools that provide a detailed description – source oriented – of atmospheric processes and the impact of specific large industrial emission points is growing. This paper describes the results of using a state-of-the-art third-generation air quality modelling system (MM5-CMAQ) over a pilot test industrial site in the Madrid mesoscale domain. The ...
