  • SAGA: a decision support system for air pollution management around a coal-fired power plant

    Air quality models are currently feasible approaches to prevent air pollution episodes. From one of the first source-oriented modelling approaches for air pollution forecasting (Souto et al., 1994, 1996, 1998), a new decision support system for air quality management, SAGA, was developed to provide support to As Pontes Power Plant (APPP) staff. SAGA can provide air pollution forecasts and manage ...

  • Treatment of Arsenic Contaminated Industrial Wastewaters

    Arsenic in industrial wastewater effluents is attracting greater regulatory attention. Depending on factors such as total maximum daily loads (TMDLs), the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) discharge permit levels for arsenic may even be less than the drinking water standard of 10 µg/L. One of the industries affected by stringent arsenic discharge limits is coal-fired power ...
