  • Modelling of air pollution in the area of Algiers City, Algeria

    Algiers is the political and economic capital of Algeria. The city drains a large part of the activities of the country with intense road traffic. This road traffic is the main source of air pollution, followed by industry and waste combustion. An application of the new road traffic emission model, called EMISENS, is performed to build road traffic emission inventories for the Algiers region. ...

  • Dispersion models and air quality data for population exposure assessment to air pollution

    Evaluating the extent of exposure to chemicals in absence of continuous measurements of their concentration in air and direct measures of personal exposure is crucial for epidemiological studies. Dispersion models can be a useful tool for reproducing spatio-temporal distribution of contaminants emitted by a specific source. However, they cannot easily be applied to short-term epidemiological ...

  • ADMS-Urban: an air quality management system for traffic, domestic and industrial pollution

    The new version of the Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System for urban environments, ADMS-Urban, is based on the same up-to-date physics as the ADMS model, outlined briefly here in Section 2. The basic model has been the subject of extensive validation studies: as part of this series of European Harmonisation Workshops; sponsored by HMIP (Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Pollution, now part of the ...

  • Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities – an updated assessment

    In 2011, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published a first assessment of the costs of air pollution caused by European industrial facilities. The report Revealing the costs of air pollution from industrial facilities in Europe (EEA, 2011) applied a simplified modelling approach to assess the damage costs to health and the environment in 2009, caused by pollutant emissions from industrial ...

  • Revealing the costs of air pollution from industrial facilities in Europe

    This European Environment Agency (EEA) report assesses the damage costs to health and the environment resulting from pollutants emitted from industrial facilities. It is based on the latest information, namely for 2009, publicly available through the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR, 2011) in line with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Aarhus ...

  • Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities 2008-2012

    In 2011, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published a first assessment of the costs of air pollution caused by European industrial facilities. The report Revealing the costs of air pollution from industrial facilities in Europe (EEA, 2011) applied a simplified modelling approach to assess the damage costs to health and the environment in 2009, caused by pollutant emissions from industrial ...

  • Air pollution damage estimates: the cost per kilogram of pollutant

    To optimise environmental regulations such as emission limits, pollution taxes or tradable permits, it is necessary to know the damage cost per kilogram of emitted pollutant. It is calculated by means of an impact pathway analysis which involves the calculation of the increased pollutant concentration in all affected regions due to an incremental emission (e.g. µg/m² of particles, using models of ...

  • Application of an ISCST3 model for predicting urban air pollution in the Izmir metropolitan area

    A Gaussian atmospheric dispersion model, Industrial Source Complex Short Term (ISCST3), was used to estimate ground-level concentrations of sulphur dioxide (SO2) emitted from source categories of industrial and domestic heating in the city of Izmir, Turkey. Predictions were estimated for the year 2000 across a study area of 80 km x 100 km. Statistical analyses were carried out to evaluate ...

  • A Time Series Forecasting of Air Pollution in Indore

    Abstract. Forecasting involves the generation of a number, set of numbers, or scenario that corresponds to a future occurrence. It is absolutely essential to short-range and long-range planning. By definition, a forecast is based on past data, as opposed to a prediction, which is more subjective and based on instinct, get feel, or guess. For example, the evening news gives the weather ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • Mesoscale transport of air pollutants over Athens: implications for air quality

    Air pollutants released from sources located near and around extensive conurbations such as the Athens Metropolitan Area, can be transported over them under various atmospheric conditions. Some of the industrial sources located to the north-east of Athens are directly responsible for the transport and dispersion of a large number of pollutants. In this paper the result of a number of simulations ...

  • 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 ...

  • Modelling of atmospheric pollutant dispersion in coastal areas

    Some characteristics of air pollution in Tarragona (Spain) were investigated. Tarragona has an important petrochemical industry in a coastal region with a complex terrain. The study was made numerically in sea breeze conditions with a three-dimensional mesoscale meteorological model. The temporal and spatial variations of the wind fields have been used in the Lagrangian equation for a ...

  • Application of the MELPUFF model to air quality assessment in the industrial area of Huelva (Spain)

    The mesoscale Lagrangian puff dispersion model (MELPUFF) has been used in air quality assessment in the area of Huelva. The Huelva area is highly industrialised and it is located on the Atlantic coast of southern Spain. The MELPUFF model was applied to obtain monthly-averaged distributions of SO2 and number of probable exceedances per month of the EU air quality standards. The study period ...

  • Operational background air pollution prediction over Slovenia by QualeAria modelling system – validation

    Slovenia is a country of very complex terrain and many problems with air pollution in the valleys, canyons and basins, where industrial air pollution is combined with traffic and domestic heating air pollution, giving rise to problems for the health impact and the ecosystems directly or indirectly. Among indirect effects is also effect on solar radiation budget because of photochemical smog and ...

  • On the behaviour of air pollutants released from elevated stacks in the vicinity of Athens, Greece

    The main features that characterise the Athens Metropolitan Area (AMA) are its geographical position in the Attic Peninsula, the complicated topography and the neighbouring industrial zone, located to the west and separated from the AMA by a hilly area. The transport of air pollutants from this zone to Athens has been the subject of a number of theoretical and experimental studies. In this paper, ...
