  • Old container, new station: WS600 part of air quality measurement system in Kutaisi

    An AQM station including a Lufft WS600 all-in-one weather sensor was installed by our local system integrator ELKO LLC in Kutaisi, Georgia in May 2017. It was mounted on an existing measurement container provided by the customer LEPL National Environmental Agency. The system consists of a Fidas® 200 fine dust monitor and immission measurement system detecting PM2.5 and PM10 particles ...

  • Neptune Project Deliverable D1.2

    Several EU member states have yet to satisfy the stringent nutrient removal requirement of the Urban Waste Water Directive (1991) for sensitive areas. An environmental engineer working in the field of wastewater treatment is faced with increasing demands on the treatment efficiency. With the new European Water Framework Directive (EWFD, 2000/60/CE) there is a shift in paradigm from emission-based ...

  • Comparing the impact of a road tunnel vs. a road viaduct by means of an integrated exposure assessment

    Using the MOBILEE methodology, we performed a detailed air quality assessment for three scenarios for the ring road around Antwerp, a major city in Belgium, using PM10 and NOx emission inventories for 2003 (reference) and 2015 (projected future situation), followed by an assessment of the exposure of the ...

  • An integrated approach for urban water quality assessment

    This paper introduces an integrated approach for the assessment of receiving water quality and the relative contribution of the urban drainage system to perceived receiving water quality problems. The approach combines mass balances with relatively simple receiving water impact models. The research project has learned that the urban drainage system is only one of the determining factors with ...

  • Emission standards versus immission standards for assessing the impact of urban drainage on ephemeral receiving water bodies

    In the past, emission standard indicators have been adopted by environmental regulation authorities in order to preserve the quality of a receiving water body. Such indicators are based on the frequency or magnitude of a polluted discharge that may be continuous or intermittent. In order to properly maintain the quality of receiving waters, the Water Framework Directive, following the basic ideas ...

  • IFDM modelling for optimal siting of air quality monitoring stations around five oil refineries

    An IFDM modelling study has been conducted to determine the optimal siting of air quality monitoring stations around five oil refineries. The purpose of this immission monitoring network is specified in environmental legislation. The most appropriate output parameter of the IFDM model for this study is the 98th percentile of the moving 24 h averages, P98,m24h. Modelling for the optimal siting of ...

  • The 1998 IFDM evaluation with the model validation kit

    A modification of the Immission Frequency Distribution Model (IDFM) can reproduce the Kincaid and Indianapolis arc-wise maximum ground-level concentrations (GLCs) and crosswind integrated concentrations (CWICs) fairly well. But we doubt whether these modifications are really an improvement of the description of the natural ambient atmospheric dispersion process, rather than merely fitting a ...
