Air quality modelling might be needed for your industrial development if it requires government approval.

Air Quality Modelling for Plumes
It is important to ensure that industrial sources do not negatively impact ambient air quality

It may be a complex and technical matter.  It is important that the specialist performs the tasks correctly.  In order to create your air quality assessment, the consultant must use a method that is accurate and approved.  There are very few individuals who are willing to take on this responsibility.

What makes it so complex?

In most jurisdictions, modellers must follow detailed guidelines. Air quality guidelines will typically specify the following:

  • Considerations regarding site design, operations, and emissions
  • What needs to be studied in the environment surrounding industrial sites
  • The type of air quality impacts that must be evaluated

How can we help you?

These twelve steps will form the basis of a basic case study:

  1. Authorize and initiate the modelling process
  2. Determine the location and layout of the site
  3. Determine which nearby sites should be included in the study
  4. Obtain and process meteorological information
  5. Decide where the results of the modelling will be analyzed, for example, schools, hospitals, and rural areas
  6. An assessment of the baseline air quality
  7. Disruptions to airflow caused by structures
  8. Types and quantities of emissions from industrial sites
  9. Operational circumstances. Situations on the site may include both normal and emergency situations
  10. Modeling with appropriate software to examine the maximum impact of the project
  11. Analyzing the output of the model: comparison with ambient air quality standards
  12. Final report
We may include additional steps if the model results indicate that the site design needs to be modified.
