CASE STUDIES: AIR DISPERSION MODELING
CH2M HILL Hanford Group, Inc, Richland, WA
AQA performed SCIPUFF and ISC modeling for odor and carcinogen emissions
from the Hanford Waste site in Washington State. Validated the safety of ducting emissions from underground storage tanks to a single stack located away from
the worker areas so that workers would no longer need to use a self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Kosovo's Coal-fired Power Plant
AQA performed air dispersion modeling using SCICHEM and AERMOD for
emissions of particulates less than 10 microns (PM10), and less than 2.5 microns (PM2.5),
nitrogen oxides (NOX) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) from a coal-fired power plant in Kosovo.
Results were used to determine the best location for new air monitors, to confirm
existing monitoring results and to compare to European Air Quality Limit Values.
