Abstract
Energy utilities are important sources of pollution emissions. These sources are generally surrounding large, medium and small cities. The electricity demand is growing in all the world and the forecasts for this century are that energy demand will double and even triple during the rest of the century. The need for cleaner emissions and the control and understanding of the impact in air quality concentrations of the emissions of the modern power plants is a must. In this contribution we present a tool to map the forecasted exceedances of Air Quality EU Directive in a large area centered on the power plant and the contribution of different emission sources in a power plant to air concentrations. The tool is based on the MM5-CMAQEMIMO models system. The MM5 model is widely used all over the world and was developed by PSU/NCAR (USA). The CMAQ model is the so-called Community Multiscale Air Quality Modelling System developed by USEPA. EMIMO is an anthropogenic and biogenic air emissions model, which produces hourly emissions per pollutant per square kilometer. The system is accessed over the Internet by authorized personnel on a daily basis.
