Medical studies conclude that polluted air can cause serious health problems such as stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and other ailments. Particulate matter floating


Energy Substitution Potential in China’s Non-metallic Mineral Products Industry-based on the Translog Function and Corrected Formula for Elasticity

The non-metallic mineral products industry (NMMPI) of China is the largest in the world and has a character of low energy efficiency, which made this sector energy-intensive and therefore one of leading contributors to CO2 and other pollutants. Therefore, researchers have been paying more and more attentions to the degree of non-energy factors substituting for


Air Quality-forecasting Impacts from Industrial Sources with an Operational Atmospheric Modelling System: Spain Case Study

Introducing an integrated software tool to help industrial plants assess the impact of their emissions on air quality in surrounding areas, based on air quality forecasts. It is a tool for mapping the expected exceedances of the EU Air Quality Directive over a large area centered on the industrial plants and the contribution of different
