Zastosowanie systemu modeli CALMET/CALPUFF o wysokiej rozdzielczości do oceny wpływu na jakość powietrza spalarni odpadów komunalnych w KrakowieInżynieria i Ochrona Środowiska (2015)
In this paper there was presented a comprehensive assessment of the impact on air for the Municipal Solid Waste Incineration (MSWI) plant in Krakow with the planned start of operation by the end of 2015. Construction of the plant started in autumn 2013 in the district of Nowa Huta in Krakow. Modeling of the spread of pollutants in ambient air was conducted using an advanced multi-layer cloud CALPUFF Gaussian model, whose algorithms include, among other things, diversity of terrain. Spatial data of land area in the admitted computational domain are obtained from digital terrain model Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM3) and land cover database Corine Land Cover 2006 (CLC 2006) with resolution of about 100 m. Meteorological conditions were determined using a diagnostic meteorological model CALMET based on meteorological data from subsurface stations and radar surveys. Spatial variability of the hourly, daily and annual averages of air pollutant concentrations was obtained in computing grid with very high density. The results of calculations indicate that pollutant emissions from MSWI plant in Krakow adopted at the maximum allowable level will not cause exceedances of acceptable levels or reference values in the air and will not also contribute to a significant deterioration of air quality in the Agglomeration of Krakow and neighboring municipalities.
