Abstract:   (3006 Views)

Background & Objectives: Nowadays, air pollution is one of the major challenges in the world, therefore, in the present study, according to the importance of the fourth refinery gas as the largest gas refinery in the region, the amount of emissions from stacks has been initially determined and then the distribution has been identified in the region.

Methods: In this research, AERMOD and CALPUFF models have been used as the tools for the analysis of NOX emissions of stacks of 4th South Pars gas refinery located in Assaluyeh. First, NOX emissions from refinery stacks have been obtained by field measurements. Then, the distribution of these emissions has been examined using dispersion models AERMOD and CALPUFF in an area of 50 × 50 km in each direction x and y in the one-year period of 2013 to the average time of 1, 3, 8, and 24 and the amounts resulting from the implementation of the models have been compared to the results of field measurements at 9 receiving stations as a separate receptors in the model.

Results: Review of charts and statistical parameters has shown that, according to the evaluation of predictions made, the CALPUFF model was better than AERMOD model, in the studied area.

Conclusion: It could be concluded that performance of both models to predict the concentration of pollutants in the region can be generally considered acceptable.

Keywords: NOX, AERMOD dispersion model, CALPUFF dispersion model, Gas Refinery
