    Abstract

    In this study, state-of-the-art air quality assessment and modelling techniques were used to gain an understanding of the significance of emissions from coal-fired power stations located in New South Wales, Australia, to the occurrence of atmospheric particles (PM10 and PM2.5) in the near-field of the power stations and regionally, including the Sydney urban area. Using a conservative first-order reaction methodology combined with a comprehensive chemical transformation methodology the project has demonstrated that the contribution of NSW coal-fired power station emissions to urban fine particle concentrations is likely to be small and infrequent.
