ABSTRACT

Major environmental problem worldwide, air pollution gains our particular attention,
especially in the case of industrial emission. Among such concerns, SO2 generated by
combustion flue gas requires profound analysis, mostly because it is known to cause
acid rains. In time, many mathematical models gave both quantification and prediction
of pollution level.

This work aims to compare several SO2 dispersion equations (i.e. Sutton equation,
Bosanquet-Pearson equation and diffusion equation, derived from the plume dispersion
model) and establish their relative effectiveness for the maximum ground concentration
and maximum distance, on wind direction, at which SO2 ground concentration, reaches
maximum value for combustion flue gas.

Keywords: SO2 dispersion, maximum concentration, combustion flue gas
