We provide dispersion modelling assessment services in support of projects throughout the UK, as well as internationally. These have included representation of releases from a wide variety of source types with a range of plume characteristics, with associated variation in associated impact.

Our specialist advice is provided by our knowledgeable and personable Air Quality Consultants, providing understanding of your project to ensure site-specific solutions.

Dispersion Modelling Assessments

Redmore Environmental maintains a full range of dispersion modelling software packages. These include:

  • ADMS-5
  • ADMS-Roads
  • AERMOD
  • Breeze-Roads
  • Screen-View
  • DMRB

Proficiency in all of the above software packages allows us to select the most appropriate for your specific issue, whilst not limiting the scope of our offering.

Why undertake Dispersion Modelling?

Atmospheric emissions from all industrial facilities, as well as roads, farms or any other pollutant source, can cause adverse air quality impacts at sensitive locations, meaning accurate dispersion modelling is vital in identifying issues at an early stage in the design process. Site specific considerations, such as building effects, local topography and prevailing meteorological conditions, can all be included within the model. This produces a detailed representation of the actual location for use in the assessment.

Dispersion modelling is recognised as a critical tool in the determination of potential pollutant concentrations, meaning assessments are often requested in support of Environmental Permit and planning applications. It can also investigate and aid the design of mitigation to limit potential air quality impacts. As well as test various scenarios to identify associated benefits and constraints.

Dispersion modelling can also assess plume travel and behavior. Previous applications have included:

  • Temperature implications of Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) plumes at nearby residential properties
  • Generation of visible plumes over airports
  • The effect of plume momentum and temperature on aircraft turbulence

Experts in Emissions

Our in-depth understanding of industry and atmospheric chemistry means we can carefully focus the scope of your dispersion modelling assessment. This includes utilising our full suite of software to ensure regulatory obligations are fulfilled.

Our extensive experience of working on a wide variety of projects has allowed us to develop our dispersion modelling techniques. This has included novel methods for complex source representation, advanced modelling options, treatment of challenging sites and results analysis. These skills now benefit all our dispersion modelling or air quality assessment projects.

Some examples of our successfully delivered dispersion modelling projects include:
