Air quality modelling and management strategies in Jinan City, China

Working on behalf of the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Ricardo, working in conjunction with local experts, used its start-of-the-art modelling tools and methodology to determine source contribution to air pollution in Jinan City.

Ricardo's air quality experts provided a source apportionment analysis for Jinan City, which included how sources contributing to air pollution vary by season for example in winter the domestic sector emissions are dominate, but in summer industry has the largest impact.

Our air quality experts highlighted a range of potentially effective air quality management options, which could be used to inform the development of an air quality action plan for Jinan City and across the Shandon Province.
