Air pollution impact assessment for Sharm El-Sheikh Airport.
MetadataShow full item record
The Air Pollution Impact Assessment for a new Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport has been based on measurements and modelling of ground level concentrations due to emissions from road traffic and aircraft operations. The main air pollution problem in the background atmosphere is suspended particles originating mainly from natural wind blown dust. The total air pollution impact from the future Sharm El-Sheikh airport will not result in any adverse health impacts. The concentrations are normally much below the air quality limit values given in Law no. 4 of Egypt (Table 8) and by the World Health Organisation guideline values. The most “critical” case is the maximum one-hour average NO2 concentration in the unloading and parking zone atthe Terminal building. The maximum concentration may reach 75 % of the air quality limit for Egypt, and is higher than the WHO guideline value.
