Air pollution - Ísafjörður

One of the most challenging and widespread environmental problems facing the international community today is air pollution.  Its known impacts on health and the environment make air pollution of growing importance and most major construction projects require environmental impact studies in order to ensure compliancy with environmental air quality regulations.

Vatnaskil has years of experience in the field of air pollution dispersion modelling using state of the art modelling software.


Example projects:

  • Dispersion of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) from proposed geothermal power stations in NE Iceland (Krafla, Krafla II and Bjarnarflag) - Landsvirkjun
  • Dispersion of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) from a proposed geothermal power station in Theistareykir - Landsvirkjun
  • Dispersion of airborne pollution from Alcan’s proposed aluminium smelter in Thorlakshofn - Alcan
  • Dispersion of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) from the geothermal power stations in Nesjavellir and Hellisheidi - Orkuveita Reykjavikur
  • Validation of dispersion modeling for Hellisheiði and Nesjavellir power stations - Orkuveita Reykjavikur
  • Dispersion of air pollution due to the expansion of the Alcan aluminium smelter at Straumsvik - Alcan
  • Dispersion of air pollution from the planned aluminium smelter of Nordural (Century Aluminium) in Helguvik - NordurAl
  • Suspension and dispersion of dust from Halslon reservoir - Landsvirkjun
  • Airborne dust from the banks of Halslon reservoir - Landsvirkjun
  • Dispersion of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) from geothermal power stations in Svartsengi and Reykjanes, proposed power plant in Eldvörp - Hitaveita Suðurnesja
  • Dispersion of pollutants from aluminum smelter and silicon metal plant in Grundartangi, Iceland - NordurAl and Elkem Iceland
