SIM-air Family of Tools

These tools can help establish a multi-pollutant emissions inventory, estimate PM pollution via dispersion modeling, assess the health impacts of current and future emissions, and provide a platform to optimize among pollution control interventions. The tools are free and modularized for rapid assessment. More on SIM-air

Example city applications - Hyderabad, Delhi, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hanoi, Dhaka, Bangkok, Shanghai, Lagos, Tana, Santiago, and Ulaanbaatar.

Air Pollution Analysis for Indian Cities

Accelerating growth in the transport sector, a booming construction industry, and a growing industrial sector are responsible for worsening air pollution in Indian cities. We applied the SIM-air family of tools to develop an emissions inventory, conduct dispersion modeling of particulate pollution, and evaluated the health impacts of current and projected 2020 scenarios in a co-benefits framework for six cities - Pune, Chennai, Indore, Ahmedabad, Surat, and Rajkot.

Coal-fired Power Plants in India

PM10 Pollution from Coal-fired Power Plants in IndiaThe emissions from the coal fired power plants in India were analyzed using the CAMx dispersion model over the Sub-continent to estimate the health impacts of the particulate pollution. We estimate up to up to 120,000 premature deaths attributable to these emissions in 2010 and more in the coming years if the regulations are not tightened. More on the Study

Road Transport in India 2010-30

India Road Transport - Gridding EmissionsThe emissions inventory is built for the following pollutants – PM, SO2, NOx, CO, VOC, BC, OC and CO2, for the period of 2010 to 2030 under the business as usual and some control scenarios. The total emissions are further gridded to a spatial resolution of 0.25° grid size. Health impact analysis following the dispersion modeling, estimates up to 49,500 deaths attributable to road transport emissions in 2010.  More on the Study
