Ammonia Assessment – Cornwall
Southwest Environmental Limited have recently completed an Ammonia Assessment for an an agricultural building in Cornwall.
The building is a large modern dairy unit with associated yard areas and slurry management infrastructure.
The brief from the client was to conduct a SCAIL Assessment so as to establish whether the project would screen out using this method of preliminary assessment. The project did not screen out, showing an exceedance of ammonia deposition and concentration at nearby sensitive ecological receptors.
Following this we constructed am AERMOD model to incorporate all features of the proposed development, and determined deposition and concentrations at the receptors that did not screen out in the SCAIL Assessment.
Our model return ed a positive result and we have submitted the report for assessment by Natural England.
