Discuss how different organisations collaborate with each other to provide practical solutions to air pollution control issues.

Using the information given in your class lecture notes, directed/investigative reading and the descriiptions of current practice from external professional staff write one report describing either (but not both) of the following:
 Air quality management in the proximity of the Grangemouth industrial complex
 Urban air pollution management in Glasgow and/or other international cities
Your report can describe environmental pollution management activities from a risk-based perspective and should have particular focus on issues relating to the protection of human health. Wider environmental quality management issues covered in seminar presentations can also be included if you wish to do so.
You are free to determine your own report structure. If you have difficulty in determining a structure, you may find part or all of the following risk-based framework helpful:
 Hazard identification: You could describe pollutants & sources and/or processes & activities that lead to emissions
 Exposure assessment: You could describe proximity of source and receptor locations, including any sensitive
receptor locations (schools, hospitals etc.). You could describe environmental exposure monitoring programmes.
 Risk assessment: You could discuss compliance with relevant environmental standards & objectives (see
recommendation below).
 Risk management: You could discuss procedures used for pollutant emission reduction and/or abatement. You
could describe regulatory steps used to attain compliance with current standards and objectives. You could discuss how different organisations collaborate with each other to provide practical solutions to air pollution control issues.
