Korea has adopted Environmental Impact
Assessment (hereafter “EIA”) system for more than 3 decades. There are 74 big
projects subject to EIA according to (Environmental Impact Assessment Law (No. 10892).
For thermal power plant of which output is more than 10 MW, EIA must be done by
proponents. To assess impact on atmospheric environment, proponents utilize air
dispersion models and to minimize the adverse impact on air quality,
state-of-the-art add-on control technology is applied.
