This project aims to investigate the chemical compositions of particulate matter in ambient air of Na Phra Lan Pollution Control Zone of Saraburi Province, where the cement manufacturing and mining activities are located, in order to quantify the source's contributions of particulate matter emissions in the area. The source apportionment will be done by using a selected receptor model with the analysis of bivariate polar plots. In addition, an emission inventory of this pollution control zone will be also developed for AERMOD dispersion modeling application under different emission control scenarios. The findings in this project will suggest the possible control measures of particulate matter emissions with recommended policy dissemination.
