AQMRC was commissioned by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority to assist them in determining the impact of the Delimara Power Station on local air quality, particularly PM10.
Using a bespoke methodology and the application of an innovative
analytical approach, AQMRC's technical
report assessed the effect of using Heavy Fuel Oil by analysing
monitoring data temporally and spatially to determine whether the
station is likely to cause exceedences of the EU Limit Values for PM10.
