Air Pollution Prevention Applications for the Transport Sector by Integrating Urban Area Transport and Vehicle Emission Models with the Case Study of Bangkok, Thailand

Padet Praditphet

Abstract:
This study proposes air pollution prevention applications for urban area transportation aimed at minimizing pollution and meeting ambient air quality standards through the use of transport and vehicle emissions models that account for air pollution changes resulting from prevention strategies. This study combines pollution prevention techniques and transport and vehicle emissions models to enhance air pollution prevention in an urban area. The amount of air emissions from transportation continues to rise as travel patterns expand, necessitating reduced pollution emissions from the transportation sector. This study aims to probe the major causes for the increase in air pollutants in the transportation sector of Bangkok and proposes a feasible method capable of reducing and controlling its associated air pollution. Furthermore, the results suggest that the most effective countermeasures to transportation-based air emissions include four potential solutions that promote the use of Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) buses and the institution of rerouting existing services. The current study can be used to formulate policies related to air pollution on a macro scale.
