Abstract: Now a day, Environmental degradation is a global level issue and very serious threat to eco-system. Hence analyzing the environmental quality becomes mandatory to overcome the various types of environmental pollution. Hence, EIA becomes compulsory in almost more than 29 countries to execute any of the proposed activities like the construction of dam structures, mining works, construction and execution of industries etc. Analyzing the existing environmental condition of the proposed study area is very important as a part of EIA. The current study have been conducted for analyzing the air quality at a Industrial City in South India due to the Huge human settlements, the subsequent development of Urbanization through Deforestation, Colonization, Industrialization and Transportation, and in turn, to ascertain the increase in pollution level. The emissions through Area sources were identified and the environmental quality has been determined through a specific technology transfer – Environmental Evaluation System (EES) with the assigned parameter importance units.
Keywords: Area source, EIA, Emission factors, Emission Inventory, Parameter Importance Unit
