The report gives results of a study to relate ground level NO2 concentrations to NOx emissions (NO2/NOx ratio) in plumes from six large power plants in the Chicago area, using a photostationary state reactive Gaussian plume model. The aim of the study was to assess the level of NOx control required to meet a probable short-term NO2 national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS). The major uncertainty of an earlier study was its assumption of uniform, fixed NO2/NOx ratios of 0.5 (summer) and 0.25 (winter). The previous study indicated that most of the six plants could meet a 500 microgram/cu m short-term NO2 standard using NOx combustion modification techniques (50% NOx control); this study indicates NOx flue gas treatment technology (90% control) may be required on these plants to meet a 750 microgram/cu m standard, and most certainly for 500 micrograms/cu m.
