“Air Quality Impact Assessment” is required by Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (EIAO). Running PATH-2016* is becoming essential. This workshop organised by ClusterTech Limited aims to help participants quickly understand the process involved, tricks and skills to run PATH-2016 smoothly and effectively on suitable computing environment. Upon completion, delegates will understand how Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) reports can be generated at low risk and cost.
