In this study, air pollution originating from the Çerkezköy Organized Industrial Zone was examined and an inventory of emissions from different industries (specifically PM10, PM2.5, SOx, NOx and CO) was developed. As a result, it was determined that approximately 2302.6 μg/m3 emissions are produced daily in the zone and the highest emissions originate from the food (834 μg/m3), plastics (627.3 μg/m3) and textile sector (514.1 μg/m3) respectively. In this context, NOx emission originates from the plastic and food sector to a significant extent. It is estimated that the excess thermal power used in the facilities plays a role in the production of NOx emissions. SOx emission depends on the sulphur content of the fuel used. The highest SOx emission is produced from the food sector (14.62 μg/m3) in the zone. In this context, it is thought that the use of poor quality fuel with low calorific value significantly increases SOx emissions. CO emissions are mostly caused by combustion reactions in the facilities. The main reason is that these combustion reactions do not take place with full efficiency. The highest CO emissions originate from the food, plastic and textile sectors in the zone. It is known that PM is formed in case of thermal decomposition of fuel molecules in an oxygen-poor environment. In the smog formed after this decomposition, compounds such as VOC, sulphate and PM is formed. It has been observed that PM formation is mostly caused by the processes in the building - construction materials sector in the zone.
