This paper deals with the development of 2 approaches for the modelling of the transport of gaseous pollutant with CFD code Fluent. The pollutant is either considered as a scalar and modelled with a transport equation, or it is described through species transported modelling. The 2 methods are presented and the results compared to those obtained from an experiment made in a test cell with tracer gas SF6.
