This paper presents the use of a software application for protection of the environment through modelling and simulation of air and soil pollution at the industrial waste deposit of Korlaće, Serbia, asbestos mine pit. In cases of abandoned mines, with a proper surveillance not being possible, a modelling-based pollution assessment is of utmost importance in implementation of measures for reduction and mitigation of the impact of dangerous waste deposits. For that purpose, a simulation of various climatic conditions typical of this region has been conducted - humidity 20%, air speed 2-7 m/s, and temperature range of -10 to 36ºC. Because of the minor probability for greater air speed in this area they have not been examined. The calculation has been done by means of SCREENVIEW software, and the obtained results have been compared with the investigation results of the samples taken from the site. The calculated results have shown a nice agreement with the experimental values, which demonstrates the applicability of the software application.
