Air Emissions

Target Application:

  • Monitoring of anthropogenic atmospheric emissions (oil refineries, power stations, burning of liquid and solid fuels, cement factories, mining industries, incinerators, iron foundries, grinderies, asphalt plants, glassmakers, ceramics factories).
  • Deposition of radioactive aerosols. 
  • Monitoring the combustion air of power plants and of steel and iron industry.
  • Measurement of dust realease in workplace and production processes, exhaust fumes of private houses, and newly developed engines (for cars and other vehicles).

Target User:

  • Environmental departments of emitting industries. Environmental departments of Autonomous Communities and City Councils,
  • R&D departments of engine manufacturers.
