ET supplied analysers equip Birmingham 'Supersite'
The NERC funded investment will see eight universities led by the NERC Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) create the network of advanced A Q monitoring instruments to detect harmful air pollutants and their sources in greater detail than ever before. The research will provide essential information that will affect policy decisions which will lead to cleaner, safer, air.
As well as analysers to detect toxic air pollutants, the network includes new instruments to detect a variety of greenhouse gases and ozone-depleting chemicals, in order to help the UK comply with legally-binding targets set out in the Climate Change Act.
For the Birmingham site, ET have supplied MCERTS approved SO2, direct NO2, NOy Teledyne API analysers and two Los Gatos Research enhanced performance analysers for the measurement of CH4, CO2, CO & H2O and NH3, featured in the photo shown.
The network is due to be operational by the end of 2018.
