Optical gas imaging (OGI) has traditionally been a qualitative technology. Recent advancements in the technology are moving OGI towards quantitative methods. New quantitative features in the FLIR GF series cameras and QL320 tablet provide a much more efficient user experience and remove much of the uncertainty related to OGI surveys and resulting quantification of emissions. FLIR's new Q-mode captures radiometric OGI data, along with meta data provided by the user, into a single file forma...

Methane escape from natural gas distribution systems results not only in global warming, but also in economic loss. An estimate from the Boston region implies a financial damage of $90 million as about 15 billion cubic feet of natural gas escape from the distribution system annually (McKain et al., 2015). Mobile real-time measurements of methane in ambient air offer a fast and effective method to identify and quantify local methane emissions in urban areas. Between February and April, 2018...

As known European natural gas resources is declining and the EU is depending increasingly on imported natural gas. Consequently, diversification of the European natural gas supply has become necessary and this is being implemented as required by the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC. Under mandate M/475, CEN/PC 408 developed specifications for biomethane (i.e. EN16723-1 for injection into natural gas grids and EN16723-2 for transport fuel). Currently, the test methods cited in EN16723 are...

Biomethane is an important source of green and renewable energy. To allow injection of biomethane into the natural gas grid or the use as a vehicle fuel, it should meets the quality standards for natural gas. The timely and accurate measurement of the biomethane energy is of fundamental importance for users and distributors. The MicroGC technology supply features ideal for fast and accurate on-line analysis of biomethane and calorific value measurements. Minor organic contaminants like hyd...

Over the past 20 years, advances in modern ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry have forever changed the expectations of petroleum analyses. Facilitated by advances in ionization methods (that enable molecular-level analysis irrespective of initial or final boiling point), ultra-high resolution Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) routinely resolves and identifies tens-of-thousands of species (at the level of elemental composition assignment) in individua...

The quality of wastewater generated from industrial operations and municipalities is highly regulated and closely monitored. Traditional “oxygen demand” methods of determining wastewater quality can be time-consuming, costly, and less accurate. Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analysis offers a highly sensitive, non-specific measurement of organics present in a sample. Plants monitoring for TOC are better equipped to adjust their processes, protect capital equipment and meet effluent regulation...

The measurement of compounds in air using passive (diffusive) monitoring is widely recognized especially for long term (averaged) information on air quality.  The promulgation of EPA method 325 by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) validates this sampling technique.  This method is currently used in the investigation of compounds in air at the fenceline of selected industrial locations.   During development, EPA Method 325 (passive sampling) has been field tested including int...

Current spot checks are no longer satisfactory to avoid the potential for high-level contamination of rivers or estuaries from industrial waste. Governing environmental bodies can impose heavy fines on companies that routinely exceed the set limits, and even reserve the right to shut down the liable plant. This produces a requirement for online monitoring of multiple outlet streams from the plant, before and after potential dilution points. Monitoring the river for contamination from other...

A significant population of the world lives within the fertile river valleys and is affected directly by the quality of water. Increased urbanization and industrialization has led to a degradation of water quality in recent decades due to contaminants from several sources - industrial, agricultural and anthropogenic. Traditional methods that include time consuming lab analysis from point measurements often lose out on event detection and fail to establish a complete picture of the health of t...
