Ground-breaking continuous greenhouse gas measurement

Aug 13 2020 Read 612 Times

MIRICO Ltd announce their new open path ORION® instrument designed for the continuous and autonomous measurement of greenhouse gasses. A single instrument can measure emissions across a facility, providing temporally and spatially resolved data, enabling a unique level of insight into greenhouse gas emissions. Currently available for methane, carbon dioxide or a combination of both, the ORION® instrument can provide real-time concentration data for a facility, for example landfills, wetlands, agricultural sites or industrial oil and gas facilities.

The ORION® system uses MIRICO’s patented Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy (LDS), a fundamentally new technique which brings a number of advantages including the ability to make precise and accurate measurements in all weathers such as rain, snow and fog.

To get the best performance from the ORION®, between 4-8 retroreflector corner cube mirrors are situated around the area of interest. While the instrument is designed for safe areas, the retroreflectors and the laser itself (which is completely eye safe) can be used in hazardous areas.

The talented team at MIRICO are working to incorporate the advantages of LDS into other ground-breaking instruments in the development pipeline. Environmental scientists and industrial users will soon benefit from open path ammonia and hydrogen sulphide instruments, as well as an extractive stable carbon isotopic ratio Libra instrument.
