Air Quality Testing (Emission monitoring)
Air quality is affected by many types of pollutants that are emitted from various sources, including stationary and mobile. Air emissions from marine industry, have been associated with negative effects on humans and the environment, and have been subjected to international and/or regional regulations. Emissions from vessels, port operations, and related land traffic must be monitored.
Spectrumlabs provides emissions monitoring for:
- Stationary source emissions – Manual determination of ways concentration of particular matter.
- Determination of the mass concentration of total gaseous organic carbon–Flame ionization detector method.
- Sampling and determination of NOx – Nitrogen oxides, SOx – Sulphur Oxides, , CO2 – Carbon Dioxide, , O2 (Oxygen), H2S – Hydrogen sulfide, CH2O – Formaldehyde, CO – Carbon Monoxide, , NO2 – Nitrogen dioxide.
- Sampling and Determination of the total emission of As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sb, Ti and V.
Stationary Source Emission
Sampling and determination.
- Particulate Matter (PM)
- Total organic carbon
- NOx, Sox, CO2, O2, H2S.
- As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sb, Ti and V.
- Soot Determination.
For the purpose of International Convention for the Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships, MARPOL Annex VI, limits the main air pollutants contained in ships exhaust gas.
