FluxSense has worked with several petrochemical sites around the world in order to measure their total VOC emissions and to identify any hot-spots or leaks using.
The customer benefits from knowledge about their emissions and any significant leaks. With appropriate directed measures this can be used for efficient emission reductions which saves money and the environment. Industrial VOC emissions relates to several important issues such as air quality, climate change and health and safety. Results from various FluxSense studies world-wide show that the industry tend to significantly under-estimate their VOC emissions as compared to measurements.
Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and knowledge about the emissions are important for effective mitigation measures and for accurate input to climate models. FluxSense has measured methane emissions at several Swedish landfills during two decades to study time trends and the expected decay of emissions at final covered and active sites.
Water Treatment Plants
Water and sewage treatment plants are important emitters of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) which are both strong greenhouse gases.
FluxSense can measure emissions and make concentration mapping of both these gases using MeFTIR and Tracer Correlation methods. The results can be useful for effective emission reduction and to avoid public concerns regarding smell.
FluxSense has conducted many emission studies of single flares at petrochemical plants or refineries in order to quantify their emissions and combustion efficiency.
Since flares are known to give temporary high emissions of VOCs if poorly operated, our measurements can provide critical input for better control of flare emissions. We use a range of different optical techniques, such as SOF, MeFTIR, Thermal FTIR and Tracer Correlation for flare studies, depending on the customer needs.
