  • N2O: Not one of the usual suspects

    Nitrous oxide is better known to the public for inducing giggles in dentists’ offices than for wreaking havoc on Earth’s protective ozone layer. It bears little resemblance to the perpetrators of ozone-layer destruction currently regulated under the international Montreal Protocol agreement— those chemicals all contain chlorine or bromine atoms, unlike nitrous oxide. But now that global actions ...

  • California Air Resources Board Purchases Additional N2O/CO Analyzers from Los Gatos Research

    Los Gatos Research (LGR), the leader in precision trace gas analyzers, has received an order for five more of the company's unique N2O/CO (nitrous oxide/carbon monoxide) trace gas analyzers from the California Air Resources Board (CARB). These particular instruments (part of LGR's acclaimed Enhanced Performance series) deliver extremely stringent performance specifications, including better than ...

  • US introduces new mandatory measurement and reporting of greenhouse gases

    Tough new EPA rules mean vehicle and engine manufacturers will be required to measure and report CH4 and N2O emissions from model year 2011. In April 2009 the US EPA proposed a new mandatory greenhouse gas reporting program. Although the sheer volume of CO2 in the atmosphere means that it is by far the biggest contributor to the greenhouse effect, there are other gases that also have a measurable ...

  • Nitrous oxide is now top ozone-layer damaging emission

    According to new research, emissions of anthropogenic nitrous oxide (N2O) are now causing more damage to the ozone layer than those of any controlled ozone depleting substance and this is projected to remain the case for the rest of this century. The study suggests that limiting N2O emissions could help both the recovery of the ozone layer and tackle climate change. Many ozone-depleting ...

  • Medical gas analyser gets thumbs up

    Still within 18 months of launch, the new Geotech G210 piped medical gas analyser is receiving positive user reviews. It is joined by the Geotech G200 ambient N2O gas analyser and the Geotech G100 CO2 incubator gas analyser. Geotech asked Ian Buckingham, Regional QC (MGPS) to review the Geotech G210 medical gas analyser supplied by GEM Scientific – which replaces the earlier Geotech FP99. ...

  • Often-overlooked yet potent pollutant nitrous oxide poses Ozone and climate risks, UN warns

    Emissions of nitrous oxide (N2O), an often-overlooked yet potent gas, could nearly double by 2050 and thus potentially undermine gains in the ozone layer recovery and exacerbate climate change. Drawing Down N2O to Protect Climate and the Ozone Layer, a new report by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), warns that nitrous oxide is now the most important ozone-depleting emission and the third most ...

  • New Product Launched - The atmosFIR CEM

    The atmosFIR CEM is a complete emissions monitoring system incorporating the atmosFIR 19" FTIR analyser. As completely hot and wet emissions measurement, atmosFIR CEM is ideal for complete measurement of multiple gases from applications such as incineration and power. A standard gas suite of NO, NO2, N2O, SO2, NH3, HCl, CH4, O2, CO2 and H2O is provided, but with the powerful FTIR analyser, ...

  • Early abatement more cost effective according to new climate model

    Global warming potential (GWP) is used to measure the relative effect on the climate of a tonne of a greenhouse gas, such as methane, relative to the reference gas, carbon dioxide. New research suggests greater accuracy and economic flexibility can be achieved by using the marginal impact of each unit of GHG emissions over the projected time horizon rather than applying an average or fixed index. ...
