  • New insight into improving air quality measurements

    Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and King's College London have identified a mechanism which is responsible for under-reporting of peak nitrogen dioxide concentrations at some air quality monitoring stations, and the best ways to minimise this. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is an air pollutant formed when fuels are burned, ...

  • HPR-40 MIMS System Assists in Denitrification Studies

    Denitrification is the process carried out by bacteria that converts nitrites and nitrates to nitrogen, nitric oxide and nitrous oxide gases. Two of these gases have been linked with ozone layer depletion and global warming. Denitrification is an anaerobic process and occurs in environments where oxygen levels are depleted, such as within soils and groundwater. The Hiden HPR-40 membrane inlet ...
