  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...
