Developing real-time, remote, low-cost #airpollution #sensors? Singapore government is interested...

Industries are located closer to residential areas from land use intensification, and despite the best efforts of pollution control measures to comply with emission standards, residual or fugitive emissions of smell cannot be totally eliminated. When NEA receives feedback on smell incidents, officers will be dispatched to the site to collect air samples for lab analysis and/or to deploy Gastec detector tubes for onsite identification of chemicals. Due to the rapid dispersal of the volatile, odour-causing chemicals, by the time the officers reach the scene, the current sampling and detection measures are often unable to capture sufficient data to identify the chemicals contributing to the smells. The relatively low odour threshold values of most chemicals increase the challenge of detecting and identifying the chemical. While there are air analysers with high sensitivity, s...
