Media Release of 21 March 2016
For Immediate Release
Ecotech Pty Ltd, global leaders in environmental monitoring, address the worsening global problem of nitrogen dioxide pollution by releasing a game changing advancement of technology.
At ARABLAB – the international show for tomorrow’s technology – Ecotech presented the Serinus 60, the direct nitrogen dioxide (NO2) analyser.
Head of Ecotech’s Research and Development, Grant Kassell, explained, “The Cavity Attenuated Phase Shift (CAPS) technology is a game changer. CAPS allows direct measurement of NO2, rather than the current practise of indirect calculation through a chemiluminescence analyser”.
In recent months, nitrogen dioxide has been at the forefront of concerns for air pollution in cities worldwide. Authorities have been forced to take drastic measures, such as odd-even number plate days in India, green taxes, car-scrapping and ride-sharing programmes to mitigate the problem. However, as urban populations, industry, vehicle ownership and transportation increase, so too in turn does nitrogen dioxide pollution.
Nicholas Dal Sasso, Managing Director of Ecotech, stated “Never has measurement of NO2 been more important, or higher on the agenda, for environmental protection. Nitrogen dioxide is one of the four critera gases that must be monitored and measured worldwide, precisely because of its harmful nature. Ecotech’s Serinus 60 is a direct, precise, rapid and affordable answer to the increasing global concerns of nitrogen dioxide.”
