Sara Janhäll, Daniel Bäckström and Lennart Gustavsson of project partner RISE have produced a report derived from A2.1.4* under WP2. Emissions of particles and organic compounds from small and medium scaled biomass combustion provides background information both on different emission standards used in combustion appliances and on the development of the particles from the combustion… Read More

Guillermo Guarnizo of project partner UC3M has provided an update illustrating the work progressing between February and November 2018 under WP2. After the completion of the A2.3.1 survey (November 2017), UC3M has focused attention on activity A2.3.3* related to FTIR spectroscopic techniques and primarily on the development of retrieval algorithms for identification and quantification of… Read More

Daniel Bäckström of project partner RISE who has provided some photos illustrating the work progressing under Activity 2.1.2. of WP2. For A2.1.2, INERIS, RISE and DTI will each perform on the INERIS Stack Simulator Facility solid PM and OGC measurements in accordance with EN_PME_TEST. Photo 1 shows the Intercomparison of the test method EN-PME-TEST performed… Read More

Francesco D’Amato of project partner CNR-INO has provided an update on the work progressing under WP1: Measurements of Ammonia mixing ratio for the assessment of the behaviour of Direct Absorption vs Derivative techniques One of the main problems of measuring the mixing ratios of gaseous molecular species in stacks is the interference due to the… Read More

Sara Janhäll of project partner RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) recently presented on the IMPRESS 2 Project at the 8th biennial meeting of the Gothenburg Air and Climate Centre. The event brought together people interested in issues ranging from air quality, to weather forecasting and climate change to discuss current and future areas of research… Read More

A new paper from the IMPRESS 2 Project has been published in Applied Spectroscopy. The thermal boundary layer effects on line-of-sight TDLAS gas concentration measurements by Zhechao Qu, Olav Werhahn and Volker Ebert of project partner PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) is now available from Applied Spectroscopy and also over on our Documents and publications page.  … Read More

Menne Schakel of project partner VSL has provided an update on the work progressing under WP3: A literature review “Uncertainty review of portable flow measurement techniques” was finalized with recommendations on how to improve flow measurements in actual stack conditions so that they are performed to the required standards. A model that follows EN 14181… Read More

In July 2018 Alouette completed and graduated her studies in aerospace engineering as a member of project partner TU Delft, Alouette completed her MSc work within the IMPRESS II project, under work package 3; “Flow uncertainty and impact on annualized mass emissions”. Flow measurement uncertainty due to S-Pitot sensor obstruction in narrow exhaust stacks was investigated… Read More
