The IMPRESS 2 project has launched a guidance document describing the typical uncertainty of dTDLAS measurements (Task 1.4). The PTB task was to test HCl monitoring optical spectrometer for the future underpinning of technique development. PTB validates the dTDLAS method in absorption cells and investigate the influence of heterogeneous effects on amount fraction measurements. This… Read More

  A successful final stakeholder meeting for the IMPRESS 2 project was held earlier this month. Project Co-Ordinator Rod Robinson (NPL) took the stakeholders through an introduction to the project, and this was followed by presentations on WP1 by Marc Coleman (NPL); WP2 by Isaline Fraboulet (INERIS), Francesca Hugony (ENEA), Ville Ulvila (VTT), Guillermo Guarnizo… Read More

Francesca Hugony of project partner ENEA provided a poster for the 9th National Conference on Particles Emissions / IX Convegno Nazionale sul Particolato Atmosferico – PM2020 (PM2020 The poster Campagna sperimentale per la messa a punto di un sistema innovative per il campionamento del PM prodotto dalla combustione di biomassa legnosa (Italian) is available… Read More

Francesco D’Amato of project partner CNR-INO with colleagues from INERIS have produced a paper Optical detection of ammonia inside a stack: Comparison of different techniques. The quantitative detection of pollutants in industrial emissions, in particular the emissions of biomass burners, requires different types of analyzers. Optical devices are usually sensitive to the transparency and dirtiness… Read More

Zhechao Qu of project partner PTB recently presented a poster on work under the IMPRESS 2 project at the Third International Workshop on Oxy-Fuel Combustion from March 4th to 5th, 2020 in Montabaur, Germany.   The poster, Effects of the spatial heterogeneity of gas matrix and thermal boundary layers on absolute TDLAS HCl measurements in… Read More

Gabriele Migliavacca of project partner ISSI (Innovhub – Stazioni Sperimentaliper L’Industria) has been interviewed on Italian national TV (RAI 3) where he explains how the dilution chamber works;  VID-20200204-WA0000.mp4 Within the activities of the project, a dilution chamber method has been compared to a dilution tunnel and heated filter plus impinger method. Online and offline SVOCs… Read More

ENEA have issued a press release about the dilution method set up in the IMPRESS 2 project that has been published in three major Italian newspapers; Sole 24 Ore, Corriere della Sera and Repubblica) as well as many online news outlets including La Stampa and Citta. Francesca Hugony of ENEA states that there is much… Read More

Francesco D’Amato of project partner CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) recently had a letter published in the January 2020 edition of the monthly Informatore, magazine of COOP (page 30) – a chain of supermarkets in the Tuscany region of Italy. The magazine looks at many subjects, including environmental topics. In the November 2019 issue a… Read More

Javis Nwaboh of project partner PTB recently presented a poster on an aspect of the project at the 29th Deutscher Flannentag conference 17-18 Sep 2019 at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany. The poster, Mid-IR ICL based TDLAS spectrometer dedicated to monitor HCl concentration in combustion emissions, is a presentation of PTBs direct tunable diode laser absorption… Read More
