Gas Chromatography Sampling Emissions
A SHEilds tutor Andrew Taylor, has written an article for AWE International, focusing on Gas Chromatography and sampling emissions. Andrew is somewhat of a specialist in this topic area, so the article is well worth reading! The article is quite in-depth covering a breadth of air quality standards and related issues.
Here’s a quick overview of the air quality standards within Andrew’s Gas Chromatography article:
- Air Quality Standards
- Sampling principles
- Choice of sampling method
- Technique and instruments
- The different approaches to monitoring stack emissions
- Periodic sampling of gases
- Isokinetic sampling
- In situ or extractive monitoring
- Remote sensing
- Microscopic analysis
- Gas liquid chromatography
- Mass spectrometry; and
- Atomic absorption spectrophotometry
Air Quality Strategy
The new Air quality Strategy for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland 2007 has been devised to set national air quality standards to an acceptable level in the interest to protect human health. The aim is to improve overall air quality for the above regions found within the UK. The policy will aid to achieve the air quality objectives as laid out in the agreed UK & EU Air quality limit values (AQL values).
