AmbiSense Ltd, a spin out company from DCU, is delighted to announce that it is bringing to market, GasfluX ™ the world’s first continuous gas and flow monitoring device (patent pending) for ground-gas applications. The technology enables, real-time monitoring of landfills, brownfield sites, onshore O&G facilities and industrial sites.

AmbiSense has filed a patent for its new innovative technology development called GasfluX® which is the world’s first online, continuous gas and flow monitoring device designed specifically for ground-gas applications and incorporating their award-winning telemetry platform to deliver real-time site data from any location.

For many years, experts and practitioners have argued that continuous monitoring is an excellent way to quickly build up an accurate representation of ground-gas behaviour on contaminated land & landfill sites, fracking and other O&G facilities and on carbon sequestration projects. However monitoring of concentrations alone doesn’t always give the full picture and relying on spot flow-measurements and applying the ‘worst-case scenario’ approach often leads to sites being characterised overly conservative adding huge cost in terms of gas protection measures. By monitoring both flow and concentration continuously, practitioners can for the first time build datset’s that are less open to interpretation and that can be used to de-risk sites, reducing both costs and development time.

Also, by making the data available in real-time, practitioners can begin to build an accurate of ground-gas behaviour almost immediately, enabling better risk assessment, much faster reporting ultimately speeding up project delivery.

AmbiSense are launching the new product at the UK’s largest contaminated land expo in London on October 12th & 13th where Dr. Fiachra Collins (AmbiSense CTO) will be giving a talk entitled ‘Online, Adaptive Continuous Gas and Flow Monitoring’.
