Online Adaptive Gas + Flow monitoring for Ground-Gas Risk Assessment
Measuring ground-gas flows and concentrations is imperative in risk assessment of contaminated land. However the integrity of data is compounded by the disparity of methods employed and site conditions that heavily influence readings. To address these, a technology solution has been developed in conjunction with leading industry experts. AmbiSense CTO Dr. Fiachra Collins will describe this technology was applied in a recent UK case study and will discuss its applications in contaminated land, landfill and O&G sectors.
