Continuous, reliable, and real-time measurement of the CO2 and N2O load is a must for emission producing companies (vs. the calculation of the source stream). In-situ solutions provide plants with an overview of the amount of greenhouse gases emitted at any time. GHG-Control records the CO2/N2O gas concentration and volume flow, and determines the total quantity precisely. GHG-Control does not involve the expense of recording the calculation basis, sampling and measurement of substance flows, and intermittent laboratory analyses, especially in the event of changing fuel qualities or fuel carbon content. It offers a direct route to lower costs for organisations that are required to report greenhouse gas emissions.
