While witnessing the impact of climate change focus has moved towards reducing emissions and improving sustainability practices to better our environment. Several industries do contribute to emissions which is why governments and legislative bodies have put together emission regulations to control and monitor levels.
For industries this means more pollutants will require monitoring from a greater number of emitting sources - for example, mercury (Hg) is rapidly moving up the agenda. Advanced systems and methods will be required to measure lower and lower concentrations of pollutants as emission limits tighten. Increased accuracy will become paramount as pollutants such as nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4) and possibly Hg are introduced to trading markets in the EU and USA. The change will mean that once a monetary value comes into play, measurement accuracy becomes an economic target as well as an environmental one.
