Our AROMA technology will be supporting several newly funded air monitoring projects, which are part of the largest investment in community air monitoring in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) history. EPA announced last week that it will award $53 million to organizations in 37 states to fund more than a hundred community air monitoring projects. These projects were funded under the Enhanced Air Quality Monitoring for Communities Grant Competition, which was enabled by funds from the American Rescue Act ($20 million) and the Inflation Reduction Act ($30 million).
During the application process, Entanglement Technologies partnered with multiple organizations to monitor air toxics, also called hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Our AROMA instruments provide real-time, lab-quality, field and mobile measurements of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), allowing our partners to fill critical capability gaps in air quality monitoring applications without requiring an expert operator. We look forward to supporting current and future community air monitoring projects with this new funding. We will highlight each funded project as it kicks off, but you can read more about all of the awarded projects here.
