Entanglement Technologies’ Aurelie Marcotte and Pedro Benavides were on the ground in the Atlanta area this week using AROMA-ETO to monitor ethylene oxide (EtO) in a minivan outfitted as a mobile lab. AROMA-ETO was co-located at a National Air Toxics Trend Station (NATTS) site managed by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD) during the month of July. On Tuesday, after uninstalling AROMA-ETO from the NATTS site, the instrument was reinstalled in a rental minivan to begin mobile operations. The mobile lab recorded near real-time measurements of EtO in communities, urban background settings, and near commercial sterilization facilities to better understand ambient levels of EtO.
AROMA-ETO collects lab quality data of ethylene oxide in the field below 10 parts-per-trillion detection limits. In addition to ethylene oxide, AROMA-ETO provides analysis for other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including 1,3-butadiene, acrolein, methanol, and isopropanol.
