In mid-October, the Presto Lab at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) will use AROMA-ETO for mobile monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the Pittsburgh, PA, area. The AROMA technology will be deployed in Carnegie Mellon’s Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies Mobile Air Quality Lab, which houses several high-time-resolution and chemically specific pieces of equipment to identify emission sources. “We use the mobile laboratory to map both pollutant concentrations and impacts from specific emissions sources,” says Dr. Albert Presto, a Research Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and a member of the Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies at CMU. “AROMA-ETO will allow us to better quantify sources of air toxics and other novel pollutants in Pittsburgh.” The Presto Lab also deploys low-cost sensors for long-term air quality monitoring with high spatial coverage of neighborhoods in the Pittsburgh area.
AROMA-ETO is a high-performance chemical analyzer that provides near-real time measurements of ethylene oxide and other VOCs at part-per-trillion concentrations. The analyzer enables in-field, mobile, and long-term unattended VOC monitoring at the push of a button.
