Rotterdam uses E-noses to monitor air quality

noses

In order to monitor the air in the Rijnmond area, the port of Rotterdam has installed 250 E-noses, electronic noses monitoring any changes in the composition of the air, before it becomes a problem.

The we-nose network allows companies, municipal authorities and the Environmental Protection Agency to respond faster to emissions of unpleasant or dangerous gases, significantly contributing to improving the safety, health and appeal of the port area and its environs.

More specifically, the Rijnmond DCMR uses the network to monitor the environmental quality. The DCMR control room monitors all e-noses. If changes in the air composition are detected, the control room investigates the cause, for example with a visit to the location. Once the cause is known, the company can take measures, and if necessary those in the surrounding area are informed.
