BC CLEAR Projects 2008-2009 (funding start dates) > Identification and Monitoring of Airborne Volatile Organic Compounds

Identification and Monitoring of Airborne Volatile Organic Compounds

posted on 6:54 PM, July 6, 2016

Project leader: Konrad Walus

This project proposes to develop novel sensor technology for characterizing and quantifying volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. The devices will be integrated into the exiting monitoring network, which covers a wide geographical range across the province. As a result, the data collected by the sensors can be used to locate the associated pollution sources. The information acquired with these sensors will help enforce the BC Air Action Plan, which has identified VOCs as one of the worst pollutants in BC.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
