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.
