Last week 21 eNoses and 4 windsensors were installed in the Muuga Port and Maardu region in Estonia. The innovative electronic nose sensors, or eNoses can be used to continuously monitor the chemical composition in ambient air. The eNoses are installed at various locations around terminals, industry and residential area to monitor both odorous and non-odorous gas emissions.
The positions of the eNoses can be changed, if necessary, depending on the area most problems are detected. A similar system operates in the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands since 2008 (We-nose).
“The Rotterdam port area now has 150 eNoses, and are planning to increase the number to around 300 eNoses in 2016. /…/ Partly due to this eNose network and cooperation of all stakeholders in the port area (EPA, companies, municipalities and port authority) there are less complaints,” explains Lennart Verhoef of Comon Invent, Business Development “ETV.

The eNose will appear on Dutch TV Doe Maar Duurzaam! on RTL7 on the 10th of April! Below you fill find the press release including the announcement.
“The eNose as helping hand in sustainable direction”
A smart port is a sustainable port and a sustainable port is the foundation for an economy where businesses grow and people in the surrounding area are safe and above all where it is pleasant to live. The eNose can contribute to the sustainability of the world ports. What the eNose is and how it can contribute in the port area, we hear of Simon Bootsma and Bianca Milan of Comon Invent.
Watch Sunday April 10th 12.30 Doe Maar Duurzaam! RTL 7 (Dutch TV)
Everything about the eNose is showed on Sunday, April 10th on the theme-broadcasting about the environment of Doe Maar Duurzaam!; an informative program about various developments and innovations in the sustainability sector. This can range from Energy to Sustainable Entrepreneurship and from Environmental to Construction. Doe Maar Duurzaam shows the overall picture of various sustainability aspects in order to raise awareness of sustainable opportunities in every aspect of daily life.
The replay will be broadcasted on Saturday, April 16th, 2016 at 13:30 hours in Doe Maar Duurzaam! RTL 7

Our exhaled breath contains more clues about the state of our health than most of us imagine. If there is so much information in the air that we breathe out, how then could we use technology to unlock it? Us humans have developed all sorts of technologies that help to expand our senses. But somehow we have made little progress to expand the sense of smell. Until now, that is.

The world is changing rapidly. Developments are coming one upon the other, more rapidly than ever before. This makes the future unpredictable, but also rich in opportunities, writes Carla Jong, environmental issues project manager and Nataly Katan, new business project manager, Port of Amsterdam.
In a number of different areas, transitions, evolutions, and reversals in trends are occurring, which have an impact on the port – for example the energy transition, raw materials shortages, the rise of the circular economy, the continuing increase in scale in shipping, urbanisation and new technologies such as big data, robotics and 3D printing.
These kinds of developments have a critical impact on which raw materials will be important, the flow of logistics, which locations will come onto or fall off the radar and what knowledge will be valuable. All this adds up to a dynamic environment, in which it is difficult to predict what the nature, scope and speed of developments will be, and where exactly new opportunities will emerge. Flexibility is key.
We will be sharing our eNose technology knowledge at TEDx Johannesburg South Africa in two weeks! Very excited! Our CEO Simon Bootsma will talk about the online electronic nose technology that is now the base of air quality monitoring networks. eNose networks are operational in the ports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Sohar, and Durban, amongst others. In a unique collaboration with the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam, eNose technology is also being used for the development of electronic noses for medical diagnosis.

By integrating spirometry with the eNose technology of Comon Invent, a new diagnostic method to detect the difference between the breath of healthy people and the breath of patients with asthma, COPD or lung cancer is available. The SpiroNose method also has the ability to distinguish COPD patients from both asthma and lung cancer patients. The Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam leads research with the SpiroNose method.
