Since October 1, 2015, the eNose network is operational in the Port of Amsterdam. The eNose network project (GeurInzicht) is an initiative by the Port of Amsterdam in cooperation with EPA North Sea Canal Area and the Province of North-Holland. These parties work together in this project with private companies active in the port and the Fire Department. The project aims to improve the quality of life in and around the port area. In 2016 the project group gained experience with the eNose network. The first annual report has been published by the Port of Amsterdam Authority.
This first annual report of the eNose Network provides a lot of information and insights. Also, all partners have learned a lot about the use of the eNose. There is more insight into what kinds of sources emit fragrance and where the possible sources are. It is also concluded, that there are some areas of the network where the density can be improved. Therefore, it is envisioned by the project group to expand the eNose network in 2018. This expansion will mainly focus on the area where the eNoses pick up most abnormal signals of changes in the air composition.Read More
