IMG_7846In the port of Rotterdam, an area where industry and city are fused together, a unique air monitoring system is used to optimize the living and working environment. A network of nearly one hundred electronic noses, planned to be expanded to 300 e-noses by 2016, constantly monitors changes in air composition throughout the port. Tank storage provider Vopak is one of the early adopter of the groundbreaking technology used in the we-nose network. Jos Steeman, Managing Director at Vopak, explains why.

Norman Hendriks News

On September 13, 2012 the winner of the Energy Globe Award will be chosen in Vienna. One of the three nominees of this international environmental award is the innovation of the Dutch company Comon Invent: The eNose.

The eNose, short for electronic nose is a small device which continuously sniffs-out the ambient. The eNose is online and its data is remotely accessible. The eNose is applicable to monitor and guarding of applications with the potential of gas emissions that may pose a risk of odour nuisance, environmental damage or hazardous situations.

For example caused by a leak at a company in the port of Rotterdam area, leading to odour complaints in the adjacent residential areas. eNoses constantly ‘sniff’ the environment and give qualitative information about the air composition.
