greenhouse gasses gas chromatography CO2 C2 C4 N2 methane H2 O2
Project description

Within the scope of research concerning the exchange of methane (CH4) and CO2 (two important greenhouse gases) with the atmosphere. A gass chromatograph, specially designed for the analysis of permanent gasses CO2, N2, O2, H2, CH4 and C2 up to C4 gasses, is being ordered. The desired GC has an excellent sensitivity and precision for the analysis of methane at ambient concentration (+/- 1,8 ppm).
