Fugitive emission technique validation

Supporting development and validation of emissions monitoring technologies

NPL's controlled release testing facility independently validates instrument accuracy, adds national traceability and improves performance. Unique features include:

  • Fully transportable, modular system for testing products over a variety of emission landscapes by accurately replicating specific source characteristics.
  • Management of complete instrument validation projects, from choosing a suitable test site to validation test protocol design.
  • Versatile system that can validate emissions measurement from drones up to satellites.

Our expertise and experience in regulatory compliance, measurement standard development and instrumental optimisation means NPL is ideally placed to advise and guide you through emissions monitoring system and sensor development.

Save money and add value

Demonstrate the versatility and integrity of your product through a fully scalable, transportable and cost-effective system that replicates gas emission rates and characteristics as found in industrial and agricultural scenarios. More cost-effective than in-house methods, the facility can be transported to your sites making independent validation of your monitoring easy and more convenient.

Features of this service include:

  • Management of complete instrument validation projects, from choosing a suitable test site to validation test protocol design.
  • Globally transportable and deployable, modular facilities for testing products over a variety of emission landscapes by accurately replicating specific source characteristics.
  • A wide range of emissions monitoring methods can be validated:
    • Differential Absorption LiDAR (DIAL)
    • Solar occultation flux (SOF)
    • Mono/bistatic open path systems
    • (Quantitative) Optical Gas Imaging (Q)OGI
    • Hyperspectral imaging
    • (Mobile) tracer correlation,
    • Aircraft and satellite measurements.
  • A wide range of gas species can be emitted, such as methane, propane (VOCs), carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, ammonia.
  • Large range of release rates g/h to 100 kg/h (gas dependent).
