Affordable ammonia, methane, nitrous oxide

and CO² monitoring in one affordable device

Drager C300
  • Densely populated countries are very concerned about ammonia and methane: ability to show a reduction trend will enhance a ‘licence to operate’ for all animal farms.
  • Controversy ammonia emissions Dutch livestock still unresolved. Solution must be found. Other countries have the same problem.
  • Live monitoring is the most robust way to quantify and manage emissions, for which ubiquitous use of ‘low cost’ sensors is needed.
  • Ammonia monitoring is the priority now, but methane monitoring is around the corner. Nitrous Oxide (N2O or “lachgas”) is also of interest (WUR).
  • Animal welfare impact assessment of air quality in barns now possible. Concentrations of ammonia can impact the health of the heard in a stable. Warnings of risk concentration in the air will enable timely response.
  • Most Electro-chemical sensor elements need to be replaced every 18 months with high cost of ownership.
  • Competitive advantages:
    • Lower total cost of ownership
    • Simultaneous ammonia & methane & N2O measurements
    • Advanced data platform
  • Graphene FET for measuring ammonia, methane & nitrous oxide
  • Contaminant-free, monolayer graphene electrochemical sensor
  • Single-atom-thick layer conformity
  • High accuracy, low detection limit (< 1ppm)
  • Sampling frequency: 15 minutes
  • Additional CO² measurement via seperate sensor in same housing
  • Service life: 5 years
