Chile has new technology to measure ozone emissions

The modern instrumentation is only available in 14 countries in the world and is used to measure the presence of this harmful gas in the atmosphere.

The project, developed by the CENMA together with the state, is supported by research by the Universidad de Chile foundation.

Chile presented new equipment to more precisely measure emissions of ozone, a gas that is harmful to both animals and plants, in an important step forward in terms of the environment. It is a standard reference photometer (SRP), the first of its kind in South America and one of the 14 that exist in the world.

This new technology will be installed in a modern laboratory at the National Environment Center (CENMA) and was presented by Universidad de Chile to provide more precise information on tropospheric ozone, in addition to supporting the development of the country’s environmental policies.

The project, developed by the CENMA together with the state, is supported by research by the Universidad de Chile foundation and will allow the CENMA to position itself as a center that is both a national as well as an international reference.
