NEW European Project Launch - IAQSense


The European commission launches a new project entitled IAQSense to address the ever growing concern of indoor air quality (IAQ) in closed environments such as buildings and vehicles. A consortium of 10 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a 3-year research program. The system will consist of nanotechnology-based sensors: spectrometer on chip, polar ionization detector, and molecule traces detector using piezo-cantilever based balance and integrated electronics for fast pattern recognition of a large variety of VOCs and hazardous compounds, clearly identified from each other.
