[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The latest UK-made spectroscopic equipment that uses light to measure the concentration of fine dust-causing substances (nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide, etc.) emitted from workplaces such as factories will be introduced.
The National Institute of Environmental Research announced that it will introduce DIAL, a next-generation measurement equipment manufactured by the UK National Physical Laboratory, to effectively monitor and reduce fine dust emitted from industrial sites.
The equipment uses light to remotely measure air pollutants from power plants and incinerators.
The price of the equipment is 6.2 billion won, which will be purchased from this year's supplementary budget on fine dust, and will be used from March 2021 after on-site measurement.
Because this equipment is installed and operated on vehicles, it is more competitive than existing fine dust measuring equipment, which needs to be climbed and measured in a pair of two people.
In addition, by using spectroscopy to measure remotely, the concentration of air pollutants emitted can be checked at any time in real time without having to go directly to each site.
