Brevetti+ is the incentive for the economic enhancement of patents, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) and managed by Invitalia spa (National Agency for investments attraction and enterprices development). ENVINT has proposed the incentive for the equipment PAS06/15 intended for the sampling of atmospheric pollutants by passive samplers. The innovation consists of an appropriate combination of inlets which, under control of electronics, select the sampling of passive samplers according to time sequences programmed by the user.
The project consists of several activities. They include a market research addressed to the identification of potential users in the world and to the development of new applications resulting from the flexibility of PAS06/15 in solving monitoring problems in ambient atmospheres, indoor pollution as well as in urban, industrial and remote sites. The instrument will be updated in order to incorporate sensors and in order to improve electronics and software. The instrument will be used for the detection of Ozone concentration in the expected 8-hours maxima as suggested by the current regulation in most Counties and will be used to solve problems related to the protection of cultural heritage. This project is carried out in collaboration of University of Rome 2 “Tor Vergata”, with the National Research Council (Institute for Atmospheric Pollution, and SGR Research. Elettronica & Automazione will provide the new electronics and software, in addition to optimization of mechanical parts.
