Case History PyxisGC BTEX – Detection of Traffic-related Air Pollution

One of the main air pollution sources is related to vehicle traffic and is emitted by vehicle exhausts, fuel evaporation, and various sources such as brakes, tires, and road dust. Moreover, traffic-related air pollution generates substances that undergo chemical-physical transformation processes that lead to the formation of secondary pollutants in the atmosphere: new chemical species which are often more toxic and of a wider range than the original compounds

In 2020 Pollution Analytical equipment carried out continuous monitoring of BTEX levels in highly trafficked areas. In order to perform this analysis, it was decided to install a PyxisGC BTEX unit at Highway 401 (the busiest in North America) in order to perform a comparison with other analytical methods.
