Title: Recovery Act - Real-Time Continuous Monitoring of Flare Combustion Efficiency and Emissions
Agency: DOE
Contract: 02-10ER85623
Award Amount: $140,870.00


There is currently no satisfactory solutions for real-time, continuous monitoring of are combustion efficiency and emissions. Since emission inventories are the foundation for efficiency controlling pollution's harmful effects, it is important to determine the combustion efficiency as well as the gas compositions and concentrations emitted from the area. In order to implement effective control and mitigation strategies and to improve U.S. industrial productivity, product quality, and energy efficiency, reliable are combustion efficiency and emissions data are needed. Argos Intelligence pro-poses the Advanced Remote Combustion Efficiency Monitoring (ARCEM) System, a low-risk, low- cost, novel approach for remotely measuring are combustion efficiency and quantifying they are emission products in real time. The ARCEM System combines advanced image processing with physical models to optimally extract are performance parameters from remote multi-spectral measurements. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: This program will result in a complete system for remotely determining industrial are combustion efficiency and remotely quantifying the minor (trace) emission products from areas in real-time. This technology has enormous commercial potential in the petrochemical, gas, and chemical markets for monitoring are stacks, cooling towers, and gas leaks, with additional applications in other industrial and military markets for the remote detection, identification, tracking, and concentration estimation of chem/bio warfare agents and other toxic industrial chemicals (such as chlorine, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide).
