Greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide pose an enormous threat to the environment. Climate change is not something far off in the future that we should simply reflect upon, it is happening as we speak. At Gasmet, we realize the crucial role we play in the global effort to mitigate climate change and preserve nature by providing high-tech gas analysis tools for researchers and research groups all over the world.
A Better Understanding of Climate Change and the Environment
Greenhouse gases cause changes in the radiative balance of the Earth by trapping some of the outgoing energy. This affects the balance between the energy received from the sun and emitted from the Earth and results in changes to the global climate and weather. This in turn has a huge effect on the environment. To help you understand the mechanisms behind these greenhouse gases, we manufacture gas analysis solutions that help protect the environment. Understanding how land and livestock management can affect the balance of these gases is often the basis of research. Our state-of-the-art gas analyzers for environmental monitoring support customers in reaching their research target in a reliable and cost-efficient manner. As a high-tech company, we recognize the power of technology and believe that our solutions can help change the direction of global warming by supporting climate change research.
Gas analysis in a variety of applications
- Biological and abiological processes in the soil represent a major source of greenhouse gases. Measuring soil flux — the exchange of gases between soil and the atmosphere — such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) is an important part of climate change research.
- Ruminant livestock generates a significant proportion of anthropogenic GHG emissions, especially methane (CH4), due to their digestive process. Measuring these greenhouse gases from livestock with a portable multigas analyzer gives researchers tools to understand and analyze these processes on the field.
- Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a method of reducing greenhouse gas emissions of power plants. Carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed into chemical solvents consisting of amines or carbonates in a process called ‘scrubbing’. Our CEMS system can be used to monitor that the CO2 capturing is working properly at the plant.

Proven Tools for Greenhouse Gas Measurements
Gasmet is known for its world-class gas monitoring products which are widely used by the research community all over the world. Our products are used by professionals who value reliable, robust and cost-efficient technology, all the way from the Amazon to the Arctic. For example, our analyzers make it possible to get a better understanding of the carbon balance of biofuel farming or to study methane production in ruminants. Every unit that we sell contributes to an enhanced understanding of the global GHG balance and can support the objective of lower emissions in the future.
We provide two field-deployable FTIR-based analyzers for continuous multicomponent gas analysis: GT5000 Terra and DX4015. With these analyzers, it is possible to measure up to 50 gases simultaneously, and there is no need for separate sampling. This creates immense time savings as the results can be viewed immediately. Avoiding separate sampling is also cost-effective as no consumables are required for the sampling process. The wireless operation and quick set-up ensure maximum usability on the field, even in wet and dirty environments. GT5000 Terra is also lightweight (9.4 kg), splash-proof (IP54-rated) and battery-powered. The sample cell is in ambient temperature, providing low energy consumption for maximum battery life while also minimizing the analyzer’s warm-up time. Our DX4015 is a perfect analyzer for measurements in high humidity conditions due to its sample cell, which is heated to 50 °C. This also provides temperature stability in changing conditions.

Complete Solution for Environmental Research – Gas Analyzer and Software
Gasmet’s gas analyzers are reliable, easy to use and operated with the Calcmet software. The software collects, stores and visualizes the FTIR spectra of the sample gas and analyzes the concentrations of gas components. This software is designed to maximize portability and ease of use, enabling one-click measurements and immediate results.
FTIR Technology for Gas Analysis
One of the most reliable and flexible technologies for gas analysis is the FTIR, which stands for Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. It is a powerful gas measurement technology for the simultaneous measurement of multiple gases. All of the gases in the sample can be measured simultaneously because the entire infrared spectrum is scanned at once. This makes it possible to analyze, identify and quantify even more gas components after the initial measurements.

SOIL FLUX MEASUREMENT REPORT
This study report compares six different technologies for measurements of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the soil. The devices and measurement methods were evaluated and compared by conducting experiments to measure absolute concentrations of GHGs (CO2, CH4 and N2O), as well as the fluxes of CO2 from artificial soils. Read the report and find out the agreement between different measurement technologies and suitabilities for GHG flux measurements from soil.
