Astrium and its partners launch a new Greenhouse Gas Emissions Measurement Service
This greenhouse gas Emissions Measurement Service takes readings of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane gas concentrations, which are fed into an atmospheric and transport model to determine the CO2 equivalent emissions at a national level, with associated uncertainties and identify the sources of these emissions.
Customers subscribing to the service will be supplied regularly (quarterly, monthly or more frequently if requested) with the following information:
They will be guaranteed a high and consistent quality of service based on a service level agreement.

Astrium will demonstrate its newly developed greenhouse gas (GHG) Emissions Measurement Service for London during July and August 2012. Our London Pilot project combines ground measurements from a network of 4 sensors around London, airborne measurements campaigns and spaceborne data collection. On top of that, The Astrium Bus will also house a mobile GHG sensor. The bus will be driven around a fixed route every day to detect GHG concentrations at road level.
