Metrology for Biofuels

In order to anticipate the depletion of fossil resources (oil, gas, coal) and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, current governments are encouraging the development of biofuels, produced from non-fossil organic materials. The European Directive 2009/28/EC thus promotes the use of biofuels and other renewable energies in transport.

Metrology for ocean salinity and acidity

By absorbing nearly a third of CO2, the oceans play a crucial role in controlling the climate of our planet. However, the accumulation of CO2 in the oceans leads to a decrease in the pH of seawater, a phenomenon known as "ocean acidification".

Metrology for high-impact greenhouse gases

The term "greenhouse gas" (GHG) includes various gases naturally present in the atmosphere (CO2, CH4, N2O, O3) or resulting from human activity (CO2, CH4, CF4, SF6,...) and which have in common to absorb solar radiation re-emitted by the Earth's surface, thus contributing to global warming.
