The grant will give them the opportunity to test whether their PAS-WRAP technology can be used to detect methane leaks in oil and gas extraction facilities. The project is based on a new approach to gas trace detection that offers high sensitivity and high selectivity in a robust design suitable for in-field applications (patent filed). Thanks to this Demonstrator grant, Avci, Iannuzzi and their team will engage with all the different stakeholders in the value chain and explore whether the current prototype can be made to meet the market requirements.


The board of NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences has granted 53 projects within the programmes Demonstrator, Open Technology Programme, Partnership Domain AES - Dunea - Vitens: Sand Filtration and Take-off.
