Iron - Horizon 2020 project
IRON is a project funded by the European commission under the HORIZON 2020 Framework Programme. The aim of the project is to develop and commercialise high performance handheld device for gas measurement. Achieving laboratory class performance for sub-parts per billion (ppb) gas detection is possible through the use of proprietary mid-infrared laser spectroscopy combined with novel patented photoacoustic technology. IRON device responds to growing demand for affordable, rapid, portable, sensitive and selective instruments to enable on-site detection of hazardous chemicals in cargo containers. It prevents worker exposure to the harmful volatile chemicals caused by fumigants and off-gassing of freight. The technology itself is very versatile enabling a plethora of new applications from cargo container safety, indoor air quality monitoring, hidden person detection, explosives and narcotics detection to occupational safety, odour analysis, unknown chemicals identification and many other applications.
