Read the full story on Japan 2 Earth - Carbon Utilization: Toshiba Develops New Sensor for Analyzing Mixed Gas
Toshiba has developed a technology capable of simultaneously measuring the concentration of three or more substances in a mixed gas. This advancement not only eliminates the need for bulky equipment but also enables analysis at a remarkable speed: 150 times faster than conventional methods. This marks the world's first real-time technology capable of analyzing three or more substances in mixed gas.
Toshiba's technology is anticipated to make a valuable contribution to decarbonization initiatives through carbon capture and utilization. The company aims to make this technology available for practical implementation by 2026.
The technology utilizes a compact sensor unit that integrates multiple temperature sensors, electrical circuits, and other crucial components onto a single substrate. When this sensor unit is exposed to a mixed gas, it measures the temperatures of each substance present. It then derives highly accurate concentration values by applying a unique calculation method.
