3 Contract No SMT4-CT Slide 3 The Hydrocarbex Project Overview of the Hydrocarbex Project Problems with Existing Sensors Cost: >€50,000 per unit (New sensor €3000 per sensor) Sensor calibrated for a given hydrocarbon Sensors prone to degradation and drift. Sensors affected by contamination or turbidity. Problems with Existing Sensors Cost: >€50,000 per unit (New sensor €3000 per sensor) Sensor calibrated for a given hydrocarbon Sensors prone to degradation and drift. Sensors affected by contamination or turbidity. AIM OF THE PROJECT To develop a sensor which can detect hydrocarbons in water to a level of 20 parts per billion AIM OF THE PROJECT To develop a sensor which can detect hydrocarbons in water to a level of 20 parts per billion
