CMA Selects Picarro Gas Analyzers

Dec 11 2009 | 9:56am ET

The China Meteorological Administration (CMA), the government entity responsible for monitoring and measuring greenhouse gas emissions, will more than double the number of Picarro gas analyzers it uses for the job. The value of the deal was not revealed.

The CMA purchase order represents one of the largest deals in Picarro company history, and will, according to a Picarro statement, “dramatically expand the size and scope” of the CMA’s greenhouse gas monitoring network.

The CMA is responsible for accurately measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas mixing ratios in the atmosphere, including carbon dioxide, methane and related tracers such as isotopes and carbon monoxide. It chose Picarro analyzers because they are “accurate, portable and easy to use, and they require minimal calibration.”
