Substantial technological advances to meet the growing regulatory scrutiny of a wide variety of pollutants have taken place over the past 50 years. In the last few years, the increased complexity in regulations in developed countries has been even more accelerated, challenging the chemical process industries (CPI) and their suppliers of air-monitoring equipment to reach new heights. In addition, developing...
