Abstract: Project SIMPAS is supported by Regione Toscana (POR CREO FESR 2007-2013), with the aim of developing two analyzers, one for the measurement of H2S concentration in the exhaust gases of geothermal plants, the second one for the measurement of dioxines concentration in the exhausts of waste incinerator plants. Both instruments will be based on spectroscopic techniques.
The Consortium which carries out the Project is composed by:

National Institute of Optics of the National Research Council (INO-CNR), Florence
LENS, European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy, University of Florence
National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology, Pisa
Scienza Industria Tecnologia S.r.l., Pisa
EcoFutura S.r.l., Monsummano Terme (PT)

Project SIMPAS has a total budget of € 2.256.833, of which € 1.760.329 are supplied by Regione Toscana. The Project started on April 12, 2010, and has been closed on April 11, 2012.

The results of the SIMPAS Project have been shown in an event which has been held on May 31, 2012, 10:30-13:30, at LENS, Aula Querzoli, Polo Scientifico di Sesto Fiorentino, Via N. Carrara 1, 50019 Sesto Fiorentino (FI)
