Passive Air Services
Bureau Veritas offers an inexpensive and easy-to-use method to monitor for trace levels of atmospheric pollutants in ambient air using our All-Season Passive Air Sampling System (PASS). The PASS units are compact, portable and require low maintenance. The PASS units are ideal for remote and rural locations – they require no electricity, perform under extreme weather conditions, and can be shipped anywhere in the world. We test the returned samplers for multiple contaminants, including SO2, H2S, O3, NO2, NOX, NH3, 1, 3 -Butadiene and VOCs (Including BTEX).
In Canada, Bureau Veritas is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to ISO/IEC 17025 for tests and matrices required for passive air analysis. Our Passive Air Monitoring group supports petroleum refineries, upgraders and petrochemical facilities with the strict testing, supply, and sampling schedule required by EPA 325A, EPA325B. Our passive air monitoring program is developed in accordance with the Regulations Respecting Reduction in the Release of Volatile Organic Compounds (Petroleum Sector), available at: https://pollution-waste.canada.ca/environmental-protection-registry/regulations/view?Id=147.
