Since 1995, the SAM team is specialized in environmental measurement of polluted atmospheres.

Original in its research on environmental odors, it also conducts research on quality of indoor air and gaseous emissions from waste recovery processes.
Metrology of the air quality in urban areas across the neighborhood is being developed.

Air pollution is the cause of more than 350,000 premature deaths in the EU each year. This is a pollution which can not be ignored, and which has a major sanitary impact worldwide.

Monitoring of polluted atmospheres is essential to the understanding of phenomena and development of improved air quality plans.

"To monitor the air quality and to identify the pollutants emissions is the fisrt step of actions."
