|Title:||QUANTIFICATION OF A PRECISION POINT SOURCE FOR GENERATING CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS|
|Published:||June 10, 2011|
|Abstract:||This study provides an analysis of the uncertainty of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from an 8 MW natural gas burner. A precise and accurate point source for industrial quantities of carbon dioxide can be used to evaluate the performance of stack gas carbon dioxide measurement equipment. Uncertainties of individual measurement components were considered and their contribution to the overall carbon source uncertainty was evaluated to show where greatest improvements could be achieved. It was demonstrated that less than one percent carbon dioxide generation measurement uncertainty was possible using readily available components, facilitating the use of the fire laboratory as a test-bed for precision point source exhaust stack measurements.|
