Emissions Analysis

Helping cultivators, consultants, engineers and public policy makers understand the molecular footprint of commercial cannabis by identifying, measuring, modeling, and assessing plant emissions.

Who we serve

Our clients include many of North America’s largest cannabis cultivators, stakeholders, and government regulators who need to quantify and qualify emissions profiles for any commercial cultivation space. Our process also gives cultivators and operators a clear picture of their emissions profile so they can achieve odor mitigation compliance.


By taking a quantitative and qualitative approach to our research, we provide you with the data and knowledge to achieve emissions compliance and make informed business decisions.

When you work with our Emissions Analysis team, you gain access to two of the nation’s leading cannabis emissions experts.


Alex Guenther, Ph.D.

Senior Scientist

An international leader with over 35 years of experience in atmospheric plant volatiles integrated research, Dr. Guenther lends his insight to address odor and emissions concerns for clients. Dr. Guenther has published more than 300 peer-reviewed scientific articles and led more than 40 integrative field studies to improve our understanding of terpenes and other biogenic emissions as they relate to air quality and climate

William Vizuete, Ph.D.

Chief Scientific Officer
Using high performance computers and three-dimensional simulations to model the atmosphere, Dr. Vizuete lends over 20 years of experience to help clients understand and mitigate the risks associated with emissions and air pollution. His research also lends valuable insights to our product development and helps policymakers establish effective strategies to improve air quality and create a healthier environment.


Research-driven analysis and consulting to understand a canopy’s emissions profile

When you fully understand the complete emission profile of an operation, you can make more informed decisions. That’s why we provide pioneering gas-phase emissions profiling and facility assessments. In addition, we offer atmospheric modeling, collaborative research with academic institutions, and services grounded in science and data.

Plant Emissions Research and Analysis

Our comprehensive VOC analysis capabilities enable highly-sensitive detection of over 200 cannabis plant volatiles, including terpenoids and organic sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen compounds. Using cutting-edge leaf enclosure studies, we can determine the types and volumes of site-specific terpenes and other compounds.

Because standard ambient air sampling reveals only a fraction of the canopy’s true emissions. Only through leaf enclosure studies and subsequent Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis can you truly measure your canopy’s actual emissions profile.

Air Dispersion Modeling

Profiling and assessment of canopy emissions, along with atmospheric modeling and strain-specific research, allows us to bridge the gap between science and compliance. Using custom modeling of site-specific atmospheric emissions, we can determine how much cultivation, processing, and manufacturing impacts air quality—or not.

Without a comprehensive understanding of emissions in general, cultivators and regulators can face negative impacts resulting from regulations passed without hard science and data. Our emissions modeling provides a factual, science-based assessment of the composition of emissions and their actual movement in the air—benefiting both cultivators and regulators.
