Research-driven analysis and consulting to understand your canopy’s emissions profile
When you fully understand the complete emission profile of your 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 research and analysis
Why does this matter?
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
Why does this matter?
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.
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.
WHERE ACADEMICS MEETS BUSINESS ECONOMICS
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.
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.
