Gases released from landfills or dump yards such as H2S, NH3, TVOCs, CH4, CO, etc. are hazardous to human health. They may affect the nervous system and cause irritation to our sensory systems.
In addition to the adverse health effects, these gases also cause inconvenience to the nearby locality due to their foul smell. Continuous monitoring of these gases helps to inhibit their diffusion in residential areas.
Real-time monitoring is necessary for taking precautionary steps against the uncontrollable spread of odour due to dynamic weather conditions.
