Gas Analysis unveils its programme for 2024

As mentioned in a previous article, the 12th edition of GAS Analysis, the reference event for all those involved in gas analysis, will be held from 30 January to 1 February 2024, at Paris Porte de Versailles – Hall 4. It will be organised by the CFM (Collège Français de Métrologie)* in partnership with the Hyvolution exhibition.

The presidents of the event, Annarita Baldan from VSL and Martine Carré from Air Liquide, together with Cosimi Corleto, President of the CFM, will open the symposium, accompanied by an introduction to the challenges of gas analysis by Laurent Antoni of the CEA. In November, we interviewed the two chairs of the event. You can access our interview with Martine Carré here (in French) and Annarita Baldan here (in English).

A 100% H2 day

The first conferences session will follow the opening and will focus on hydrogen. Industrialists such as Siemens, Air Liquide, Engie, the DURAG group, the SIAD group and institutes such as the NPL and the VSL will be discussing the latest issues relating to the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier. In particular, in terms of assessing its purity, stability and the quality controls that need to be implemented throughout its life cycle.

This first day will provide an opportunity to present new instrumental measurement methods. These include the detection of impurities by plasma emission, the coupling of gas chromatography and optical spectroscopy technologies, etc. This will be followed by discussions between manufacturers of measuring instruments, suppliers of raw materials, users and all those involved in the hydrogen value chain as the fuel of the future.

The Gas Analysis programme is not restricted to hydrogen

Although the topic of hydrogen will be tackled as well during the following two days of the event, the Gas Analysis programme aims to be comprehensive on the subject of gas analysis.

For instance, there will be a workshop on measuring traces of water in gases (PrometH20 project) and a poster session. During the latter, participants will be able to talk directly to the experts presenting their work on the symposium’s five main themes: hydrogen as an energy carrier, innovations in gas metrology, the energy transition, and the study of air quality and climate.

Other conferences will focus on advances in gas metrology, industrial innovation (AI, data science, nanotechnologies, chemoresistance, etc.), the energy transition and air and climate quality.

Courses will also provide information on the steps involved in obtaining accreditation for gas analysis, good practice when handling hydrogen, and estimating measurement uncertainties when preparing gaseous reference materials.
