Abstract

The protection of environment, in a specific manner air component, is one of the most important objectives established by national and international organizations. Air pollutants are generally detected by electronic instrumentation containing dedicated units from capturing to processing and displaying. With the deterioration of anthropic activities due to, for example, increasing of car traffic, increasing of heavy industrial activities, and subsequent greenhouse effects, the nature of required value becomes very complex and attention must be paid to “stealth” pollutants and mechanisms that produce them. That is why, beyond traditional pollutants, attention must be paid to specific classes of pollutants such as dusts vectoring fixed in inodorous gases, and other components included in gaseous substances as dioxins and furans. This paper illustrates results of experimental activities within a review approach for detecting pollutants based on advanced technology using nanoparticle through helium microwave-induced plasma, sensors exploiting perovskite structures and thermography for detecting harmful gases. Long-term detection of dioxins is also illustrated.
