Recently, with the public concern for environment rising and its related various legal regulation enforced, the research works on reliability in specimen assay value and accuracy in analytical technique are ever increasing.
This laboratory, as an international certified testing institution (No. 364) by KOLAS (Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme), has carried out the analysis of heavy metal and microelement in solidified, liquefied, gaseous specimen for many years.
Particularly, this lab is possessed of measurement technology of combustion gas which is produced from air emission facilities, such as coal-fired electrical power plant and waste incinerator, etc. and classified mercury assay technology; in addition, this lab is carrying out various government-funded research projects on domestic air emissions and measurement of emission coefficient.
Further, this lab is possessed of technology and analysis instruments autonomously for analysis of heavy metal and element contained in the specimen of food, waste water and waste, drugs, etc. and also implementing the mineral test in the body through hair & blood analysis.
The advanced fusion technology research institute, on the basis of its excellent analysis technology, is carrying out the research on development of Analysis System of domestic technologies.
Most of the analysis instruments used at home are imported, so domestic capital outflow is in a serious situation. Accordingly, this research institute is developing Analysis system based on self-technology to substitute for such capital drain, among which the representative ones are Hg CEM (Continuous Emission Monitor)and Sorbent trap system. Hg CEM is a real-time gaseous mercury concentration measuring system, which makes it possible to do automatic analysis of mercuric compound contained in combustion gas in real-time by installing it at the chimney of air emission facilities. Hg CEM has a strong point in availability for real-time consecutive measurement and requiring a simple operation only. In addition, Sorbent trap system is a dry mercury measurement method, and this technology is easy to handle and requires less time for analysis in comparison with the wet measurement method(ASTM D-6784, US EPA 29, etc.)
