FortisBC Energy Inc. is exploring novel technologies and methods for mercaptan monitoring to detect natural gas leakage in industrial, field, and household settings. Since commercial mercaptan detectors are bulky and expensive, there is a need for low-cost and miniaturized mercaptan detectors. The proposed project will lead to the development of a handheld mercaptan detector which will integrate a highly sensitive and selective microfluidic-based mercaptan sensor. The successful execution of the project will enhance FortisBC’s innovative initiatives portfolio and lead to the development of technologies and products of commercial interest in the natural gas sector.
