Duvas Technologies Ltd was established after years of research at Imperial College London, one of the world's top 10 research universities.
Duvas has developed patented, innovative, real-time, multi-species gas sensors for Oil & Gas, Air Quality Management and Defence & Security markets.
Duvas has developed a new approach for multi-species gas analysis in mobile form producing instantaneous, dynamic readouts - and the geographic mapping of gas concentrations in real-time.
It is capable of measuring a large range of gases 'visible' in the UV spectrum. All gases absorb light differently, hence creating a unique 'fingerprint' for each gas.
The WHO (World Health Organisation) estimates that 1.2m people die each year from air pollution, and the market for gas detection is worth over $10bn annually.
