Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd.has received a 2014 Institute of Physics Innovation Award in the UK. The accolade is in recognition of the company’s successful product research and development, and global commercialization of unique, ultra-low power consumption gas sensors. These include the SprintIR Ambient CO2 Sensor and the SprintIR Extended Range CO2 Sensor offered by CO2Meter.com.
Dr Frances Saunders, President of IOP, said, “As we become more aware of the detrimental effect of CO2 emissions, it is excellent to see Gas Sensing Solutions using the latest advances in physics to satisfy both the societal and the market demand.”
The IOP Innovation Awards are a unique celebration of commercial success built on physics. All the winners of this year’s Innovation Awards will be showcasing their achievements at an awards ceremony later this year in Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London, UK.
Alan Henderson, Managing Director and co-founder of Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd commented: “We are delighted to win this esteemed award. It recognizes the uniqueness, performance and low cost of GSS products, which are well aligned with current and emerging market needs, with sales in 46 countries and strong growth in both domestic and international markets.”
Gas Sensing Solutions supplied low-power consumption and fast-response carbon dioxide gas sensors. GSS is currently producing the world’s lowest power consumption sensor and one with the fastest response.
- Commercial buildings - energy saving by regulating CO2 levels and minimizing energy consumption with Demand Control Ventilation.
- School classrooms – high levels of CO2 levels affect children’s performance and concentration.
- Cars - The GSS CO2 sensor was presented earlier this year on the popular BBC One Show, warning drivers when CO2 levels are too high in vehicles. GSS is in discussions with a number of companies to deploy sensors in future vehicles.
Professor Des Gibson, Chairman of Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd added: "The award is a tremendous endorsement of the outstanding physics innovation achieved by the company, highlighting the dedication and capabilities of our people, together with the financial support and confidence from our investors.
“The company constantly strives for technical excellence, driven by our customers’ demanding needs for cost-effective sensor solutions to meet current and emerging global market requirements.”
