SENSING & ACTING for the ENVIRONMENT
SENSOREA provides sensing, monitoring, alarming, forecasting and investigation services to decrease environmental impacts (water consumption, wastes production, energy consumption, …). Our strategy is action-oriented and is supported by monitoring and machine-learning forecasting tools.
SENSOREA uses fast deploying IoT sensors and innovative fiber optic sensors (www.thase.be, www.fisens.com, www.b-sens.be) to monitor, wherever needed, the relevant parameters of the processes (hotels, hospitals, theatres, offices, industrial halls,…) and the environment (air, water and soil). We provide sensors in particular for the following parameters :
- Temperature and humidity
- Pollutants (CO2, N20, NOx, …)
- Electrical current, voltage and power
- Energy, water and wastes consumption
- Presence detection
- pH, conductivity and turbidity
- PM (particle matter)
- Magnetic and electric field
This data is collected, safely stored, processed and aggregated. Forecasting and benchmarking tools based on numerical simulation and machine-learning algorithm predict the evolution of the environmental impact on a hourly basis. Alarming and reaction procedures are triggered once the environmental indicator drifts from the dynamic target levels provided by the forecasting tools. We help customers to investigate the cause of the impacting events and to correct it. Then we train staff and propose processes change in order to avoid any further losses in the future.
Our methodology has proven its efficiency in particular for water leak detection, energy overconsumptions and environmental pollution.
To achieve and improve energy optimization and savings, monitoring and metering are used daily by the Sensorea team. IoT Meters have been deployed for 2 years in several buildings in order to detect leaks, drifts in energy consumption, overheating,… More generally, the IoT is becoming more and more frequent around us, and it is interesting to question the environmental impactLire la suite « IoT sensors for HVAC and their impacts on GHG, an LCA approach »
The end of the year is moving ahead and with it the time to take a look in the rearview mirror. Chloé Ponsart and I founded SENSOREA one year ago with the primary goal of reducing environmental impact on energy, water and waste. After this hectic year of activity in 7 countries in Europe andLire la suite « Our carbon and water footprint : -800 tCO2e/year and -25,000 m³/year »
According to REHVA’s recommendations, ventilation measures (and fresh air flowrate in particular) are the most important engineering controls in the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in indoor spaces. However, an additional supply of fresh air without precaution can lead to significant overconsumption of energy in buildings (up to more than 50% of overconsumption in heatLire la suite « Fresh air vs COVID-19 »
