Calorific value: fiscal measurement in the multi-gas era

Fig 1: Gas Chromatographs, like the QMicro by Sensirion are a reliable way to precisely measure the calorific value.
Fig 2: Calorific value of gas distributed across a city can vary significantly when h2 & biomethane injection points are present
Figure 3: Thermal mass gas meter modules supplied by Sensirion are used to build compact and cost-effective static smart meters.
