Abstract : The patent describes a system and method for continuous monitoring of an airstream for the presence of pollutants. Pollutants are effectively absorbed in a solution by creating turbulent flow of the airstream and the absorbing solution. The absorbing solution containing the pollutants is passed to an electrochemical cell, and any electrical change produced in the electrodes of the electrochemical cell denotes the presence of pollutants.
