In the operation of a chemical or petrochemical plant there are operational risks from which environmental emergencies, due to undetected gas leaks, may arise. In some cases, these emergencies may cause irreversible damage to the environment and impair plant operation. This paper demonstrates the application of mass spectrometry in strategic actions aimed at detection, fast identification and mitigation of leaks or fugitive emissions.
