Ethylene plume profile measurements and mass flow estimations of diffuse ethylene leakages from a petrochemical plant have been performed with a computer-automated CO2 laser long-path absorption instrument. The total ethylene mass flow was estimated using a trace gas method. Comparative measurements were also performed.
