Supporting PFC Gas Reductionswith the Epson Method

Greenmethod is a registered trademark relating to environmental
technologies including the Epson method.

Perfluorocarbons (PFC) were considered to be among the most difficult to measure of the non-CO2 greenhouse gases until 2000, when Epson developed the "Epson Method." The Epson Method, a simple and accurate way to calculate PFC emissions based on FT-IR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy), made it possible to sharply reduce the level of PFC emissions. The Epson Method is patented. However, Epson grants a free license to use the technology under certain conditions, in the hopes of helping other companies reduce PFC gas emissions.
