When Capturing Methane from Landfills, Efficiency is Key

Capturing methane emissions from landfills key to reducing climate warming

Methane from landfills is one of the top three human sources of this potent greenhouse gas. Capturing methane produced by rotting waste on a landfill could help slow climate change. Yet this is not necessarily a simple task. It involves installing a complex network of gas collection pipes and wells, which need to be constantly […]

Aerial observation of landfills pinpoint methane ‘super emitters’

Methane-sensing satellites will be used to pinpoint methane super emitters.

  Methane-sensing satellites will be used to identify landfills that emit large amounts of methane in an effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions from these sources. Landfills have been acknowledged as one of the largest anthropogenic contributors of climate-warming methane to the atmosphere. However, aerial monitoring conducted by airplane flights and orbiting satellites could provide […]

Capturing Methane Leaks Offers Environmental & Economic Benefits

Methane leaks from coal mining adds to atmospheric warming potential of coal.

An orbiting satellite recently detected a large plume of methane in the skies above South African coal mines, highlighting the potential environmental risks associated with dirty fossil fuels. Since methane is a greenhouse gas that is far more potent than carbon dioxide in terms of its global warming capacity over the short term, methane leaks […]

Reducing Methane Emissions Key to Slowing Climate Warming

Methane leaks from coal mining adds to atmospheric warming potential of coal.

  Methane from livestock production, fossil fuels, and landfills contributes 30% of the greenhouse gases that are responsible for global warming Since methane is a greenhouse gas that is far more potent in terms of its warming potential than carbon dioxide, cutting back methane emissions is essential if we hope to tackle climate change and […]

How to Calibrate Gas Detection Equipment

Gas detection equipment may need to be calibrated according to the location.

Gas detection equipment can help detect and locate gas leaks and are an essential safety tool on sites where gas could potentially escape and pose a safety hazard to workers or the surrounding communities. However, from time to time, you may need to calibrate gas detection equipment at an atmospheric pressure (barometric pressure) that differs […]
