  • NH3 / CH4 detection for biogas injection into the natural gas grid

    Simultaneous detection of two gases increases efficiency while decreasing costs. A single, compact device can accomplish this. Axetris Laser Gas Detectors are capable of measuring ammonia and methane for biogas injection into the natural gas grid. Biogas is a modern energy source independent of the limited supply of fossil fuels. Its production can be adapted to current demand and is, unlike ...

  • WMO greenhouse gas bulletin 2006:atmospheric carbon dioxide levels highest on record

    In 2006, globally averaged concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere reached their highest levels ever recorded. The World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) 2006 Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, published today, says it reached 381.2 parts per million (ppm), up 0.53 per cent from 379.2 ppm in 2005. The information is based on observations from the WMO Global CO2 and CH4 Monitoring ...

  • The latest technology in landfill gas analysis

    Part II A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 sets the minimum standard for contamination when land is redeveloped - as a minimum, sites must not qualify as contaminated land once they have been developed. The utilisation of brownfield sites therefore necessitates environmental investigation work, but Matthew Penfold from Geotechnical and Environmental Assessment Associates (GEA) says ...

  • Record High for Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    The disappointing climate conference in Warsaw, Poland—which was intended to lay the groundwork for a global climate agreement in 2015—stands in sharp contrast to the continued growth in emissions of greenhouse gases. Negotiators and activists alike confront not only the fact that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reached the highest annual total to date, but also a shifting geographic ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Concentrations Reach New Record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2011, according to the World Meteorological Organization. Between 1990 and 2011 there was a 30% increase in radiative forcing – the warming effect on our climate – because of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping long-lived gases. Since the start of the industrial era in 1750, about 375 billion tonnes ...

  • Greenhouse Gases Reach Record Levels / WMO Highlights Concerns about Global Warming and Methane

    NEW YORK - The main greenhouse gases have reached their highest levels recorded since pre-industrial times, according to the World Meteorological Organization's 2009 Greenhouse Gas Bulletin. The report also highlights concerns that global warming may lead to even greater emissions of methane from Arctic areas. According to the Bulletin, total radiative forcing of all ...

  • Greenhouse gas concentrations hit yet another record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached yet another new record high in 2014, continuing a relentless rise which is fuelling climate change and will make the planet more dangerous and inhospitable for future generations. The World Meteorological Organization’s Greenhouse Gas Bulletin says that between 1990 and ...

  • The importance of maintaining your fixed gas analyser

    Plant technicians rigorously check for contaminants within the digester and ensure that the performance is optimised but maintaining the gas analyser monitoring the whole process is often overlooked.  Many analysers are used in harsh and potentially explosive environments and so it is of paramount importance that the operation runs smoothly and safely. With simple ...

  • Continuous Ground Gas Monitoring Technical Article

    It is almost inevitable in the initial phases of a construction sites development, that a Ground Gas risk assessment process is required by the local planning authority, and subsequently undertaken by a developer or their contractor. This normally encompasses spot monitoring visits that can last up to 12 months or more, if methane is found at over 5% by volume. However, it is important to realise ...

  • Micro gas turbine protected by continuous biogas analysis in South Korea

    A biogas micro gas turbine electrical power generation plant at Gong Ju, Korea now generates 60kW from waste water. Biogas rich in methane (CH4) comes from anaerobic digestion of 100 tons of waste water produced every day from raising livestock. The biogas fuels the micro turbine which drives the generator. While the plant was being fine-tuned, before starting full-scale operation, a ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Concentrations in Atmosphere Reach New Record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2012, continuing an upward and accelerating trend which is driving climate change and will shape the future of our planet for hundreds and thousands of years. The World Meteorological Organization’s annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin shows that between 1990 and 2012 there was a 32% increase in radiative ...

  • Global Liquefied Natural Gas Market 2012 - 2018 By MarketResearchReports.biz

    Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a natural gas (predominantly methane, CH4) that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transportation. LNG takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state. It is odorless, colorless, non toxic and non-corrosive in nature. The world knows about the impact and utility of natural gas and has realized that LNG may facilitate ...


  • Study on Methane Emissions from Natural Gas Systems Indicates New Priorities

    A new study published in the journal Science says that the total impact of switching to natural gas depends heavily on leakage of methane (CH4) during the natural gas life cycle, and suggests that more can be done to reduce methane emissions and to improve measurement tools which help inform policy choices. Published in the February 14 issue of Science, the study, ...
