  • Jubilee bonfire beacon, but no explosion, thanks to methane leak check

    Villagers in Brightwell Baldwin in Oxfordshire celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in style, lighting a hilltop bonfire as one of the nationwide chain of 4000 beacons being lit simultaneously. But the organiser had a background in the gas industry, so he was nervous about lighting a fire above an old landfill site. Leigh Greenham, who has been involved in the gas detection business for many ...

  • New guidance issued on reducing methane in residential water wells

    The National Ground Water Association has issued a new best suggested practice (BSP) for dealing with methane gas in residential water well systems. Intended to give guidance to water well system professionals, Reduce and Mitigate Problematic Concentrations of Methane in Residential Water Well Systems may also be of value to well owners though professional assistance is strongly encouraged due to ...

  • Crowcon’s LaserMethane Detector helps Tesco monitor methane emissions from cows

    Crowcon’s portable LaserMethane Detector is helping Tesco to monitor burps from cows on its dairy farms. Cow burps are a major source of methane emissions globally. The research, which is being conducted at the Tesco Dairy Centre of Excellence, in partnership with the University of Liverpool’s School of Veterinary Science, is part of an ongoing project by Tesco to measure the amount ...

  • EPA hears widely different views on methane emission threat

    Over-regulating methane emissions could discourage the use of environment-friendly natural gas, an energy industry representative told the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday. However, a former Colorado air quality official countered that such controls would be a cost-effective way to fight climate change. The EPA heard radically different views as it opened public hearings in Denver on ...
