  • Measuring methane

    At the UK's first viable compact anaerobic digester (AD) plant aimed at local food waste treatment, a Geotech GA3000 fixed biogas analyser monitors methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S). The plant, a modular scalable AD system, unveiled by React Environmental in July 2012 at Llangadog, Carmarthenshire, can handle some 1,000 ...

  • Greenland’s ‘good news’ methane finding

    Based on international research published today in Science, the finding includes Australian contributions from CSIRO and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO). Wetlands in the tropics and emerging from under receding Northern Hemisphere glaciers have been considered the primary source of rising atmospheric methane in a warming world. But scientists have known of ...

  • Methane Levels in Air Lower Due to Leakage Control

    Despite an increase in methane-generating activities, such as drilling for fossil fuels, researchers have found that the amount of methane concentrations in the atmosphere have dropped over the past few decades, according to Climate Central. A team of atmospheric chemists have investigated and attribute this phenomenon to significantly diminished methane leakage from oil and gas wells. ...

  • Carbon dioxide & methane rose sharply in 2007

    Global levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the primary driver of global climate change, increased by 0.6 percent last year alone, by 19 billion tons. Additionally methane rose by 27 million tons after nearly a decade with little or no increase. NOAA scientists have released these and other preliminary findings as part of an annual update to the agency’s greenhouse gas index, which tracks data ...

  • Dissolved Methane Found in Some New York Groundwater

    A recent study that looked at groundwater samples from more than 200 wells across New York State found levels of naturally-occurring methane high enough to warrant monitoring or other actions in nine percent of the water samples tested, according to U.S. Geological Survey research. While 91 percent of samples tested found no dissolved methane, or levels below the threshold that would require ...

  • NPL’s remote sensing of methane capability enhanced.

    Following the successful construction and launch of their latest enhanced Differential Absorption  Lidar (DIAL) system this summer, NPL has moved on to calibrate its new DIAL truck and to apply its capability to a key European project. The DIAL (Differential Absorption Lidar) facility is a highly mobile truck-mounted, sophisticated laser-based system that provides rapid, ...

  • Gas production from methane hydrate layers confirmed

    A Japanese state-owned enterprise has confirmed the production of methane gas from offshore methane hydrate deposits. The Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC), an enterprise created in 2004 to fund exploration activities for petroleum and natural gas, confirmed last week that methane gas was produced from a ...

  • Oil and Gas Companies Join Partnership to Capture Methane

    In the last two decades, natural gas has become the fuel of choice for power generation, because electricity produced with gas has half the carbon dioxide emissions of coal power. Many see it as a "bridge" to a low-carbon energy future; in 30 countries, it already fuels more than half the electricity. But to the extent that gas isn't burnt for power, but escapes into the ...

  • NOAA and US Coast Guard hunt for Alaskan methane and carbon dioxide sources

    Recent observations have suggested that the air above Alaska may already hold the first signs of a regional increase in greenhouse gas emissions that could contribute to climate change around the globe. To learn more about the region’s emissions, NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., has teamed up with the U.S. Coast Guard at Kodiak Island. The two partners are flying NOAA ...

  • TDL-500 with Archer GPS finds methane leaks fast
