  • NIRS: Evaluating the Biochemical Methane Potential (BMP) in seconds

    Biochemical Methane Potential (BMP) is an important parameter in biogas production as it helps producers to assess the efficiency of the anaerobic digestion process for specific substrates. With the NIRS DS2500 Analyzer, users can determine BMP in a few seconds helping them to optimize waste stock management for a maximum methane yield. The NIRS DS2500 Analyzer uses Near-Infrared ...

  • European consortium to combat methane emissions

    The Centre for Carbon Measurement at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is leading a European consortium to develop and test new methane measurement instruments for shale gas extraction, municipal waste water treatment plants and gas distribution. The consortium includes Cuadrilla Resources, Veolia Environnement and National Grid. Climate-KIC, Europe's largest public-private innovation ...

  • Preventing Occupational Exposure Risks to Methane

    Last month, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a total of $13 million that will be awarded to twelve, multi-year research projects intended to develop cost efficient and effective ways to mitigate methane emissions from natural gas pipeline and storage infrastructure. Methane is not only a primary component of natural gas, it is also a major greenhouse gas, which is a potential ...

  • The European Commission Joins Methane to Markets

    (Washington, D.C. – September 24, 2007) The Methane to Markets Partnership marked a major milestone this week as the European Commission became its 21st partner. Methane to Markets is a public-private partnership that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by promoting the cost-effective, near-term recovery and use of methane, while providing clean energy to markets around the world. The addition of ...

  • Reservoirs: a neglected source of methane emissions

    Substantial amounts of the greenhouse gas methane are released not only from large tropical reservoirs but also from run-of-the-river reservoirs in Switzerland, especially in the summer, when water temperatures are higher. This was demonstrated by Eawag scientists at Lake Wohlen, near Bern – a finding which slightly tarnishes the reputation of hydropower as a climate-neutral way of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Poland Looks to Join Methane Partnership

    The Republic of Poland officially has requested to become a member of the international Methane to Markets Partnership. Poland would join the ...

  • The Potential for Biogas in Africa

    When thinking about renewable energy it’s common to think of wind power and solar. However there is massive potential in Africa for the utilisation of renewable gas for power generation. Some naturally occurring microbes are able to break down organic material in the absence of oxygen to produce different types of biologically created gas – ‘ ...

  • High potential for the environment and the economy

    The recycling of metals and precious metals from electronic devices offers significant CO2 reduction potential. This is the result of a study undertaken by the German bvse, the Association for Secondary Raw Materials and Recycling. The use of secondary raw materials can for example avoid 1.2 tons of additional carbon dioxide emissions per ton of copper produced. This equals emission savings of 41 ...

  • Methane Exposure Concerns Discussed in New Video

    Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video.  Their newest production discusses methane and potential exposure risks to the gas.  “We are all exposed to low levels of methane in the air we breathe, but some people and some workers in certain occupations could be exposed to elevated levels ...

  • Frozen heat: methane gas hydrates , society and the environment

    As global demand for energy grows and continues to outpace supply for the foreseeable future, so does pressure to explore the use of methane hydrates as an economically-viable energy source. Global reservoirs of methane gas have long been the topic of scientific discussion both in the realm of environmental issues such as natural forces of climate change and as a potential energy resource for ...

  • Commitments Made to Reduce Black Carbon, Methane and Hydrofluorocarbons

    Governments and industry leaders in the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) today committed to further essential advances in reducing short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) that have a global warming potential many times that of the main greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. The SLCP Focus Day brought together some 30 Ministers and CEOs highlighting the importance and urgency of acting on ...

  • 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 ...

  • Methane: satellite data may improve emissions estimates

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories are significantly underestimating methane emissions from a region in the southwest of the United States, and potentially elsewhere, a new study has found. The authors of the study suggest that satellite data could be used to identify and quantify new sources of methane, such as fracking.  Inventories of estimated GHG emissions, which are used by ...
