Gas detection and measurement science for the energy sector – from Dave Risk and his team!
Whether by foot, truck, drone, robot, plane, or satellite, we work to improve the measurement of greenhouse gases. In part, we work in the Arctic to measure the emission of gases associated with permafrost decay. But these days we’re largely focused on energy and waste sector emissions, where we aim to provide information and solutions that will help Canada’s energy and waste sectors achieve methane emission reductions. If we can hit the targets, it would be the equivalent of taking 5.7 million cars off the road!
To manage methane and other forms of air pollution we need better measurements. We are responding with science to improve tools and monitoring programs. We have also conducted massive measurement campaigns across Canada to identify where reductions can be made most easily. We are using science to promote healthy informed conversation and to drive change.
Our working partners include provincial and federal regulators, Canadian and international NGOs, and compagnies like Eosense and PAL Aerospace who created methane sensors and measurement approaches for the market.
