Tailored methane measurement services are to be developed for shale gas extraction, municipal waste
Date:12/16/2013

lines per industry (municipal waste water treatment, transmission grid, shale gas extraction) for fugitive methane emission measurement best practice, a collection of reports summarizing the project results, scientific papers on different methods for quantifying fugitive methane emissions and the comparative accuracy levels, the learning from the project for emissions factors for municipal waste water treatment, the use of inverse modelling to estimate fugitive emissions when used in conjunction with measurements, as well as a comparison of different dispersion models.

The findings of this work are expected to contribute to standards and guideline documents for industry including for example Best Available Technology guidelines highlighting how to monitor sites and capture fugitive losses.

Jane Burston, head of the Centre for Carbon Measurement at the National Physical Laboratory said:

"Methane plays a big role in global warming. The IPCC recently updated their estimate of methane's global warming potential from 72 times that of carbon dioxide to 86 times over a 20 year time period. So it's a critical area to tackle for climate change mitigation. At the same time many opportunities to reduce fugitive losses are profit-making or cost neutral, so it's a potential business opportunity too."

Mary Ritter, Chief Executive Officer, Climate-KIC said:

"Methane is a significant driver of climate-change and a valuable resource. Fugitive methane emissions measurement services will help a wide range of operators to better manage their processes and increase their profitability. Climate-KIC is proud to fund the project and collaborate with FuME's consortium to fight climate change by stimulating clean innovation and growth in Europe. "

"We are delighted to partner with Climate-KIC on this important quest to validate a new generation of measurement technologies," said Francis Egan, CEO of Cuadrilla Resources.
