Objectives and Applications Quantify and track point-source (CH4) and (CO2) emissions. Persistently pinpoint, quantify and track strong methane and CO2 emissions at facility scale. Offer a rapid methane leak detection service to facility operators and regulators. Deliver independent data to help certify methane intensity for oil and gas supply chains. Increase global accessibility, transparency and understanding of CH4 and CO2 data.
