Webinar: Hyperspectral Infrared Imaging of
Fugitive Methane Emissions from Flare Stacks

Wednesday, July 26 - 11:00 am CST

Free to attend | Live Q&A | All registrants will receive recording and presentation

About the webinar

Fugitive methane emissions represent a significant contribution to environmental pollution and anthropogenic climate change. Methane is among the most infrared-active naturally occurring molecules and represents an 80 × increase in atmospheric warming potency when compared to CO2. The need for reliable and cost-efficient methane detection technology is critical to mitigating the environmental damage caused by fugitive emissions. Infrared hyperspectral imaging is a high capability technique suitable for the detection, identification, and quantification of both localized point-source emissions and diffuse emissions from a dispersed source

In this webinar, Dr. Mark Norman, Field Applications Engineer with Telops, will present recent work performed in conjunction with partner SkyCam in which methane emissions from a flare stack at a municipal wastewater treatment plant were detected, identified, and quantified using an airborne hyperspectral infrared imaging system
