Hardware Enabled SaaS Solution Quantifying Methane Emissions
NevadaNano’s MethaneTrack™ is a low cost network of rugged monitoring points to measure methane emissions and report leak location and size to the operator. Utilizing an Industrial IoT (IIoT) network to detect methane in the air, MethaneTrack™ detects fugitive and operational emissions from a site and immediately alerts the operator of the location and volume of the emissions, facilitating rapid response and repair. Autonomous, continuous monitoring enables up to 99% reduction in emissions while reducing operational costs and boosting profits.

Methane Leak Detection
Detecting Methane Leaks Early is Crucial
Methane isn’t only an environmental threat. Methane leaks can result in stiff regulatory fines for many gas companies. And the Environmental Protection Agency has recently taken action to curb methane emissions as part of the Clean Air Act.
This bill will reduce methane emissions by 41 million tons between 2023 and 2035, equivalent to 920 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. More than all carbon dioxide emitted from passenger cars and commercial aircraft in the United States in 2019.
Non-compliance with regulations regarding methane emissions can result in stiff fines and penalties.
Detecting methane leaks is also crucial in maintaining a safe workplace for the oil and gas industry. Methane is an odorless, colorless gas that is highly flammable and combustible at 100% Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) concentrations.
When leaked methane accumulates, it can result in an explosion once ignited. These major industrial accidents often result in the devastating loss of life and property. Therefore, these types of accidents must be avoided at all costs since they can be so destructive.
There is no room for error regarding methane emissions and leaks. The environmental impact of methane is dire. And these leaks can pose a tremendous risk to health and safety if they contribute to an explosion. Reliable gas detection technology is the best way to find a leak early and stop it quickly.
