What Is Drone Methane Emissions Detection?

Drone methane gas detection refers to the use of drones to detect methane gas in the atmosphere. This is accomplished by equipping drones with specialised sensors that can detect the presence and concentration of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

These drones can access remote or dangerous areas without putting human lives at risk, making them particularly effective for monitoring large areas, such as pipelines, landfills, agricultural sites, and other industrial settings.

Our drone-assisted gas detection service allows for rapid detection of leaks or emissions, which is essential for mitigating environmental impact and ensuring safety. It also enables a more efficient and cost-effective process compared to traditional ground-based detection methods.

Drone Emissions Measurement Service

UK Wide Drone Methane Gas Measuring Service

We offer specialised drone methane gas measuring service UK Wide. Designed to accurately detect and quantify methane emissions in various environments. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, significantly more impactful on climate change than carbon dioxide. Over a 100-year period, the global warming potential of methane is 28-34 times that of CO2. When measured over a shorter 20-year period, that ratio increases dramatically to 84-86 times.

Utilising our advanced technologies such as Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), our drones provide precise measurements of methane levels. This capability allows for real-time monitoring and rapid response to leaks, essential for both environmental protection and industrial efficiency.

Air Quality Monitoring

Meeting Regulatory Guidelines for Gas Emissions

Chemical facilities present challenges for traditional gas leak detection due to their complex infrastructure, but our advanced UAV gas monitoring system offers a comprehensive solution. 

Regulatory bodies impose strict guidelines on gas emissions, aiming to protect the environment and maintain air quality standards. Our drones equipped with specialised sensors can swiftly and accurately identify and track gas leaks or emissions throughout the facility. The real-time monitoring, quick detection, and accurate tracking of gas emissions provided by our technology help to maintain a safe and environmentally responsible operation, avoiding penalties and reputational damage associated with non-compliance.

Atmospheric Gas Monitoring

Comprehensive Methane Emission Analysis

The complex nature of gas terminals and processing plants necessitates a thorough understanding of the emissions released during their operations. Our unmanned aircraft can capture and analyse gas emissions in real-time, offering valuable insights into the type, quantity, and dispersion of gases being released.

The drones collect data on gas emissions and transmit it in real-time to a central monitoring system. This data is then analysed and interpreted, providing facility operators with valuable insights into the performance of their gas terminals and processing plants.

This information allows for proactive decision-making, enabling prompt actions to mitigate any potential risks, prevent gas leaks, and ensure compliance with safety regulations.

Helping Achieve UK Climate Goals

The UK Climate Change Committee (CCC) plays a crucial role in advising the government on emissions targets and monitoring progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Their guidance ensures that emissions tracking is integrated into the overall strategy of achieving emission reduction goals and transitioning to a low-carbon economy.

Our remote gas detection with drones significantly contribute to this process by providing detailed and precise data on emissions sources, land use patterns, and infrastructure, empowering policymakers, businesses, and researchers to make data-driven decisions and implement effective strategies for emission reduction.

By leveraging the insights gained from emissions tracking, stakeholders can take targeted actions, foster innovation, and collaborate towards a sustainable and resilient future.

Helping Anaerobic Digestion Generation Plants

Anaerobic digestion generation plants are facilities where organic materials, often waste from farms or food production processes, are broken down by microorganisms in the absence of oxygen. This process results in the production of a biogas that is primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide. This biogas can be used as a source of renewable energy.

Biogas is combustible, and methane is a potent greenhouse gas. It’s important to detect and control leaks to prevent accidents and minimize environmental impact. By using drone monitoring the types and quantities of gases produced, these plants can also gain valuable insights into the efficiency of their anaerobic digestion processes. For example, a lower-than-expected methane yield might indicate that there’s room for process optimization.

Drone-Based Methane Detection: Utilising Parts Per Million

Parts per million” (ppm) is a commonly used unit of measure to indicate the concentration of a substance in another substance. In the context of gas emissions, like methane from an anaerobic digestion generation plant, 1 ppm signifies that for every million units of air, there is one unit of methane.

Our drone-based gas detection service utilises advanced sensors to measure this concentration accurately. Our drones, armed with infrared sensors, can fly over facilities across the UK, shining an infrared light through the air. Methane absorbs this infrared light at a specific wavelength, and by measuring the extent of this absorption, we can accurately quantify the methane concentration in the air.

The results are reported in ppm, providing a straightforward, universally recognised metric that helps plant managers to ensure safety, control emissions, and comply with environmental regulations. This innovative, UK-wide service allows for regular monitoring of methane emissions to ensure optimal plant operation and environmental compliance
