USU scientists create a system for automatic detection of methane leaks

Information about the discovery was published in  the "Energy and Industry" publication. "This is one of the interesting developments of our university for the fuel and energy complex. Although the optical gas imaging technology is relatively young, it has been used in Western countries for several years. In 2016, it was recognized as the best technology for monitoring methane gas leaks," said Viktor Prikhodko, Senior researcher at the USU Research Institute.

 

OGI technology is based on the use of infrared cameras that allow you to visualize methane gas invisible to the human eye. Viktor Prikhodko explained, that  "according to statistics, some leaks often occur on large infrastructures of transport companies as a result of various reasons. At the same time, both in the West and in Russia, quotas for greenhouse gas emissions, which include methane, have been tightened in recent years. Up to 5% of the company's revenue can be spent on these fines. Therefore, the development of means for monitoring leaks of such gas is very relevant"
