Detect methane emissions
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 10% of all our greenhouse gas emissions are methane. Methane is believed to be responsible for a quarter of all global warming. Are you working in the oil & gas industry and do you want to identify and reduce methane emissions in your factory of production facility? With the emission detection robot including a methane sniffer you can detect methane emissions. This is done completely automatically.
Methane emissions worldwide
Energy and industry is the second largest source of methane emissions in the United States and is the biggest source in other places of the world. Across the world, 25% of methane emissions come from the oil & gas industry. In the United States, fugitive emissions from the oil and gas industry are estimated to 13 million metric tons per year, amounting to $2 billion in lost revenue. Globally, the value of leaking gas is estimated to be $30 billion. As environmental concerns gain traction, sources of methane can easily be detected by satellites. Governments around the world are now pushing asset owners to solve this issue.
It has been our priority to develop a solution for this global problem. We have developed a robot that can detect fugitive emissions, such as methane. Please meet our Emissions Detector. This robot operates with no human intervention and it can detect methane emissions at low levels (ppm). The robot is kept permanently on location on its docking station. At regular times, the robot does rounds and follows pre-planned routes. When the robot detects methane, the robot will send an alarm to the control room. The exact location of the methane leak is shared. The control room staff can take action to repair the leak and reduce the methane emissions.
Robots with ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 certification
ExRobotics is the leading expert in developing rugged and reliable robots for harsh environments that require an ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 certification. By using the robots, dangerous factories and production facilities can be investigated. We are the only developer in the world that has an unique certification, allowing our robots to drive in explosive factories. Each robot is tailor-made and can be built modular, so the robot can be used for different purposes. This led to the four robots Emissions Detector, First Responder, Co-Operator and Inspector. Please read more information about the specifics of these robots.
Contact about our emission detection robot
Do you want to know more about detecting methane emissions? Or would you like more information about the ExRobotics Emissions Detector? Do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to tell you more about all this in person. During a meeting, we can explain the possibilities of our emission detection robot and provide you with a demo.
