Global Transparency for Industrial Greenhouse Gas Emissions

In 2016, GHGSat launched a demonstration satellite ("Claire") for monitoring greenhouse gas emissions from any industrial site in the world. Claire has proven that it is possible to detect and quantify emissions from oil & gas, power generation, waste management and other sources around the world. Claire will soon be joined by two new GHGSat satellites and an aircraft sensor, all launching within the next 12 months, providing an order-of-magnitude improvement in performance and capacity. GHGSat is collecting all measurements in a new global datastore for greenhouse gas emissions, together with relevant data from third-party satellite and ground sources. This datastore is being used to develop new analytics, such as neural networks to identify emissions plumes and predictive algorithms to identify areas and facilities at high risk of emissions. These innovations are ushering-in a new era of global transparency for industrial greenhouse gas emissions, providing operators, regulators and policy-makers with the insights they need to reduce emissions.
