Our Distributed Methane Strategy Revealed – Backed by Science

Written by Dr. Ory Zik, Qnergy CEO

 Around the same time Science Magazine published an article titled “Assessment of methane emissions from the U.S. oil and gas supply chain”, we launched our compressed air pneumatics product line to help the oil and gas industry abate methane emissions from pneumatics controllers.

The article shed light on a concerning reality: methane emissions within the U.S. O&G sector were a staggering 60% higher than previously reported by the EPA.

This further fueled our determination to make a tangible difference in methane abatement. Several years down the line, we are proud to have emerged as the market leader in mitigating methane venting from the vast number of dispersed sources within the O&G industry. Through collaboration with prominent U.S. operators, we have successfully curbed methane emissions from numerous decentralized points across production operations.

While our focus remains steadfast on addressing the widespread methane venting within the O&G sectors of the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, and now growing internationally to Australia and other countries, landfill methane emissions is the next step in our journey.

After extensive development and rigorous testing spanning two years, we have achieved a significant breakthrough: the ability to generate power from methane concentrations of less than 30%. With this milestone under our belt, we are now preparing to unveil our Landfill product line.

Science recently published another article underscoring a similar issue of an outsized, higher than anticipated, methane impact within the waste management industry, entitled “Quantifying Methane Emissions from United States Landfills.”

We are confident that our proprietary methane abatement solutions will position us as leaders in this sector as well, much like the O&G industry.

In conclusion, our distributed methane strategy, underpinned by scientific research and industry collaboration, is poised to make a lasting impact on methane emissions reduction across multiple sectors.
