EDF Launches a New Methane Satellite

By March 4, 2024March 19th, 2024News

“Developed by a subsidiary of the global non-profit Environmental Defense Fund, MethaneSAT will see and quantify total methane emissions over wide areas that other satellites can’t and identify large emitters in places they aren’t looking. Data from MethaneSAT will enable both companies and regulators to track emissions, and give stakeholders – citizens, governments and investors – free, near-real time access to the data, and the unprecedented ability to compare the results against emission goals and obligations.”

This is great news in the field of methane monitoring but also for the whole world. GASTRAQ team supports all initiatives in this field and we are looking forward to seeing the results of publicly available satellite data.
