Methanesense is in its first cycle at Cyprus Seeds. Through combining advanced drone and sensor technologies, the project is developing a new solution for the accurate and cost-effective geo-location of leaks and quantification of emissions of methane. 

Methane is a strong greenhouse gas, responsible for one third of global warming. Under the Global Methane Pledge, launched by the EU and the US, more than 150 countries are now implementing a collective goal of reducing global anthropogenic methane emissions at least 30% by 2030. As a result, compliance with stringer regulations is becoming a reality for companies, particularly in the key sectors of energy, agriculture, and waste management.

MethaneSense’s innovative environmental technology solution offers a new, cost-effective path to regulatory compliance, while also enabling companies to realize further financial benefit through the recycling of methane in the value chain. It also contributes to the green economy transition, and supports efforts towards meeting the goals of the Paris agreement, for the benefit of people and planet.
