Abstract

Abstract

Methane is the second most potent greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, and emission reduction plans are reflected in most countries’ legislation. Though official plans for reducing fossil fuel usage or solid waste management may sometimes sound over-optimistic, the general vector for better control of methane leaks is obvious. It requires relevant methodology and technology to be spread widely. This article analyses legislation and technology options and explains drone-based methane screening, which may significantly optimise current methane detection and quantification surveys.
