GHGSat is building and will launch and operate the world’s first satellite capable of monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) and air quality gas (AQG) emissions from any industrial site in the world.

GHGSat Technology v2

GHGSat will:

  • Target a miniature spectrometer, on a nanosatellite, at individual emissions sources
  • Detect specific gases from those sources with innovative algorithms
  • Deliver unique data products to customers
  • Require no on-site equipment or presence

Gases will be monitored with a precision in parts per million / billion, depending on the species, with spatial resolution in tens of meters.
