What we do
You give us the geographic coordinates of any site in the world, and we will task our platforms (satellite or aircraft) to measure gas concentrations at that site, within days of your request. We then use these and other data to deliver unique analysis of the site, such as emission rates, trends, and leak alerts.
Methane is the powerful greenhouse gas that’s not being talked about.
PULSE GHGSat is a unique interactive tool making the invisible, visible.
Iris delivers first results: Smallest Methane emission ever detected from space
This image was taken on 15 September 2020, by GHGSat’s second satellite Iris, following her launch on 2 September 2020. Iris was tasked with measuring a controlled release of methane from a facility in Alberta, Canada. Ground measurements of the controlled release confirmed an emission rate of 260 kgCH4/hr.
GHGSat commercial satellites map plumes of methane in the atmosphere down to 25m on the ground, detecting and measuring emissions from point sources 100 times smaller than any comparable system with a resolution 100 times higher, comparable to the emissions from a large landfill.
Patented Technology:How it Works
GHGSat satellites measure any site in the world, within days. GHGSat aircraft sensors are dispatched to high-value areas, on demand.
GHGSat’s technology measures the absorption of light with very high resolution in spectral bands for gases of interest
