Cambridge Global Challenges


This international conference will review and discuss requirements, regulations and emerging technological capabilities for monitoring methane emissions.

Measurement and control of methane emissions is a significant issue across industries. National and international treaties necessitate a rapid reduction in emission rates of greenhouse gases. Next to associated health and safety risks on industrial sites, emissions of methane results in reduced profitability for the industry through the loss of a saleable asset. As a result, there is an increasing need to detect, monitor and address methane emissions from industries.

This conference will bring together a range of key stakeholders from across the sector, including industry, NGOs, government and academia, giving attendees a comprehensive understanding of available monitoring methods, industry needs, the regulatory environment and emerging technologies.
