We believe we can enable organisations to achieve Net Zero through mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.
We develop technology that provides a true understanding of your greenhouse gas emissions in an affordable, accurate and scalable way.
QLM provides camera systems that continuously visualise and quantify greenhouse gas emissions.
QLM Technology started as an idea in the head of our soon-to-be Chief Technical Officer, Xiao Ai, as he carried out postgraduate research into single photon Lidar gas detection at the University of Bristol. Aware of the ever-growing need to comprehensively understand the extent of emissions of methane and other key greenhouse gases, he realised that his research, in which a Lidar beam simultaneously probed both the shape and the concentration of plumes of methane, could help enable organisations worldwide to achieve Net Zero through mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.
QTEC, the university’s Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre, agreed. In 2017, they helped Xiao form QLM Technology to explore the commercialisation of his research, assigning him a business mentor in the form of Dr Murray Reed, a photonics industry veteran with thirty years of experience commercialising cutting-edge technology in Silicon Valley. Murray liked what he saw enough to go into business with Xiao, and he became CEO of QLM in June 2019.
Since then, QLM has been proud to collaborate with backers in the industrial, government and private sectors, notably Innovate UK who have been the major backer of the SPLICE project. We have also benefitted from the expertise of the National Physical Laboratory across a number of projects.
QLM is now ready to release its new solution to the industry – the first camera system that continuously visualises and quantifies greenhouse gas emissions.
QLM was created out the desire to create opportunities for organisations to achieve Net Zero, and in 2021, is the only solution that enables an accurate understanding of your greenhouse gas emissions in an affordable, scalable way.
