Agricultural Emissions Monitoring
Between livestock farming and crop production, agriculture is the single largest source of methane emissions worldwide, responsible for approximately 145 million tonnes of methane emissions in 20201.
Understanding the extent of methane produced by ruminant digestion or emitted from wetlands used for growing rice, and being able to track changes in the emissions under different conditions, offers crucial insight into how methane production can be mitigated. However, emissions are frequently diffuse and poorly localised, requiring a solution that can identify both methane hotspots and dilute plumes.
The quantum gas camera from QLM offers this opportunity to agricultural science in an environmentally robust, readily portable platform.
