Long duration measurements of pneumatic controller emissions on onshore natural gas gathering stations
Over the last 15 years, advances in hydraulic fracturing have led to a boom of natural gas production the United States and abroad. The combustion of natural gas produces less carbon dioxide (CO2) than the combustion of other fossil fuels per unit of energy released, making it an attractive option for reducing emissions from power generation and transportation industries. Uncombusted methane (CH4) has a global warming potential (GWP) of 86 times that of CO2 on 20 year time scales and a GWP of global warming potential 32 times greater than CO2 on a 100 year time scale. The increase in supply chain ...
