Watch: Mobile tech challenge sparks new ideas for spotting methane leaks

Mobile Monitoring Challenge

What inventors are doing now could transform how oil and gas companies find methane leaks that warm the planet.

A high-tech collaboration between EDF and Stanford University — the Mobile Monitoring Challenge — is bringing innovators together to assess new technologies. The goal is to scan vast and complex oil and gas infrastructure for methane leaks quickly and efficiently.

Sensors mounted on drones and trucks collect valuable data companies can use to take action on methane leaks. Watch how the technology worked during field testing in the spring of 2018.
