EPA Methane Detection Technology Workshop -- August 23 and 24, 2021
Register for EPA’s Methane Detection Technology Workshop.
EPA held a virtual public workshop August 23 and 24, 2021, to hear perspectives on innovative technologies that could be used to detect methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry.
The workshop focused on methane-sensing technologies that are not currently approved for use in EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for the oil and natural gas industry and how those technologies could be applied in the oil and gas sector. EPA’s state, local, and tribal regulatory partners, along with members of the public, were encouraged to attend the workshop. Attendees had an opportunity to submit questions for the panelists.
In addition, attendees were able to visit a virtual "virtual exhibit hall" to see presentations from technology vendors on their innovative technologies, with a focus on technology capability, applicability and data quality.
