Reliable Biogas Leak Detection

Jun 15 2016 Read 674 Times

A new application note from FLIR Systems describes how their GF320 optical gas imaging camera is being used in Germany to inspect large Biogas facilities and find hidden gas leaks before they can cause significant harm. Expanding the use of renewable energy sources has become a major issue for countries looking to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels and lessen the effects of climate change. The production of biogas (methane), in particular, is expected to play a larger role in the next decade. However, methane is a greenhouse gas that can harm the environment if not contained properly during the production process. Biogas producers face strict regulations regarding how they trace, document, fix, and report leaks of volatile gases.
