  • Frost Methane mitigates methane gas emissions from Arctic Circle permafrost

    Methane, representing about 10% of greenhouse gas emissions, comes from one of two sources: diffuse or point. Diffuse emissions come from large, non-point sources such as livestock. As the name implies, point emissions can be traced to a specific source such as smokestacks, oil refineries, auto plants – or the 9 million square miles of […]

  • UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters

    In an effort to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector, the European Commission is working to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation by 37.5% over the next 10 years. A promising approach is to focus on developing alternative fuels and technologies to replace greenhouse-intensive ones. If spark-ignition engines were to be replaced by clean diesel […]

  • Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters

    Co-written by Alicat and Framergy. Funding for this research was provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under contract number 68HERC20C0007. Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are a novel class of nanomaterials that are highly effective as a solid adsorbent and utilize their unique “cage-like” structure to trap molecules. Because of these properties, MOFs have been […]

  • KimPro Energy monitors oil and gas methane emissions using portable mass flow meters

    In response to the global climate crisis, government regulations on venting flows and leaks are increasing. Standards for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions now require measurements that have historically only been estimated. Challenge: Meeting increasing government regulations KimPro Energy needed a new solution for oil and gas emissions monitoring. These new government regulations meant they would […]

  • Biosphere 2 studies the impacts of drought on tropical rainforests using flow measurement

    As the Earth’s climate changes, scientists expect that a hotter, drier world will have severe impacts on global ecosystems, with many areas subjected to increased water stress and/or drought. However, it is difficult to forecast the specific impact climate change will have on soil, air, and water quality across different regions of the world. In […]

  • Graftel verifies sensor operation in nuclear leak monitoring equipment

    Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Roselle, Illinois, Graftel has emerged as the industry leader for nuclear facility leakage rate monitoring in the US. Regular monitoring both satisfies federal NRC regulations and serves as a preventative measure to help keep the working environment safe for power plant employees. From portable local leakage rate tests (LLRTs) […]

    FAST achieves high-altitude ballooning goals using portable mass flow meters

    In 2011, Dr. Amanda Maxham established Flying Apple Space Technologies (FAST), a program that uses high-altitude ballooning (HAB) to inspire involvement in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics. FAST teams are encouraged to find creative solutions to the challenges associated with the launching of latex weather balloons into the atmosphere. Each balloon is fitted with scientific […]
