Emissions impact climate and air quality

We help find and quantify them

Enabling environmental action

Emissions impact both climate and air quality significantly, yet many of the sources remain scarcely documented. Monitoring them correctly can enable forceful action either through environmental enforcement, mitigation, science, or technology advancement.
We focus on those emissions with the most urgent need of monitoring, where the environmental impact is greatest, where there is value to be gained, and where measurement using traditional means is either impossible or unfeasible.

Targeting fugitive and diffuse emissions

Fugitive and diffuse emissions can be notoriously difficult to measure. The target environment is often highly dynamic and difficult to access. Applying innovations in measuring techniques and sensors, Explicit is able to monitor these emissions, enabling clients to take mitigating action.
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Asset integrity
  • Production loss
  • Source detection
  • Reduction tracking
Biogas production

Isolating and quantifying methane emissions from biogas refineries can help reduce product loss and support environmental compliance regulation.

Oil/gas production

Quantifying methane emissions from flares, localizing leaks and identifying super-emitters from oil/gas production can help reduce losses and shape climate responses.

Animal production

Estimating ammonia emissions from animal farms and other agricultural sources can help inform reduction strategies and enable environmental regulation.

Landfills

Monitoring diffuse emissions from landfills, caused by organic processes, can help improve climate impact estimations and determine mitigation solutions such as extraction and coverings.

Waste water treatment

Emissions from waste water treatment is an often overlooked source of climate impact, because of the difficulty in monitoring over water.

Surface area screening

Drones enable both the quantification and source detection of emissions from large surface areas otherwise difficult or costly to access.

Quantification

Using a combination of high-performance sensor drones and automated flight patterns, Explicit uses patented and verified methodologies to accurately isolate and quantify methane and other emissions from larger areas and complex facility structures.
  • Establishing threshold values for emissions for purposes of reduction targeting or compliance monitoring
  • Distinguising super-emitters from low-emission sources
  • Isolating source emissions from surrounding areas

Source detection

Once the size of the problem has been quantified, leaks and mapping of precise sources can be done as part of the same operation. The ability to quantify and detect using the same instrumentation significantly reduces the cost of emissions monitoring.
  • Leak detection and resolution
  • 2D and 3D concentration mapping
  • Actionable emissions reports

Our services

Our emissions monitoring technologies and expertise are provided as adaptable service solutions, fitted to the task and the needs of the client. In some cases Explicit will provide full monitoring solutions including operations, data processing and reporting. In others, we work closely with operating partners and clients to execute inspections in the field while we focus on providing instrument payloads, data analysis support, training, and quality control.
