Imagine if industries, institutions, regulatory bodies and policymakers were empowered with precise, near-real-time emissions data that independently verifies when, where, how much and at what rate natural gasses are being emitted into the atmosphere. Imagine if we had that data at our fingertips to make the unseen seen, to detect emissions on and offshore (even in the most remote locations), and use that data to set global benchmarks, inform decision-making, and pinpoint leaks, flares, and super-emitters on a global scale.
This emissions intelligence exists, and is reshaping our fight against global warming and paving the way to a net-zero future.
Understanding Emissions Intelligence
For decades undetected amounts of dangerous and potent contributors to global warming have been released into the atmosphere across industries. Efforts to identify and monitor these emissions on a global scale have largely relied on estimates, calculations, and monitoring solutions that require human guidance and come with costly hardware limitations. Industries have also lacked the data necessary to set emissions benchmarks across industries, optimize operations and perform truly data-based climate risk analysis. However, this is changing and the way we get to net-zero along with it.
By harnessing the power of multi-satellite imagery, a number of increasingly sophisticated emissions intelligence algorithms autonomously detect, quantify, and monitor the release of greenhouse gasses in satellite images. Satellite technology is a game changer for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions monitoring and data-driven decision making. Unlike on-the-ground monitoring devices or aircraft monitoring missions, satellites orbiting our planet every day and equipped with sensors that can capture the unique spectral signature of natural gasses are the most comprehensive, dependable and cost-effective solution for accurately detecting emissions on a global scale. Leveraging the sheer scale of satellite imaging, this technology transcends the limitations of ground-based monitoring and provides a truly global perspective on GHG emissions. A perspective essential for setting international emissions standards and industry benchmarks, green policy and managing financial risks across industries. Put simply, emissions intelligence is reshaping the future of emissions monitoring by unlocking the potential of satellite imagery's wide coverage to ensure that no emission source goes undetected – even at facilities and assets offshore or in remote locations. Impact on Global Warming
Global warming, fueled by increasing GHG emissions, poses severe threats to our planet. The rise in global temperatures, extreme weather patterns, and the melting of polar ice caps are clear indicators of the crisis we face. Urgent action is required to mitigate this crisis and achieve a net-zero future.
But we can only stop what we can measure, and this is precisely the reason emissions intelligence is so important to the future of our planet.
This is particularly crucial when it comes to methane— an influential greenhouse gas that is the key to our fight against global warming. Methane’s potent contribution to global warming is difficult to underestimate. With a warming potential over 80 times greater than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period, methane accounts for a whopping 25% of global warming today. Industries such as oil and gas, waste management, and agriculture are major sources of undetected methane emissions. Accurate detection and mapping of these emissions are crucial for reducing them by 45% by 2030 to ensure we keep the international goal of a 1.5C global warming threshold. The road to net-zero simply isn’t possible without drastically cutting methane emissions. Momentick: On-Demand Emissions Intelligence
Momentick is determined to get us to net-zero with customized, on-demand emissions intelligence solutions. Our technology combines proprietary algorithms and high-resolution, multi-satellite imagery to deliver on-demand, autonomous detection and measurement of GHG emissions (e.g., methane) where others can’t. We equip industries and regulatory bodies with the necessary data to manage and verify emissions performance on a global scale and implement effective mitigation measures. Just set the coordinates, and our technology delivers the right insights for the right decisions.
Our emissions intelligence offers actionable insights in near-real-time, high-frequency reports with historical data to detect emission hotspots, track progress, and evaluate the efficacy of emission reduction strategies.
This means that emissions in any area of interest today are compared to previous measurements at the same site to map exactly when and where emissions began, increased, or were reduced.
Armed with this sophisticated emissions data crucial for climate risk analysis, decision-makers across industries can decarbonize operations, verify regulatory compliance, manage risks, invest in cleaner technologies and projects, and develop strategies that say on top of emissions and drive a greener future.
The moment is now
Emissions intelligence is the way forward. It’s the most effective way to map and monitor GHG emissions over large areas anywhere on the globe. The combination of the power of satellite imagery and advanced algorithms makes robust, data-driven decision-making, regulatory compliance and targeted interventions to stay on top of emissions possible. But it’s now or never. Industries don’t have the luxury of decades to tackle emissions. Curbing global warming and achieving global climate goals depends on making enormous cuts in human-caused emissions over the next decade. And this isn’t possible without advanced emissions intelligence solutions — right here, right now.
