CHARACTERISING ANTHROPOGENIC SOURCES OF METHANE AND POTENTIAL HYDROGEN LEAKS IN THE SOUTH PACA REGION
Methane is the second most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas whose emissions must be reduced by 30% by 2030 in line with the agreement drawn up at the COP26 climate summit. In this context, the METHY-GREEN doctoral project has several objectives:
→ Reducing uncertainties on the measurement of methane emissions in the extremely industrialised south-west part of the region
→Improving the existing inventory measured by AtmoSud observatory
→ Assessing methane leaks and potentially hydrogen leaks (if used) in future gas storage infrastructures
→ Carrying out a study on the environmental impact of these leaks.
