ORION<sup>®</sup> CH4


As a powerful greenhouse gas, with 84 times* the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of carbon dioxide over a 20-year period, monitoring and controlling methane (CH4) emissions has become essential for compliance and public image.

MIRICO’s ORION® CH4 system is ideally suited to continuous methane emissions monitoring (as well as intermittent emissions monitoring) for oil and gas facilities, landfills and agricultural operations.

In adverse weather conditions that would significantly affect the accuracy and reliability of other monitoring systems, the ORION® delivers more reliable and highly sensitive measurements to provide greater confidence in the results.
