Making a world of difference in emissions monitoring
Measuring and monitoring industry vital signs
A drone flies over a gas pipeline in remote terrain detecting errant but invisible methane – a gas, many times more potent than CO2 in trapping heat in the atmosphere. The drone’s onboard analyzer registers the leak while flying and immediately sends information up to the cloud.
The message is relayed to a control room where the team initiates a repair operation, avoiding the spread of this environmentally harmful gas and preventing the situation from escalating into a more serious incident.
With technologies and solutions that support smarter, safer and more sustainable operations in the essential industries of modern society – such as water, shipping, energy and many others – ABB is helping to preserve precious resources, protect vulnerable ecosystems, and promote social progress.
Measurement made easy
Flexible, sensitive and comprehensive ABB Ability™ Natural Gas Leak Detection Solutions enable customers to monitor their entire production infrastructure easily and reliably, while assuring they are compliant with the strictest environmental regulations. Additionally, Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS) coupled with ABB Ability™ Genix Datalyzer, a remote analyzer fleet monitoring solution, reduces the need for on-site visits.
Measuring what counts
Vietnam’s Hoa Phat Hai Duong Complex, one of the largest steel production facilities in the country, recently chose ABB to supply, install, commission and activate 10 CEMS into 10 smoke exhausting pipes at different production lines and workshops of the facility.
In Australia, a new waste-to-energy plant near Perth will rely on ABB’s gas analyzers to help safely produce 29 megawatts of baseload electricity from non-recyclable waste that would otherwise go to landfills. The plant will generate enough to power 40,000 homes from an annual feedstock of up to 330,000 tons of municipal, industrial and commercial waste.
