Our vision is to extract the most methane from water using the least possible energy. We transform potent emissions into a new source of renewable energy, powering our recovery technology, and leaving energy to spare. 

Methane is responsible for nearly half of net global warming to date. It is 34 times more effective in trapping heat in our atmosphere than carbon dioxide. However, finance for methane emissions reduction accounts for less than 2% of international climate finance. The quickest way we can address climate change is by reducing methane emissions. 

Bluemethane has developed a novel route for the abatement of scope one emissions from water. Our technology improves operational efficiency of water treatment plants and reservoirs whilst remaining energy positive. We do this by:

Measure

Quantify previously unknown methane emissions, evaluate site locations and estimate its value. This service measures and monitors dissolved methane, determining the value of deploying recovery technology. 

Capture

Deploy methane recovery technology. This service captures methane to prevent harmful emissions into the atmosphere and unlocks an additional source of biogas, optimising operational efficiency.

Generate

Advance on-site energy production using recovered methane. This service unlocks a previously wasted source of biogas, contributing to the energy transition and increasing site energy autonomy.

 

 

Global methane emissions

Methane emissions from water represent 6% of all anthroprogenic methane emissions. Those emissions from water include municiple wastewater, industrial wastewater, reservoirs and rice production. 

Livestock 105Mt
Water 87Mt
Oil and gas 86Mt
Coal 48Mt
Biomas 35Mt
Landfill 33Mt

The methane challenge is not fully understood

Carbon dioxide has been well mapped for some time. Sources of methane, however, are only starting to be fully understood. Methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas, with a global warming potential up to 80 times stronger than carbon dioxide within the first 20 years of its release.

It is estimated that up to 60% of methane emissions come from human activities, with three billion tonnes CO2e emitted from water sources such as wastewater, reservoirs and rice cultivation.

Methane measuring service

Estimating methane emissions drives inaccurate reporting. Bluemethane has developed an intelligent platform for the measuring and monitoring of methane emissions to provide accurate data. Using this data, Bluemethane can asses the financial value of this wasted resource for the deployment of recovery and usage technology.

Methane capture technology

Until now, no solution existed to remove methane from water at scale. Bluemethane’s recovery technology consists of two main components: a gravity-driven inline degassing unit which removes methane from water, and a low vacuum system into which the water flows. Methane is collected from a biogas stream that is sent for further processing, and turned into energy right where it’s needed.

Our progress is rapid

Sources of methane are only starting to be fully understood. However, policy is rapidly being introduced to curb methane emissions from water. Bluemethane will help you decarbonise your scope one methane emissions and acurately measure the benefit.
