The Methane Conference, organised by the Centre for Climate Repair, focused on the science and engineering of methane removal from the atmosphere and highlighted emerging technologies which have the potential to be scaled up to GtCO2e / year removal. The conference also discussed policy frameworks currently in place for dealing with methane in the atmosphere and whether these could be further developed.
Nestor shared bluemethane’s plans for measurement, mitigation, capture and utilisation of methane at hydropower dams with the hybrid in-person and virtual audience. It was a privilege for bluemethane to be speaking alongside industry leaders and innovators in the field of methane abatement.

This methane conference reflects a growing recognition of methane in the climate debate, correctly pushing it up the climate agenda. Methane is powerful greenhouse gas and the second biggest contributor to human-caused global warming after CO2. In terms of global warming potential, methane is 100 times stronger than C02 over 20 years and 28 times as powerful over 100 years.
