Kayrros emission tracking
can help regulators set baselines for GHG emissions, measure the impact of environmental regulations, and implement new policies such as a carbon border tax. Products such as Kayrros Methane Watch provide greater visibility and coverage than existing sources, which often rely on desktop estimates rather than hard data.
Supplement or replace self-reported disclosure with independent and attributable measurements
Gain visibility on emissions that occur outside national boundaries
Replace desktop estimates of methane intensity with actual data
Kayrros uses data from the Sentinel 5-P satellite, which is part of the Copernicus network operated by the European Space Agency. Abnormal concentrations of methane, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter and other types of pollutants are detected automatically by proprietary Kayrros algorithms, which apply meteorological models in order to establish source flow rates and locations taking wind velocity and other local factors into account.
