Over recent years, methane has drawn increasing corporate, political and public attention, as its warming potential – 84 times greater than CO2 – has become more widely acknowledged. In sectors with high proportions of methane emissions, notably waste and the oil and gas industry, abatement has become a key near-term target, with firms setting ambitious reduction goals over the next decade. This report identifies the most common issues of methane emissions mitigation and segments the market of solution providers into three broad categories, based on the challenges they address.
