Low carbon: decommissioning and contaminated sites

BACKGROUND

Methane (CH4) is the prime constitute of natural gas and is a much more potent Greenhouse Gas than carbon dioxide (CO2). Leakage from the natural gas grid is approximately 0.06% of transported gas but can have a disproportionate impact on the environment. Location of very small leakages, economic cessation of these leaks and removing the need to expose buried pipework is a challenge to the gas sector to reduce its carbon footprint.

 

PROBLEM

Methods are required for a safe, efficient, and cost effective system to decommission old gas storage sites, gas manufacturing and coke works sites and the removal of contaminated land.
