Clean Air Task Force published: Carbon Limits techno-economic study on “Zero emission technologies for pneumatic controllers in the USA”

The study was carried out in 2016 with the objective of analyzing the cost-effective non-emitting technologies available to eliminate methane release from pneumatic controller as major emission source.

The study found that these technologies have evolved considerably over the past decade and are now available and actively in use in oil and gas fields in the United States and Canada. Two technologies are mature, proven, and in relatively wide use, and as we discuss in this report, these technologies provide a cost-effective way to eliminate emissions of methane and other pollutants from pneumatic controllers.
