New kind of sensor is capable of detecting invisible infrared signatures emitted by various kinds of gases, plastics and other sources.
Energy emissions have declined to lowest levels since 1991 due to lower heating demand, less coal usage, and utilization of more renewable energy sources.
A new study shows that global emissions of methane from oil and gas production and natural sources combined are 60 to 110 percent higher than the current estimates.
A new study from NASA examines the cause of the methane “hot spot” in New Mexico and found that emissions from the oil and gas industry in the state are to blame.
The threat of a global shortfall in helium supplies may no longer be a problem, given the discovery of a helium gas reserve in Tanzania.
Portugal's efforts to lower their CO2 emission has just been brought to action as they depended entirely on renewable energy for four straight days.
In hopes to improve the safety in the natural gas industry, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has successfully flight-tested a quadcopter equipped with a miniature methane detector.
Currently, the U.S. has 989 open and closed landfills, which amounts to a great deal of methane leaking from all that piled waste. The EPA's recent proposal seeks to regulate the emissions of at least 574 of those. The proposals also address controlling fracking emissions.
Replacing old or damaged natural gas pipelines can greatly reduce methane emissions and related injuries. A Stanford-led study found that cities such as Durham and Cincinnati are already benefiting from such projects.
One of the lightest elements, helium, has been thought to be dangerously near finished. Used in MRIs and the Large Hadron Collider, it's important. Researchers say it lies beneath mountain ranges, geyser fields, and is otherwise in supply in ways we didn't know as well before.
It's no secret that fracking has been associated with earthquakes, contaminated groundwater and increasing levels of toxic radon, but now researchers are adding air quality and human health to the list.
Fracking is most likely to blame for earthquakes occurring near Azle, Texas, from late 2013 through spring 2014, according to new research.
Hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, may be increasing levels of toxic radon in Pennsylvania homes, according to a new study.
Apparently a natural seepage of methane has been emitting from an Arctic seabed for the last 2.7 million years, a new study reveals.
