A $6M grant from the California Energy Commission will go toward developing a cost-effective, scalable, emission detection approach for the state. Methane, a potent greenhouse gas that traps about 30 times more heat than carbon dioxide, is commonly released from rice fields, dairies, landfills, and oil and gas facilities - all of which are plentiful in California.
