Gas being burned on-site via flaring

With a unique metal – osmium, researchers are one step closer to cutting methane wastage.


UNSW-led researchers have discovered a way to produce a tenfold increase in the amount of methane gas emitted by naturally occurring microbes living in coal seams and on food waste.


A UNSW-led team has devised a technique for detecting if methane from coal seam gas extraction sites is leaking into nearby groundwater, and has tested it for the first time in Queensland.
