WVU Researchers Get $1.5M Grant to Develop Fugitive Methane Tech

Researchers at West Virginia University have won a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy to develop technology that will cut down (eliminate) methane from leaking at natural gas production sites–like wells and pipelines. The researchers are developing a “methane mitigator system” to trap what is sometimes called “fugitive methane.” But don’t expect successful outcomes from this research to appease environmental nutjobs. They’ll still hate methane anyway, even if every last molecule is trapped.
