How Governments Around the World Are Acting Against Gas Detection?

The government around the globe are eventually making efforts to decrease the methane emissions from oil and gas, in turn generating a demand for gas detection equipment. Fixed type of gas detection equipment is widely used to detect the methane as this type of product is vital to monitor the safety and efficiency in a range of applications.

Gas detection equipment plays a main role to minimize the damages caused due to leakage of methane through power generation, natural gas extraction and transportation. For instance, in 2020, the government of Canada committed to reduce the oil & gas methane emissions by 45% by 2025. Such activities is expected to increase the global sales of gas detection equipment’s.
