Conifer Systems was given the opportunity to present our fugitive emissions solutions at the REMEDY Annual Program Review on March 21, 2023, in Washington DC.
Our CEO, Mark Erickson, spoke about the benefits of pre-engineered Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer solutions for ventilation air in coal and trona mining applications as well as Direct-Fired Thermal Oxidizer offerings for landfill gas applications. These systems capitalize on carbon credit opportunities through methane abatement and destruction.
Our goal is to empower industries to create a more sustainable future. With that, Conifer strives to create strategic partners that are passionate about going beyond destroying fugitive emissions and are capitalizing on waste heat recovery and heat-to-power opportunities. Conifer Systems wants to thank the ARPA-E for the chance to spread our message regarding carbon footprint and stewardship in active mining.
What is REMEDY?
REMEDY (Reducing Emissions of Methane Every Day of the Year) is a three-year, $35 million research Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) program to reduce methane emissions from three sources in the oil, gas, and coal value chains:
- Exhaust from 50,000 natural gas-fired lean-burn engines. These engines are used to drive compressors, generate electricity, and increasingly repower ships.
- The estimated 300,000 flares required for safe operation of oil and gas facilities.
- Coal mine ventilation air methane (VAM) exhausted from 250 operating underground mines.
These sources are responsible for at least 10% of U.S. anthropogenic methane emissions. Reducing emissions of methane, which has a high greenhouse gas warming potential, will ameliorate climate change.
