A research group comprising Shiraz University and Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC) experts succeeded to manufacture methane nanosensor and its related system after two-year cooperation.

ICOFCís managing director, Mehdi Fakour made the remarks adding the home-made version of the device could be connected not only to different brands of sensors and recognize them but at the same is able to measure density of methane gas in the environment and alarm it.

The system consist of two parts; the first one includes a number of gas sensors, for example methane sensors, and the second part includes things like gathering information, controller circuits and data processors in order to find possible gas linkage and alarming it.

Fakour said the breakthrough has cut dependency on foreign manufacturers of the system adding the product can be used as a basis for indigenizing similar systems for detecting other gases like H2S.

According to fakour, at present, all existing systems in this regard in the country are imported and no methane sensor has been yet produced in the country.
