Kontrol Technologies Corp., a leader in smart buildings and cities has added a new Customer in the liquified natural gas (LNG) market to provide emission monitoring and analytics for a new LNG project in the USA. As a follow up to the press release dated February 15, 2023, the Company is reviewing multiple location opportunities, in addition to the new Customer, as it expands its emission monitoring solutions in the USA.
“This new emission monitoring and analysis opportunity was driven by our prior work with various local utilities in the Customer’s geography,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO Kontrol Technologies. “Our established reputation for detailed and precise emission monitoring and analysis has opened a new market with scale potential. As the regulatory environment for new energy projects tightens and becomes more restrictive, we are well positioned to capitalize on those trends with our turn-key monitoring and analytic solutions.”
History of Emission Monitoring for Oil, Gas and Cement Industries
The Company has a long history of providing continuous emissions, compliance and monitoring solutions through its operating subsidiaries. Historically the Company has provided emission technology deployment and solutions to large industrial customers in the oil, gas and cement industries across Canada and the USA. The LNG market opportunity is new revenue vertical for the Company and the majority of interest is in the USA market.
Monitoring Environmental Impacts
LNG facilities and the associated development of new facilities may be a source of harmful pollutants or emissions, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), nitrogen oxides (NOx), methane (CH4), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and particulate matter (PM). The ability to monitor, validate and quantify harmful pollutants or emissions is typically a regulatory requirement which may vary by region.
