This Methane Symposium builds on the Energy and Emissions Research Lab’s (EERL) long research history of policy relevant measurements of GHG and other pollutant emissions in the global energy industry, including quantification of associated mitigation opportunities. EERL’s work in this area includes leading the NSERC FlareNet Strategic Network, this Network was launched on October 19, 2016, with Minister McKenna, Minister Duncan and NSERC President Pinto in attendance.

Our lab conducts interdisciplinary research within the general areas of fluid mechanics, combustion, thermodynamics, and laser diagnostics with applications focused on pollution quantification and mitigation in the upstream energy industry.  We collaborate closely with National Research Council and Natural Resources Canada and draw research support from several diverse sources including the World Bank Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership (GGFR), Natural Resources Canada, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), Environment Canada, Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC), and United Nations Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC).
