This is the first: a satellite to monitor from I identified a farm in California through from methane from ! Objective: to monitor and from . The contribution of cows, in particular, to the full line of sight there. In fact, these cows despite having an astronomical amount of methane emit, because of them – and slow – and the resulting burps and – which represents only 5% of methane emissions from cows!
A single cow can emit up to 500 liters of methane per day. Methane is 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide2TheThen it contributes significantly – numbers depend on the method of calculation – to emissions Nationally, by order of a few percent. Located in the United States, the farm targeted by the satellite, moreover, a “fattening field”, meaning farm , where there are many livestock, close together and without lawns around to absorb some of the methane gas that is emitted. According to GHGSat, within one year of operation, more than 5,000 tons of methane are released. Enough to supply 15,000 homes if they can be seized and then stored.
