1.5 C - Methane: the 100x threat

Climate Tech Action Network (CTAN) presents 1.5°C, an ongoing climate technology panel event that will focus on the engineering and scientific challenges facing different verticals of the climate crisis. We are bringing together some of the hottest startups in the field to explore the complex trade-offs in cost, feasibility, scalability, and carbon reduction that each of these approaches brings.

Methane is the primary component of natural gas, and is a highly potent greenhouse gas, up to 100x more powerful at heat trapping than CO2. Finding ways to prevent methane from leaking into the atmosphere is one of the most important near-term climate actions we can take. Join us for an evening of networking and discussion about new advances in methane detection and mitigation with three of the top Bay Area climate tech startups.
