R&D

In the next five years, networks
of sensors like this miniature silicon
chip trace-gas spectrometer will help
us "see" and manage environmental
pollutants. This sensor design uses IBM's
expertise in silicon photonics to detect
methane with infrared light brought in via
optical fibers. Thousands of sensors can be
manufactured on each silicon wafer, allowing
for large-scale sensor networks at a low cost.

Unintended EMISSIONS
IBM uses low-cost sensors to help address climate change issues

N

atural gas is considered by many to be a cleaner energy source. The
downside to natural gas is the methane that is a primary component. If it
leaks into the air-estimates suggest approximately 1 to 2 percent leakage
is common at production sites-it absorbs the sun's heat and warms the Earth's
atmosphere. Methane is estimated to be the second-largest contributor to global
warming, after carbon dioxide.

Jim Utsler,
a senior writer
for IBM Systems
Magazine, has
been covering
technology for
more than
20 years.

To address this issue, the
Advanced Research Project Agency
for Energy (ARPA-E) is partnering
with a number of universities,
industrial research labs and
technology companies to take
part in its Innovative Technology
to Obtain Reductions (MONITOR)
program. IBM has taken a leading
role in the program, developing
low-cost, highly accurate sensors to
detect methane leaks.

As the appropriately last-named
William Green, senior manager of
the Photonic and Nanoscale Systems Department, IBM Research,
describes here, not only do these
sensors pick up signs of methane
leaks, but they also work in tandem with machine learning and
advanced analytics. They help oil
and gas companies lessen unintended methane emissions and
increase the amount of natural

gas they capture and put
to market.
IBM Systems Magazine (ISM):
What is IBM's contribution to
the ARPA-E MONITOR program's effort to identify and
reduce fugitive methane?
William Green (WG): Overall,
the integrated sensing solution
we're developing at IBM Research
will ultimately use novel sensor
