Next generation leak detection approaches seek to reduce emissions of air pollutants, create safer work environments, optimize resources, and provide more transparency for regulators and communities. Through a collaborative agreement with EPA’s Office of Research and Development, Flint Hills Resources and Molex, subsidiaries of Koch Industries, are designing and piloting an innovative system to remotely detect gas plumes from industrial equipment leaks. The system utilizes a combination of sensors, wireless communication, user-friendly software, advanced data analytics to provide 24-7 monitoring coverage, and personalized notifications and reports to key stake holders. We see this approach as facilitating increased stewardship of the environment, greater safety for our workforce, and more efficient utilization of resources to create value for our communities.
