ABB wins award for excellence in emissions monitoring

February 2024 News

ABB has earned the 2023 Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award in the global emissions monitoring systems industry. Frost & Sullivan’s global team of growth pipeline experts chose ABB based on its visionary understanding of future world challenges, the deployment of best practices and strategic analytics, and also its innovation and technical expertise in emissions monitoring and methane gas leak detection. According to Frost & Sullivan, ABB is shaping industry trends and supporting customers across a complex landscape of stringent emissions regulations.

“There has been a long-term commitment from ABB to the development of multiple innovative emissions monitoring and gas leak technologies that serve the broadest industry sectors worldwide,” said Jean-René Roy, global business line manager for ABB Measurement & Analytics. “It is fantastic that Frost & Sullivan has recognised our collective achievement and leading technology through this award, and I would like to thank my team for their continued dedication to the cause.”

According to Frost & Sullivan, ABB’s high quality, digitally-enabled products and solutions for measuring processes and greenhouse gas emissions, detecting gas leaks and optimising production are the drivers for cost-effective compliance and long-term efficiency.

ABB’s extensive instrumentation and gas analyser portfolio includes continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) used in power generation, chemicals and refineries, waste incineration, co-combustion, marine and other applications. The portfolio also comprises the ABB Ability natural gas leak detection solutions, a comprehensive suite which detects and maps gas leaks with unrivalled accuracy.

In addition, ABB has been at the forefront of greenhouse gas sensing from space for over two decades. Collaborating with major space agencies worldwide has given the company a competitive edge. ABB applies its vast expertise acquired in high profile government space missions to the private sector to modernise the field and continue to make advancements in the space industry. With the aim of achieving collective, coordinated action on a global scale, the US Department of Energy recently awarded ABB a grant for the development of a single repository platform that will aggregate, analyse and visualise methane data from multiple sources for the first time. The vital platform will allow for a significant reduction of methane emissions, pollution and waste, enabling substantial progress on climate change targets.

ABB’s emissions monitoring technology is also used to tackle the massive environmental problem of millions of leaking orphan oil and gas wells across the United States. The company’s high-sensitivity analysers, using OA-ICOS laser-based technology, can detect methane emissions from decommissioned wells down to one part per billion.
