Global Methane, Climate and Clean Air Forum: a joint event sponsored by GMI and CCAC
26-30 September 2022

Building global relationships and capacity to act on methane

The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) is an international public-private partnership focused on reducing barriers to the recovery and use of methane as a valuable energy source. GMI provides technical support to deploy methane-to-energy projects around the world that enable Partner Countries to launch methane recovery and use projects. GMI focuses on three key sectors: Oil and Gas, Biogas, and Coal Mines.

  • Identifying opportunities for emissions reductions
  • Fostering best practices and effective policies
  • Sharing technical resources and strategies
  • Increasing capacity and skills to address methane
  • Hosting webinars and collaborative events
Oil & Gas Sector

Oil & Gas Sector

Methane emissions from oil and natural gas systems result from both normal operations and system disruptions. These emissions can be cost-effectively reduced by upgrading technologies or equipment, and by improving operations.

Biogas Sector

Biogas Sector

Biogas produced from the anaerobic digestion of organic material can be treated to create pipeline-quality natural gas, used directly as a cooking fuel, used to generate electricity, and captured on-site to provide heat and power.
