Upcoming Events

International LNG Forum

28–29 February 2024, Doha, Qatar

The International LNG Forum, hosted in Doha, Qatar from 12-13 November 2023, holds great significance as the global gas market undergoes radical shifts due to the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war and the resulting sanctions on Russian gas exports. These developments have created challenges and opportunities, particularly for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which aim to diversify their oil and gas markets and revenue streams. The International LNG Forum will address several key topics to drive discussions and provide insights into the LNG industry. These include the increased global demand for LNG, competition between LNG and clean energy in the future, optimizing extraction techniques, expanding LNG transportation and shipping vessel capacity, building sustainable supply chains, enhancing asset effectiveness and equipment modification, embracing digital transformation, and addressing decarbonization and low-carbon LNG production. The event will also cover important themes related to HSE, LNG storage, cost efficiency, and effectiveness. Over the course of the two event days, delegates will have extensive opportunities to network, discuss the future of the industry, and forge partnerships to advance the LNG industry toward a sustainable and prosperous future.

Introducing WasteMAP: A New Tool to Track and Reduce Waste Methane Emissions

29 February 2024, Virtual

Until recently, methane emissions from landfills and waste have flown under the radar, and their contribution to the climate threat has largely eluded public awareness. As methane emissions have become more visible with advanced satellite and airborne remote sensing technologies, the waste sector’s ability to address methane emissions has been hindered by a lack of accessible data, actionable best practices, and evidence-based reduction measures. The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and Clean Air Task Force’s Waste Methane Assessment Platform (WasteMAP) addresses these shortfalls by providing an open-source platform that brings together measured, modeled, and observed emissions data with decision support tools and recommendations for policymakers, landfill operators and other stakeholders to develop effective strategies for managing emissions from the solid waste sector.

The webinar will take place on 29 February at 10 a.m. EST (UTC -5) to learn more about the new platform, see a live demo of the tool, and find out how RMI and CATF are supporting decision makers on the ground through country engagement.

The webinar features opening remarks by Carolina Urmeneta, Waste and Circular Economy Program Director for the Global Methane Hub, who will discuss the importance of reducing methane emissions from the waste sector.

GMI Webinar: GHG Emissions from the Domestic Wastewater Sector in India

4 March 2024, Virtual

Why is mitigating methane important and what does it have to do with wastewater? Come learn about municipal wastewater and methane emissions in India. We will explore the nexus of water, energy, and methane emissions.  

India, a nation with a population that has surged from around 683 million in 1981 to over 1.3 billion in 2021, faces an immense challenge in managing its wastewater. The daily generation of sewage is about 72,368 million liters (MLD). While the total sewage treatment capacity is 31,841 MLD spread across 1,469 sewage treatment plants (STPs), the operational capacity is only 26,869 MLD and over 1,093 STPs, indicating a significant gap. Wastewater treatment facilities represent a significant source of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Tetra Tech and TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute, India) conducted a study in support of the Global Methane Initiative (GMI) focusing on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the municipal wastewater sector in India. The study analyzed secondary sources of information and compiled a comprehensive report providing national estimates of GHG emissions, specifically methane emissions. 

The webinar aims to:
  • Discuss the discrepancies in GHG accounting (focused on methane emissions) information presented by different sources to foster a deeper understanding. 
  • Share international experiences in GHG emissions inventory domestic wastewater sector.  
  • Objective is to collaboratively explore potential solutions and actions for more accurate assessments of methane emission accounting from the wastewater sector in India.
Come join us! 

Date and time: Monday, 4 March 2024 at 10:30 pm EST / Tuesday, 5 March 2024 at 9:00 am IST (UTC +5:30 hours)
