QLM has developed a quantum-enabled, gas imaging Lidar camera, able to visualise and quantify methane leaks at long range caused by oil and natural gas extraction and use.

Supported by BP, National Grid, AMETEK Land, and the UK Government, the camera represents a step-change in measuring emissions of methane, the second most damaging greenhouse gas.
