Kuva Systems and Montrose Environmental Group Form an IIoT/ESG Collab to Enhance Environmental Data Technology

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) collaborations often bear great fruit, in a manner of speaking. IIoT wouldn’t be what it is without connectivity – the lifeblood of the industry, no doubt – but also the interconnection of innovators coming together to share ideas, pool resources, and set changes into motion. That means safer and smarter assembly lines in factories, new features for fleets of autonomous vehicles, and new monitoring technologies that provide more reliable insights into structures and workflows. The possibilities-become-realities within IIoT are sure to continue encouraging dynamic global change, one use case at a time.

Such is the case regarding a new collaboration between Kuva Systems and Montrose Environmental Group.

For context, Kuva’s IIoT platform provides a fully automated, image-based, continuous methane monitoring and quantification solution. It enables upstream and midstream oil and gas companies to improve their operations and meet priority ESG and methane intensity goals. Similarly, Montrose sees ESG ventures not just as an imperative, but as a modern strategic asset. From testing to remediation to proactive interventions, it is the goal of Montrose to provide comprehensive, environmentally focused monitoring and management solutions that cover water treatment, leak detection and repair, testing and lab services, soil and groundwater remediation, and regulatory consulting for the betterment of our ecosystems.

So, their collaboration:

Montrose has officially added Kuva’s low-cost IR camera and no-false-positive solution to the Montrose Sensible EDP cloud solution, which integrates with nearly any air, water, or soil sensors to give organizations the ability to monitor environmental data within a single, easy-to-use platform. Together, this enables customers to conduct image-based root cause analyses of emissions with reliable, real-time insights.

Per Steve Davis, Senior Vice President of Environmental Data Solutions at Montrose:

“According to the EPA, methane accounts for about 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions. A cutting-edge methane monitoring program is crucial for real-time leak detection and mitigation. Our collaboration with Kuva enables companies to comply with upcoming methane regulations and reduce methane emissions.”

And per Robert Ward, Vice President of Business Development at Kuva:

“Field operations and environmental teams at upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities are facing increasing pressure to identify and fix the root cause of super emitter events. Field operations are already stretched with day-to-day tasks, and non-visual sensors can cause a flood of non-actionable alarms without actionable insights. (Especially because most super emitters are intermittent.) Kuva's image-based solution is a cost-effective way for operators to react to new pressures as a result of methane fees and the upcoming super emitter response program, and Montrose is supporting this in a big way.”
