Just over three weeks remain to apply to the Mobile Monitoring Challenge (MMC), led by Stanford and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) with technical advice from ExxonMobil.

There’s a big push to develop mobile technologies to monitor and quantify methane leaks at oil and natural gas sites. Mobile monitoring offers the promise of surveying highly dispersed industrial facilities — including smaller and older ones — quickly and effectively.

Stanford and EDF, aided by industry and other expert advisors like those from ExxonMobil, will rigorously field test and compare the most promising new mobile technologies and approaches submitted via the MMC – with extra interest in commercially scalable options. Results will be published in peer-reviewed journals.

Details on the competition, what is required, and the benefits of applying can all be found here.

All applications are due by Oct. 31.
