GHG Institute’s Evaluation and Comments:
“The GHG Management Institute evaluated GITLCO’s software, called Real-time Environmental Solutions for Flare & Emission Monitoring and Control, in accordance with GHGMI’s software evaluation test protocol. Based on the application of this protocol, our evaluation produced a positive finding indicating that the software provides the functionality required for a competent professional to configure, calculate, and manage data in support of reporting an accurate emission inventory in a manner that is fully consistent with Tier 3 of the 2006 IPCC guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.
This software not only helps track emissions, but also it provides plant operators with better information on flared quantities and helps to pinpoint whichever valves, devices and equipment are venting methane and VOCs into flare headers. In the past, this has been difficult due to the many pipes and processes that are connected to flare networks and the lack of flow meters to identify the source of flared gas. By helping to identify the root causes of flare gas venting into flare headers, the software assists in quantifying the volume of valuable gases burned and the financial impact that loss entails.
