Next generation leak detection approaches seek to reduce emissions of air pollutants, create safer work

a collaborative agreement with EPA’s Office of Research and Development, Flint Hills Resources and Molex,
subsidiaries of Koch Industries, are designing and piloting an innovative system to remotely detect gas plumes
from industrial equipment leaks. The system utilizes a combination of sensors, wireless communication,
user-friendly software, advanced data analytics to provide 24-7 monitoring coverage, and personalized
notifications and reports to key stake holders. We see this approach as facilitating increased stewardship of the
environment, greater safety for our workforce, and more efficient utilization of resources to create value for
our communities.
