Technology Transfer Workshops


Each year, the Natural Gas STAR Program conducts a series of Technology Transfer Workshops focusing on issues related to methane emissions reduction from individual industry sectors and operations. Full workshop proceedings are available below back to 2010. Earlier workshop information is also available for reference. See the Technology Transfer Workshops Archive page. However, for the latest data and information, EPA recommends referring to the most current workshop proceedings below.
