Eliminate Methane Emissions. Increase Reliability. Improve Performance.

The Natural Gas industry is committed to eliminating methane emissions by accelerating the replacement of leak-prone pipe, integrating RNG and Hydrogen into the distribution system fuel mix, and adopting new no-bleed automation technologies at gate and distribution stations. Partner with Control Associates to retrofit your existing gate and distribution station equipment to eliminate all bleed gas at these stations.

Which Retrofit Solution Is Best for You?
