The University of St.Gallen (HSG) covered our recent research about Climate Pollutant Monitoring from Space. Since global CO2 emissions are a blind spot on the data map we are working. changing that. Using satellite images, we aim to locate all fossil fuel power plants worldwide to track down pollutant emitters. With the help of deep neural networks it is quite possible to identify the type of fossil power plants and to measure the smoke from their chimneys pixel-accurate needed for correct emissions estimations. The goal is to continuously scan all power plants.
