This workshop examines advanced topics related to quantitative optical gas imaging. Optical gas imaging (OGI) has been used as part of Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) programs for many years as a qualitative technology. Recent advancements have enabled quantitative OGI (QOGI) methods to measure emission rates, transforming OGI from a qualitative technology to a quantitative technology. This workshop will discuss the technical basis for QOGI methods. It will also present recent studies examining the accuracy and applications for QOGI methods. Comparisons will be made to other quantitative methods (such as US EPA Method 21) in the context of an LDAR program. In addition, a thorough discussion of OGI detection limits will be examined with implications for both LDAR programs and emission inventories.
