Colorado State University will get a total of $1.29 million from industry groups and natural gas companies for a natural gas emissions study. Methane emissions from natural gas transmission lines will be covered by the review, although it won't disclose specific emissions data. "Natural gas can be a reduced [carbon dioxide] solution if done right; but if there's excessive leakage, it takes away a lot of the potential benefits," said Bryan Willson, a mechanical engineering professor at CSU who is heading the study.
