LDAR Sim - Highwood Emission Management - Emission Reduction Experts

The Leak Detection and Repair Simulator (LDAR-Sim) is a virtual world that replicates methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. Highwood’s President, Thomas Fox, is the lead inventor of LDAR-Sim alongside colleagues from the University of Calgary. LDAR-Sim is an open-source tool that can be applied to many diverse problems, with applications for industry, regulators, innovators, researchers, and others. At Highwood, we leverage the power of LDAR-Sim for many of our projects. We also contribute regularly to the open-source LDAR-Sim framework as part of our commitment to innovation.
