The Denver Post reports that “a Lakewood company has found a way to capture a byproduct of the booming energy economy — natural gas flared at remote oil well sites.”  

“Robert Zubrin, the founder and president of Lakewood-based Pioneer Energy, has guided a team in designing the Mobile Alkane Gas Separator. The unit captures the waste byproduct of drilling with hopes of putting a dent in the 270-290 million tons of CO2 emissions produced worldwide every year from gas flaring while also turning a profit.”
