The University of Miskolc and Hungarian gas transmission system operator FGSZ Földgázszállító are cooperating on a HUF 869 million project to develop a way to gauge methane emissions of gas networks, the school told state news wire MTI.
The three-year project, supported by HUF 518 mln in state and European Union funding, started in the summer of 2022.
Judit Varga, who heads the university's board of trustees, said the pilot project could become a "Hungaricum" and raise the profile of the school abroad.
The University of Miskolc has over 200 partners in the business sector with whom the school works on projects and submits applications for funding, rector Zita Horváth said.
FGSZ accounts for under 1% of methane emissions in Hungary, chairman-CEO Szabolcs I Ferencz said.
