StFX partners with Altus Group, moving gas sensor technology towards commercial development

March 1, 2017

Saint Francis Xavier University has signed a technology collaboration agreement in an effort to commercialize an innovative gas sensor technology invented at the university. For the initiative, StFX will partner with Altus Group for the exclusive worldwide commercialization usage rights of StFX’s vehicle-based ExACT gas leak detection technology, while Altus Group’s Geomatics division will offer ExACT as a service for energy providers and regulators. The patented ExACT technology reportedly allows users to detect and map the emission of ground-sourced greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. “Altus Group is perfectly positioned to make the most of this technology, given its expertise in big data and analytics, and its great people across the country,” says StFX Project Lead Dave Risk.
