Centerpoint Energy uses ZEVAC to minimize methane releases in pursuit of NET ZERO emissions by 2035

ZEVAC is part of Centerpoint Energy’s Comprehensive Environmental Strategy.

Employing ZEVAC® (Zero Emission Vacuum and Compressor), an innovative and environmentally responsible technology that uses compressed air to suction a pipeline segment, transferring the gas to an adjacent pipeline so it is not released into the atmosphere. In 2021, Texas Gas Operations employed ZEVAC equipment for first time in the state to minimize methane release and natural gas flaring for a project near Fresno.
