Coal mine methane (CMM): Methane released from coal and surrounding rock strata as a result of mining activity. In some instances, methane that continues to be released from the coal bearing strata once a mine is closed and sealed may also be referred to as coal mine methane because the liberated methane is associated with past coal mining
Commissioning of Flare at Beatrix Gold Mine CASE STUDY Methane Recovery at Non coal Mines . Background . Existing methane recovery projects at non coal mines reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 3 million tons
Finally, for mine methane capture and utilization or destruction, this methodology is only applicable to project activities where the identified baseline scenario is a partial or total atmospheric release of mine methane. In case of a partial atmospheric release, some mine methane is flared and/or used for the heat generation only.
