Methane Sensing for Coal Mining

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Application: The majority (around 60%) of the coal seams currently being extracted worldwide are so far underground that open cast mining cannot take place and, therefore, underground mining techniques need to be used. Consequently, workers have to enter and work in confined spaces. One of the major problems that this creates is the dangers from Methane (CH4) gas which occurs in Mine gas.

Air pollution control for the coal-bed methane abatement industry

Coal-bed Methane Abatement – Coal mine ventilation of methane.

Air pollution control for ventilation air methane industry

by Anguil Environmental Systems, Inc.     based in Milwaukee, WISCONSIN (USA)

Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) released by coal or mineral mining operations, it is also commonly known as Coal Mine Methane (CMM).  The air pollutants from this process have a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide, which is another well known GHG.  As alternative energy technologies have developed, methane is increasingly used to generate electricity and heat.  Landfills and mines represent two of the most abundant sources, however reports indicate that more than 50% of all VAM is exhausted from mine ventilation systems and remains unutilized.

Power Generation

by Babcock & Wilcox MEGTEC     based in De Pere, WISCONSIN (USA)

MEGTEC is actively involved in providing Power Generation solutions for many applications ranging from utilizing process heat recovery systems to utilization with boilers, to recovering and utilizing Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) from coal mines. MEGTEC has developed VAM processing technologies for either abatement only and in combination with energy recovery and utilization. MEGTEC’s proven technologies are destroying methane while generating high quality carbon credits, electricity for coal mines and heating for local communities and facilities.
