International Mining Forum – Coal Mine Methane as a Valuable Energy Source


Data: środa 27.02.2019

Godzina/Sala: 10:00 - 18:10 - Sala A

Prowadzący: Michał Drabik - United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)


Coal mine methane can be used as an easily accessible resource in production of heat and electricity.


In light of planned international environmental regulations, soon the effective management of methane may become an economically-driven necessity. What is more, usage of coal mine methane is important for reasons both ecological, considering the fact that emission of methane to atmosphere has a significant impact on global warming, and social, because reducing pollution created by combustion of solid fuels results in increase in life quality in mining regions, and diversification of mines’ products gives a chance to save, at least partially, jobs in mining sector, which are slowly declining along with the progressing decarbonisation of industry.
