Assessing Emissions from Active and Abandoned Coal Mines

Coal mine methane CMM and abandoned mine methane AMM are by-products of underground coal mining. The quantity and the emission rate of CMM and AMM may vary depending on the type of mine gas content of the mined coal seam and gas sourced from strata and coal beds in overlying and underlying formations affected by mining. Therefore if a...
