Towards a Practical CDM Methodology for Coal Mine Methane
Article from: OGEL 3 (2005), in Coal & Geosequestration
Methane emissions from China's coal mines are increasing annually as coal production rises. Coal mine methane (CMM) utilisation provides a means of mitigating these emissions, which have a high global warming potential, but there are too few schemes and development is slow. A methodology is therefore being developed to facilitate the application of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) financing to stimulate the construction of more CMM utilisation schemes and encourage maximum methane destruction in a cost-effective manner. The approach relies on technology, which has been demonstrated and ...
