Her-Fried Utilization of Coalmine Methane(ID: 100000000000191)
In the German Ruhr district there are industrial hard coal mining activities for more than hundred years. In the whole area there are more than 100 known shafts. The coal-mine-methane captured in this project would otherwise escape directly through cracks and fissures and diffusely through the overburden rocks into the atmosphere. The project couples the production of power with the conversion of the 21 time stronger green-house-gas methane into carbon dioxide.
