Method for removing methane from coal .

A process for removing methane from a subterranean coal deposit is described. A carbon dioxide-containing fluid is introduced into the coal deposit through an injection well and held therein for a period sufficient to enable a substantial amount of methane to be desorbed from the surfaces of the coal deposit. Following the hold period, the injected carbon dioxide-containing fluid and desorbed ...

AN IMPROVED INVENTORY OF METHANE EMISSIONS FROM COAL ...

Different types of coals desorb methane at different rates, but since coal is usually removed from a mine within hours or days of being mined, some methane remains and is liberated from the coal during handling operations. To approximate these emissions, the assumption is generally made that a fraction of the original methane remains in the coal after mining, and that this is emitted ...

Methane - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Methane produced by bacterial decomposition of organic matter is ubiquitous on the Earth and is readily distinguished from thermal methane by bacterial methane's 'light' carbon isotope. Methane is a major by-product of the decomposition of plant material in swamps, oceans, rice fields, and animals and, especially, from cattle. Such bacterial methane can pass directly into the atmosphere ...

The primary function of the Methane Exhauster is to remove methane from "gob vent" bore holes as longwall panels advance. Methane is liberated by mining of the coal seam, and from areas of fragmentation of the overlying strata and the mine floor. The Methane Exhauster can also be used to evacuate reservoirs, degas sealed areas, and abandoned mines as well.

(2) Methane emissions arise from the collapse of the surrounding rock strata after a section of the coal seam has been mined and the artificial roof and wall supports are removed as mining progresses to another section. The debris resulting from the collapse is known as gob and also releases methane or 'gob gas' into the mine.
