Coal Mine Methane Extraction

BCCK Engineering: Coal Mine Methane Extraction
To reduce the risks of coal mine explosions and environmental impact, BCCK has developed a process to extract methane from mines and remove contaminants such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and water, making it ready for use. Instead of venting the methane from the mine into the atmosphere, the processed or “enriched” methane is used as fuel for mine equipment or sold to gas pipelines for additional revenue. In other words, coal mine methane processing helps mining companies increase profitability while increasing safety and environmental responsibility. Everybody wins."
