The Coal Mining Abatement Technology Support Package assists the coal industry and research partners to commercialise technologies that can reduce (abate) fugitive methane emissions from coal mines.
The Coal Mining Abatement Technology Support Package supports these projects.
Develops and demonstrates a pilot-scale of a novel VAM abatement technology based on the chemical looping concept.
Determines the critical science and engineering issues for the safe operation of VAM capture ducts. The components of large-scale VAM abatement systems will address fugitive emissions at Australian coal mines. The University of Newcastle launched the demonstration of this project in 2017.
This project is progressing three different prototype technologies that will mitigate and use fugitive methane emissions from the ventilation air of coal mines.
Developed an advanced approach and technologies to enhance the:
