Coalmine Methane Production Discussed in Ukraine

December 13, 2013

Ukraine is among the top five pollutants of the atmosphere with coalmine methane. This substance has been in low demand in Ukraine in spite of all the efforts of the government to engage companies in coalmine methane production.

Coal production has been growing in Ukraine during the past several years, and 155 large mines work on methane formations. That’s where about 1,400 cubic meters of methane is issued per annum. Only 35 mines are capable of gathering it. Coalmine methane production issues were discussed in Kiev on December 10 at a seminar organized by the parliament’s committee for fuel and energy. Experts from Germany and the US attended.
