Results and Outcomes
Guizhou produces more than 100 million tons of coal annually, but the accompanying CMM is rarely recovered and utilized. This is due largely to a lack of CMM project information that identifies and promotes international cooperation for CMM recovery and use opportunities. This project will promote CMM project development by providing free, focused, and updated information on 45 coal mines in Guizhou to international project developers.
