Conducting Pre-Feasibility Studies for Coal Mine Methane Projects Training

The U.S. EPA is developing this training course in support of the GMI and in conjunction with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). This course introduces principles for assessing the potential of developing projects to capture and/or use Coal Mine Methane (CMM). The introduced general approach should be underpinned by mine-specific data and analyses, allowing the principles to be tailored to the unique conditions at each mine. Ideally, such an assessment will lead to project development and implementation.

CMM project developers, third parties, mining company personnel and government officials can all benefit from this training. The course is divided into eight separate modules that are available below.

The China Coal Information Institute, in support of GMI, has translated seven of the course modules into Chinese.
