What is Coal Mine Methane?

CMM is created when the methane escapes from the walls of a coal mine. This is another type of Bio-Gas that consists of very high concentration of methane (CH4), this gas can be almost the same quality as pipeline natural gas. Instead of allowing CMM to escape into the atmosphere and pollute, it can be captured, converted, and used as an energy source. Converting CMM into energy helps to reduce hazards associated with emissions, and helps prevent methane from migrating into the atmosphere and contributing to local smog and global climate change, and ground water contamination.


Coal Mine Methane is a rather new source of Bio-Gas that is being utilized for power generation. Our company is dedicated to being a primary innovator in this market. We are presently searching to find project sites and develop systems. Bio-Gas Technologies has completed its first CMM project, a 3.7 MW system in West Terre Haute, Indiana. This is one of the first CMM projects in the United States.

The EPA's Methane Outreach Program estimated that in 1999 there was $50 million in direct gas sales associated with Coal Mine Methane projects.
