Coalbed methane - Wikipedia

Coalbed methane (CBM or coal-bed methane), coalbed gas, coal seam gas (CSG), or coal-mine methane (CMM) is a form of natural gas extracted from coal beds. In recent decades it has become an important source of energy in United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries. The term refers to methane adsorbed into the solid matrix of the coal. It is called 'sweet gas' because of its lack of ...

An environmental risk assessment for coal bed, coal mine and abandoned mine methane operations in

Coal mine methane and abandoned mine methane . CMM is the long established process of removing methane from a working mine toenable planned coal production rates to be achieved safely by capturing methane at high concentrations before it enters the mine roadways. Gas emissions into the face or longwall can then be satisfactorily diluted by ventilation air (DTI 2001b). This in turn makes ...
