Workshops on Best Practices in Coal Mine Methane Capture and Utilization

10 - 14 June 2019

Ankara, Turkey; Dnipro, Ukraine

Two (one- and two-day-long) technical sessions on Coal Mine Methane (CMM) were delivered jointly by the UNECE Group of Experts on CMM and the Global Methane Initiative (GMI) in Turkey and in Ukraine. 

The full day session in Ankara was organized in cooperation with the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and the Turkish Coal Enterprises (TKI). It took place on Monday, 10 June, and featured 24 technical presentation divided into eight thematic segments. 

                    

The two-day-long workshop in Dnipro was held within the framework of the Third International Coal Conference titled Ukrainian Coal Mining Industry in the Times of Decarbonisation, which was hosted by the Technical University of Dnipro and organized by the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry and DTEK on 12-14 June. While the UNECE sessions were held only on the first two days of the event, our guests attended the whole conference, benefiting also from the discussions taking place on Friday, 14 June. During the part organized by UNECE, 27 presentations were delivered by the local and international experts.

                    

The objectives of the workshops were to disseminate and encourage implementation of best practices in CMM drainage and utilization, and to promote policies that facilitate development of CMM projects.
