Workshop: Post-Mining Perspectives: Capture and Use of Abandoned Mine Methane and Mine Reclamation and Revitalization of Post Mining Areas

26 - 26 February 2020

Hotel QUBUS, Nadwiślańska Street 6, Cracow, Poland

A full-day-long workshop titled Post-Mining Perspectives: Capture and Use of Abandoned Mine Methane and Mine Reclamation and Revitalization of Post Mining Areas was held within the framework of the XXIX School of Underground Mining organized by the Mineral and Energy Economy Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Faculty of the Mining and Geoengineering of the AGH University of Science and Technology.

 

The main focus of the event was given to:

  • Planning and designing AMM projects;
  • Policies and regulations pertaining to mine closure and AMM capture and utilization; as well as
  • Transition of the coal sector and revitalization of post-mining areas. 

         

         

         

For more details please see a draft agenda in the tab below.

More pictures from the session, as well as recordings of the presentations (access code is necessary -  please contact the Secretary of the Group for more details), can be found on the page of the School of Underground Mining dedicated to our workshop (please click the yellow button – „Galeria zdjęć z sesji”).

Please note that the workshop is to be followed by the event focused on financing AMM projects and standards for mine closure that will be held later this year, back to back with the 15th annual session of the Group of Experts on Coal Mine Methane.

More about the Group's work on AMM can be found here. At the dedicated page you will get an access to the newly issued document Best Practice Guidance for Effective Methane Recovery and Use from Abandoned Coal Mines. Please see also a press release announcing issuance of the document.
