Use of methane accompanying coal seams

We are a leader in the economic usage of methane. Methane captured from the mine methane drainage and ventilation air system not only reduces the risk of methane hazards in mines, but also improves energy efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas emissions into the environment. At present, 60% of the captured gas is converted into energy. In 2017 itself, we captured more than 160 million m3 of methane, of which we utilized approximately 92 million m3. By 2030, the Company intends to increase electricity production from methane fivefold.
