When coal is formed in the mines, so is methane. When the coal is excavated, methane is released and since methane in concentrations of 5-15% is explosive, it is diluted to levels 0.2-1.0% with ventilation air as a safety measure. This very large volume of ventilation air with extremely low methane content has been difficult to capture and hence been releasing to the atmosphere. Coal mine emissions of low-level ventilation air methane can be used to generate carbon credits. Methane is a greenhouse gas with global warming potential of 21, meaning that one ton of methane will cause the same amount of global warming as 21 tons of carbon dioxide (21 equivalents CO2). One ton of carbon dioxide captured results in one carbon credit.
Cemtrex is now marketing a low-level Methane Catalytic Destruction Reactor (MCDR) unit for coal mines. A single full-scale Cemtrex MCDR unit can destroy approximately 5000 tons of low-level methane and generate 90,000 carbon credits per year along with production of pollution-free thermal energy. It will require 48,000 Cemtrex MCDR units to treat all the low-level methane from all US coal mines. "Based on approximate cost of
