Methane emissions from the coal sector during coal phase-out
19 February 2021
Methane emissions from coal mining activities remain an important issue in decreasing GHG emissions. There is much uncertainty about methane emission quantification from the coal sector, particularly from abandoned mines. A robust MRV standard for methane emissions from the energy sector should also cover emissions from the coal sector. The capture and utilization of coal mine methane (CMM) and abandoned mine methane (AMM) offers substantial environmental and social benefits and should be promoted using the Just Transition Mechanism.
