the process of methanogenesis in a coal mine

May

The mining of many materials, from coal, to gold, oil shale and uranium, necessarily destroys the rock strata surrounding materials such as coal, either by removing the overlying surface layer, known as surface mining, or by drilling entry shafts to remove the material, called underground mining (McElfish and Beier, 1990).

This material can produce methane in quantities far exceeding the storage capacity of the coal and surrounding rock (Juntgen and Klein, 1975). The flow of this gas at high rates into the mine workings may be either facilitated or temporarily impeded by the presence of geologic structures or anomalies during mining of the nearby coal seams.

Composition and Origins of Coalbed Gas; Dudley D. Rice, U

The presence of methane-rich gas in coal has long been recognized because of explosions that have occurred during underground mining. Not only is the gas a hazard, but coal mining also contributes to the increasing amount of atmospheric methane, which is a potent greenhouse gas (Boyer et al., 1990).

What are the types of coal?

What are the types of coal? There are four major types (or "ranks") of coal. Rank refers to steps in a slow, natural process called "coalification," during which buried plant matter changes into an ever denser, drier, more carbon-rich, and harder material. The four ranks are: Anthracite: The highest rank of coal.

Methanogens can grow by reducing one-carbon (C1) compounds [CO 2 (carbon dioxide), CO (carbon monoxide), methanol, methylamines, and methyl sulfides], acetate, or coal to methane gas through one of several methanogenesis pathways [4–6].Regardless of the substrate used, a methyl-coenzyme M molecule
