In an Australian first, development consent for a new coal mine was refused by the Land and Environment Court of NSW (the Court) for reasons that included its material greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and contribution to climate change. This decision is the latest in a …
"The construction and operation of the mine, and the transportation and combustion of the coal from the mine, will result in the emission of greenhouse gases, which will contribute to climate change," Chief Judge Brian Preston said in a judgement handed down by …
Post-Mining Activities: Some methane remains in the coal after mining and is released during subsequent processing and transportation. Abandoned Mines: Methane emissions from abandoned mines are not quantified and included in U.S. inventory estimates, but may be significant.
"Wrong time because the GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions of the coal mine and its coal product will increase global total concentrations of GHGs at a time when what is now urgently needed, in order to meet generally agreed climate targets, is a rapid and deep decrease in GHG emissions. These dire consequences should be avoided.
Methane emissions declined steadily from 1990 to 2001, as emissions from coal mining and landfills fell, then rose from 2002 to 2009 as a result of moderate increases in emissions related to energy, agriculture, and waste management that more than offset a decline in industrial emissions of methane over the same period.

May 02, 2019· Colorado's Legislature aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the state sharply in coming years, and by at least 90 percent by 2050 — a move cheered by …
U.S. concludes lifting of coal sales ban will speed up release of greenhouse gases — but says it won't affect overall emissions
Second are emission factors for use in estimating carbon dioxide emissions from coal consumption by State, with consuming-sector detail. These emission factors are based on the mix of coal consumed and the basic emission factors by coal rank and State of origin.
Preston CJ ultimately found that development consent for the mine should be refused on a range of reasons, of which greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were only one: In short, an open cut coal mine in this part of the Gloucester valley would be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
An Australian state government leader has intervened to fast-track a proposed coal mine days after voters rejected tougher action to curb greenhouse gas emissions in a federal election
As part of its investment in research and development of low-emissions coal technologies, COAL21 has invested in two projects aimed at addressing the safety concerns associated with implementing technology for lowering greenhouse emissions from mine ventilation air.
Jan 29, 2019· China, already the world's leading emitter of human-caused greenhouse gases, continues to pump increasing amounts of climate-changing methane into the atmosphere despite tough new regulations on gas releases from its coal mines, a study shows. China is the world's largest producer and consumer of ...
Global estimates of methane emissions from coal mining show a large variation, in part due to the lack of comprehensive data from all major producing countries. USEPA estimated in 1994 that global emissions from coal mining in 1990 were in the range of 24 - 40 Tg.5 The large range is a result of the use of global or regional
Court rejects Australian coal mine due to greenhouse gas emissions News . A landmark court decision to reject a proposed NSW coal mine on the basis of its expected greenhouse gas emissions could have far-reaching implications for future fossil fuel projects in Australia, environmentalists say.
The Underground Coal Mines sector consists of all underground coal mines that liberate 36,500,000 actual cubic feet of methane (equivalent to approximately 17,579 metric tons CO 2 e) or more per year. Facilities in this sector include both underground coal mines under development and those categorized by the Mine Safety and Health Administration as active mines.
