Key Approval Granted for First-of-Kind Coal Mine Methane Mitigation Project in North America

MONTREAL, April 28 /CNW Telbec/ – Biothermica announces today it has received authorization from the U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) to proceed with the implementation of an innovative greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction project at Jim Walter Resources' coal mine no. 7 in Brookwood, Alabama. Biothermica will use its VAMOX(TM) regenerative thermal oxidation system to destroy ventilation air methane (VAM – methane gas contained in mine exhaust air) before this potent GHG is released to the atmosphere. This demonstration project will achieve GHG emission reductions of some 40 000 tons of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) annually…more at CNW Group
