Methane recovery and harnessing for energy and chemical uses at coal mine sites

State of the art review on adsorption processes for methane concentration in coal mines ventilation emissions. Design and operation of lab-scale units for adsorption, regenerative combustion and partial oxidation.

Preparation of carboneaceus and avanced material for methane separation in air-methane mixtures; selection of active materials for membrane modules used in gas separation; deveolpment of permeation models; analysis of the implementation of the mentioned techonologies to other processes generating lean methane emmisions (water treatment), also considering the management of the generated wastes.
