Potential for enhanced coalbed methane recovery CCC/252

CCC/252 - ISBN: 978-92-9029-574-7

The recovery rate of methane is usually limited by the coal seam gas pressure and diffusion rate and, as a result, not all the available gas can be recovered. By injecting gas into the seam, further methane can be liberated. ... More...

Developments in oxyfuel combustion of coal, CCC/240

CCC/240 - ISBN: 978-92-9029-561-7

In oxyfuel combustion, coal is fired in a mixture of oxygen and recycled flue gases to produce a concentrated stream of CO2 which can be purified for sequestration through physical separation processes. Despite the successful... More...
