It enables 8.9 million normal cubic meters (m3 at ideal conditions) of methane per year to be used for power generation and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 1.4 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year. Methane’s global warming potential is 25 times more than that of CO2. Up to 1,020,000 Nm3/h of ventilation air methane and 60,000 Nm3/h of coal mine methane are thermally oxidized in the project using Durr’s Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) technology. Up to 300,000 Nm3/h of hot exhaust gas is delivered to a boiler to generate water steam, which is used for the generation of up to 30 megawatts of electricity by a turbine generator.
