Carbon Credits from Ventilation Air Methane in Coal Mines
When coal is formed in mines, so is methane. When coal is excavated, methane is released, and for safety considerations, it is diluted down to 0.2-1.0% volume with ventilation air which is exhausted into the atmosphere. This large volume of air with very low methane concentrations has been difficult to capture to date. This wastes methane, a greenhouse gas with a global warming potential of 21, which can generate carbon credits if captured economically. Cemtrex is now marketing a low level Methane Catalytic Destruction Reactor (MCDR) unit for coal mines to economically capture methane in concentrations of up to 0.2% volume. A single full scale Cemtrex MCDR unit can destroy 5000 tons of methane and generate 90,000 carbon credits per year along with producing pollution free thermal energy. This MCDR unit will pay for itself from the sale of carbon credits within 3-4 years. Other competitor units in the market can not economically capture low level methane concentrations and are also more expensive. Hence, Cemtrex MCDR unit offers a combination of smart technology and an investment return that can not be duplicated in today's market.
