Tackling Australia’s Coal Mine Methane Problem
This report is an in-depth briefing from EMBER on the scale of methane emissions from Australia’s coal mines and potential actions to reduce leaks and mitigate their impact on the climate.
Ember has conducted an in-depth analysis to equip policymakers and campaigners to understand the scale of methane emissions from Australia’s coal mines.
The report provides an overview of the policy levers and practices which could lead to a reduction in coal mine methane, and makes recommendations targeted at improving the measurement, reporting, mitigation and, ultimately, avoidance of coal mine methane emissions. Particular focus is given to Queensland and New South Wales - Australia’s two largest coal mining states.
