Many mining operations take place in remote parts of the world where access to large electric utility feeds are unavailable or require significant investments in electrical transmission and distribution. Many sites have easier access to a natural gas power system infrastructure. For coal mines, CMM emissions can be significantly decreased through the recovery and use of drained gas.
