The project involves capturing methane released at 4 coal mines near to Yibin city in southern Sichuan province. The captured methane is delivered to a newly constructed power plant with a combined capacity of 15 MW to convert it into power. This electricity will then be fed back to the coal mines for on-site electricity use, displacing electricity from the grid. In order to realise the project aim, other equipment and facilities such as gas storage tanks, compressors, and monitoring instruments will be installed as needed. Thanks to the project, an average annual volume of 15.6 million cubic meters of methane will be combusted and converted into electricity annually.
