The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Profile of Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Production: A Review of Existing Research

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report offers an overview of greenhouse gas emissions profile of coal bed methane production from the existing academic and grey literature. It does not provide any new empirical evidence although additional calculations have been performed to allow for comparison between studies and with data for other sources of natural gas. Having examined the available literature, the report identifies where there are gaps that are relevant to UK development of CBM.
