Kazakhstan ranks 10th in global coal production – approximately 126 million metric tons (Mmt) in 2012 – and 6th in coal mine methane (CMM) emissions, which are projected to exceed 27 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MMTCO2E) by 2020. An overview of Kazakhstan’s coal mining history and current methane recovery and use efforts can be found in the Global Methane Initiative Coal Mine Methane Country Profile: Kazakhstan (June 2015) (PDF) (11 pp, 1 MB) Exit.
