Coal Mine Methane Project Protocol

The Coal Mine Methane Project Protocol provides guidance to quantify, monitor, and verify GHG emission reductions associated with destroying methane that would have otherwise been vented to the atmosphere from active underground coal and Category III gassy trona mines in the United States and its territories. This protocol was originally adopted by the Reserve Board in October 2009.
