Funding is directed at three elements:

  • research, development and demonstration of technologies and processes associated with coal mining greenhouse gas mitigation including the measurement and monitoring of emissions, avoidance and abatement technologies; 
  • work to address safety and regulatory issues associated with the development and deployment of greenhouse mitigation related technologies, equipment and processes; and
  • assistance to small and medium coal sector participants to develop abatement strategies or undertake feasibility studies to reduce emissions from current and proposed mines.
