Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Poland's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 29th in the world. Reducing methane emissions from coal mines is a priority for Poland. Approximately 75 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—34.9 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.

Zgodnie z danymi Raportu EPA o globalnych antropogenicznych emisjach gazów cieplarnianych innych niż CO2, w roku 2005 Polska zajęła 29. miejsce w świecie pod względem poziomu antropogenicznych emisji metanu. Priorytetem dla Polski jest więc ograniczenie emisji metanu z kopalń węgla. Około 75% antropogenicznych emisji metanu —34.9 MMTCO2E—pochodzi z branży rolniczej (zagospodarowanie nawozu naturalnego), kopalń węgla, wysypisk oraz zastosowań gazu ziemnego i ropy naftowej.

Methane Sites

The map shows completed and potential methane abatement, recovery, or use projects.

  • Use the check boxes to determine which sites to display on the map.
    • GMI sites are facilities at which methane abatement, recovery, and/or use projects have been identified or completed.
    • Non-GMI sites identify potential or existing projects that are not supported by the GMI.
  • Click a cluster of sites (i.e., numbered circles) to zoom to a region.
  • Click an individual site to view a summary.
  • For more site details click on the highlighted link.

Note: The placement of map icons is approximate, so the zoom-in feature is limited to avoid misrepresentations. Please contact us us if you have more accurate information about the location of a project or site.
