On the formation of a mine-based energy resource complex
MetadataShow full item record
The paper represents the analysis, which has helped to determine tendencies of the formation of energy resource complex based on the available mining facilities. The approach helps prolong operating life of the mine with the depleted balance reserves or the one being under abandonment. The proposed technologies of generator gas production by anaerobic digestion of organic raw material in the methane-tanks as well as other approaches to the combined formation of new energy systems make it possible to reorient the mine operation. The approach is extremely important for rather depressed mining regions as it helps solve the problem of social strain. Formation of the joint power and chemical production allows both improving economic expediency and preventing negative ecologic impact on surface and underground mine environment. The proposed tendencies make it possible to outline further issues to be highlighted in the following authors’ studies.
