To solve the problem of security and ecology will help degassing, the Professor noted. Earlier this method was used in the mines quite frequently. Karaganda experts even were his ancestors.
Drizhd Nikolay, Professor, honored miner of Kazakhstan: — This problem 60 years ago was engaged in the coal miners. But for various reasons this was abandoned. According to the Professor, each layer is up to 20-30 year cubic meters of methane. Gas greatly impedes the extraction of coal. Therefore, in the country gradually returned to degassing.
