Martin Energy Group (MEG) manufactures such units to generate heat and power for local use from one of the best known of coal-mine hazards – gas. Processes: The gas is burnt in an engine to drive the generator, while hot water from the engine’s cooling system is typically pumped to a heat recovery boiler, the thermal energy subsequently being used for space heating or to produce process steam. The CHP makes constructive use of the methane-rich coal mine gases that are otherwise harmful for the environment. With methane being more than 20 times more harmful a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, capturing even some of it and utilizing it by means of the CHP, can help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions as well as be profitable.


We can supply the engine/ generator, full heat recovery systems, a complete scope of gas handling & scrubbing systems, a climate controlled operator’s room, in one tightly integrated package including iron sponge types.
