Given the long term socioeconomic and economic importance of Australian coal mining, introducing clean coal technologes will lower green house gas (GHG) emissions and guarantee long-term viability of this sector of the mining industry, particularly in rural Queensland.

Any mitigation strategy has to be ultimately economically and environmentally sustainable. Therefore our research project aims to implement and test novel methanotrophic biofilters and diazotrophic cyanobacteria cultivation for CH₄ and CO₂, remediation from mine ventilation air whilst generating value adding co-products. such as biofuels and biopolymers from the biomass generated in both stages of the remediation approach (Fig.1)
