Mexico ranks 25th in global coal production – nearly 15.2 million metric tons (Mmt) in 2012 – and 21st in coal mine methane (CMM) emissions, which are projected to reach nearly 2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MMTCO2E) by 2020. An overview of Mexico's coal mining history and current methane recovery and use efforts can be found in the Global Methane Initiative Coal Mine Methane Country Profile: Mexico (June 2015) (PDF) (13 pp, 1.1 MB) Exit.
