EU institutions have agreed on a new version of the regulation on the reduction of methane emissions from mines. Polish mining accounts for almost two-thirds of methane emissions from this sector in the EU and will soon have to start implementing the new regulations. However, changes to the draft will allow it to avoid significant problems.

Methane is one of the four main greenhouse gases. In the European Union, its annual emission is 378.8 kilotons of CO2 equivalent. This is less than 2,559.7 kilotons of pure carbon dioxide. However, methane has a much greater impact on warming.

The new regulation aims to reduce methane emissions from mines by 30 percent by 2030.
