PICTO

Production Face Environmental Risk Minimisation in Coal and Lignite Mines

Project Coordinator: Instytut Mechaniki Górotworu PAN, Kraków

Manager in GIG:
dr hab inż Eugeniusz Krause, prof. GIG

Duration of the project: 01.09.2018 - 31.08.2021

The main objective of the PICTO project proposed is "to develop an ICT system to eliminate or minimise undesired and unplanned production stoppages due to increased gas emissions at coal faces through the use of Integrated production
process and environmental monitoring and control systems”.
 
The project objective will be achieved through:
  • Systematic testing and monitoring of underground gas emission and ventilation conditions at faces and numerical modelling to optimise face monitoring and environmental control designs.
  • Systematic monitoring of gas drainage performance of drainage boreholes and numerical modelling to optimise face and tailgate gas monitoring and environmental control designs.
  • Development of an ICT software tool and demonstration of the control procedures.
