This project aims to develop a methodology to manage environmental impacts and risks during and after coal mine closure and provide a generic tool that allows the industry to implement the methodology at any site. MERIDA will develop a best practice manual to be used by industry and decision-makers to assess systematically the major closure environmental risks, both qualitatively and quantitatively. IMG PAN has been involved in subsidence and gas emission risks.
