AVENTO - Advanced Tools for Ventilation and Methane Emissions Control  - RFCR-CT-2012-00004

The prestige enjoyed by INSEMEX Petrosani for many years now, not only at national level but also at international level, is already a fact of public notoriety. An additional confirmation has come once with the engagement in a research project on ventilation and gas emissions management in coal mines funded by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS), this being the first participation of a Romanian institution in this mining research program of the European Commission. The project is being carried out by a consortium of 8 partners representing the industry, research units and universities from 5 different countries: Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland and Romania.

Providing proper ventilation is the primary protection in respect of underground operations, primarily aimed at providing the oxygen content at the values prescribed by the regulations in force and to diminish the value of gas concentration to avoid formation of explosive atmospheres.

Within this project, INSEMEX has to main tasks: i) creating and testing a fast sealing system for mine workings that are affected by the occurrence of events in firedamp mines in order to restore the critical ventilation paths; ii) developing a DSS (Decision Support System) for post-incident management.
