Moravian Silesian region, Czech Republic is typical of coal mining and mining gas occurrence. The gas is during the coal mining drawn and further it is exploited as degasation gas. As the mine is closed, the gas is not drawn and it moves freely to the surface which might present a danger of exploitation in the concentration of 5 – 15% CH4 in the air. Methane is the second significant substance in emission causing the greenhouse effect. One of the possibilities of energetic utilization is the gas exploitation for metallurgy. As gaseous alternative fuel for blast furnace, it would present an economic alternative for coke savings.
