12/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper comparing the potential of FAME biodiesel and HVORD as a control strategy to reduce the exposure of underground miners to aerosols and gases emitted by diesel-powered equipment.
11/28/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to develop intrinsically safe, low-power-consumption methane sensors for mapping of methane gas clouds accumulated in underground coal mines.
11/28/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to (1) conduct absolute pressure measurement and recording in both non-permissable and permissable areas of a coal mine and (2) explore methane gas cloud detection, measurement, and visualization.
Integration of Sensing Technologies for Post-Event Monitoring of Hazardous Conditions in the Mining Environment11/22/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to provide detection of ambient conditions in lesser traversed, remote areas of a mine by way of a repeater system with sensing modules capable of linking into the existing, hardened communications and tracking system.
10/22/2016 - Research projectsA project to reduce exposures of underground miners to diesel particulate matter and gases through implementation of control technologies and understanding of the risks associated with exposure to diesel engine emissions.
7/19/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to simulate the development and evolution of natural gas (NG) explosions in mine tunnels.
Development of a Method for the Remote Characterization of Underground Mine Ventilation Control by Multiple Tracer GasesA capacity-building contract to develop a method to remotely characterize underground mine ventilation control by multiple tracer gases.
7/18/2016 - Interagency agreementsAn interagency agreement to develop cryogenic breathing apparatus and supply/filling systems for mine escape, rescue, and refuge.
A contract to develop a liquid crystal (LC)-based nitrogen dioxide monitor housing a sensor which will detect and trigger an audio-visual alarm to warn miners when the concentration of nitrogen dioxide levels exceeds the threshold limits.
A contract to extend communication and hazard monitoring into bleeders or other remote workings in an active underground coal mine.
