Three bituminous coal samples, from Salt Range, Makarwal, and Khost coalfields of Pakistan, were subjected to a bioassay, based on WBC-2, for determining the potential of biogenic methane generation from higher-rank coals. Under strict anerobic conditions, maximum methane yield was observed from Makarwal coal sample, that is, 0.275 ┬Ámoles per gram of coal. The results supported the idea of inhibited susceptibility of higher-rank coal toward biogenic methane generation. Low-rank coal still appears as a favorable target for stimulation or regeneration of methane, though, before achieving commercial-scale methane generation, there are a number of crucial factors, which need to be addressed.
