3.5. Japan

Although there is only one operating coal mine now in Japan, Japanese organisations had developed significant mining and safety technologies in the past. In recent years, Japanese organisations have been working with overseas coal producers in transferring and developing advanced safety technology through joint projects. The research aim of these projects is to further improve the levels of safety and productivity in current major coal producing countries.

Several joint research projects on coal mine safety technology have been carried out by JCOAL (Japan Coal Energy Centre) in collaboration with coal-producing countries such as China and Australia. Key safety technologies developed include gas explosion prevention technology, roof fall prediction and prevention system, and underground communications and information systems. These technologies and systems are briefly described in this section.
