Coal Discards

Coal Discards and Environmental Consequences
  • A significant energy resource for many developing global markets
  • Discarded for a reason – poor quality (high ash, low energy, high sulphur, fines, low volatiles)
  • An environmental challenge but also contains significant amounts of useable coal (Low rank coal).
  • A major concern to DERM/ Dept of Research and Resource Management because of future potential environmental impacts.
  • One of the greatest polluters of the environment
  • Subject to spontaneous combustion of discard material, which can emit harmful CO2 & SO2 gases
  • A surface source of acid mine drainage
  • Occupying significant parcels of useful countryside.
  • Often millions of tonnes and when abandoned, remain as huge piles.
  • A trap for solar heat, making it difficult for vegetation to grow, which results in erosion and creates dangerous, unstable slopes.
