A substantial increase in the rate of accumulation of waste dumps in recent years has resulted in greater height of the dump for minimum ground cover area and also.
Coal starts as peat, or sections of partially decomposed organic matter that accumulate on the earth’s surface.
Over millions of years, the peat is buried and heat and pressure transform it into increasingly pure forms of coal called lignite, sub-bituminous, bituminous, and anthracite coal.
These fossil fuels are limited or nonrenewable resources; after they serve their fuel purpose, they. Sub-bituminous coal, Bituminous coal and Anthracite. Open cast mining and underground mining (room pillar, long wall, drift, shaft, slope mining) are some types of coal mining.
Proper Environment impact assessment of coal mining is very important and here we take. Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes.
These processes also have an impact on the atmosphere from the emissions of carbon which have. The Ecological Impact Of Coal Mining Environmental Sciences Essay. The goal of coal mining is to economically remove coal from the ground.
Coal is valued for its energy content, and since the s is widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. A major part of iron ore, non-ferrous metals, brown coal, building materials and minerals for industry is being excavated in open-cast mines.
This type of mining has a deep impact on the natural strata. Open-cast mining changes geological, hydrological and geotechnical conditions. It influences the existing ecological system and landscape.
