The use of coal-derived wastes as a source of energy

About this webinar

Inevitably, the production of coal creates various waste streams, some of which contain enough residual coal to give them potential as sources of energy. Some types may be used directly or alternatively, reprocessed to recover their coal content. They can form low cost fuels that reduce the demand for fresh coal. Furthermore, their use helps minimise the amounts stored in dumps or settling ponds, reducing their unwanted environmental impacts. This webinar will examine the types of wastes, the amounts generated, and their utilisation for the main coal-producing countries.
