Environmental Protection Agency. Office of Radiation Programs.]. The purpose of this study is to assess potential radiological impacts of utilizing pulverized fly ash (PFA) as a constituent in ordinary Portland cement.

For this purpose, the activity concentrations of Ra, Th, and 40K in samples of PFA and Portland cement containing 15%, 20%, and 25% by mass PFA were measured using gamma-ray spectrometry Cited by: 6. Environmental impacts of coal mining and coal utilization in the UK Deniz Mamurekli1 Coal has remained the main source of energy in the UK from to the end of s, and it still plays an important role in the power generation.

This chapter addresses key issues associated with the utilization of coal in the United noted in Chapter 1, although the committee’s task is broad and encompasses the entire coal fuel cycle, the congressional framers of this study requested that it focus primarily on the “upstream” aspects of the coal fuel cycle, recognizing that the research and development (R&D) aspects.

Traditional growth in coal utilization will be from increasing electricity demand, while additional growth will be from increasing demand for liquid fuels. Growing concern over the impact of CO 2 on the environment has lead to research and development on coal utilization strategies and technologies that mitigate CO 2 released to the atmosphere File Size: KB.

The environmental impact of the coal industry includes issues such as land use, waste management, water and air pollution, caused by the coal mining, processing and the use of its addition to atmospheric pollution, coal burning produces hundreds of millions of tons of solid waste products annually, including fly ash, bottom ash, and flue-gas desulfurization.

Phase I of the project included a survey of western US coal mines and an assessment of emissions from a power plant burning Western coal. Many communities in developed countries have struggled against the impacts of coal mining. This Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report will comprehensively detail the natural and sociocultural impacts associated with the mining and use of coal in Hwange and issues contributing to micro-climate change in and around the area.
