Environmental impacts of processing coal

Apr 07, 2021

Jun 14, 2011 Carbon dioxide, another greenhouse gas, is released in the combustion (burning) process, when coal is used to fuel electric generators and steam engines. As a result, global warming is probably one of the most significant and widely-felt environmental effects of coal mining. References. Alex Gabbard, Coal Combustion: Nuclear Resource or Danger
