Environmental Protection and Management in BCCL

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AND MANAGEMENT IN BCCL

INTRODUCTION

Mining activities in Jharia Coalfield (JCF) started more than 100 years back and it has been extensively exploited. Unscientific exploitation of coal resources in the past resulted in large scale degradation of the coalfield which has manifested in haphazard infrastructure development, depletion of green belt and overall ecological and environmental imbalances. Land, air, water and soil had been severely affected. On account of multi-seam regime of the coalfield the reclamation process has become a challenge.
