ASSESSMENT OF CARBON SEQUESTRATION AT ECO RESTORATION SITE

BCCL has undertaken the carbon sequestration study for quantifying the carbon dioxide being sequestered by the model ecological restoration sites developed at Tetulmari, Sijua area and Damoda, Barora Area through Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad. Amount of carbon sequestered by the ecological restoration may be considered as a parameter for defining the success attained in restoring the ecology of the concerned region.

SOURCE APPORTIONMENT STUDY

This is a study to quantify different sources (different industries/domestic/traffic etc) contributing to ambient air pollution and is process for award of work.

STUDY TO MONITOR OCCUPATIONAL DISEASES

BCCL ensures the regular health examination of the all the work force engaged in mining activities. IME(Initial Medical Examination) and PME(Periodical Medical Examination) are being carried out to monitor the health of the employees. Besides regular periodic health check up of their workers, 10% of the workers identified from workforce engaged in active mining operations shall be subjected to health check up for occupational diseases and hearing impairment through NIOH, Ahmadabad which is the premier institute, under the aegis of the ICMR under the Department of Health Research, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India.. Work has been awarded to NIOH to conduct the health check up of identified manpower.

FIRE SURVEY BY NRSC

The coal mine fire survey/ study was instituted by BCCL through National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO, Deptt. of Space, Hyderabad in Aug., 2013 for delineation of surface coal fires in Jharia Coalfield. NRSC has submitted their report in March 2014, in which they have concluded that the present fire area in the coalfield is only 2.18 sq.km.

DEVELOPMENT OF HYDRO-SEEDER FOR FASTER ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION

For effective and efficient processes falling under different stages of Eco-restoration, BCCL has prepared a hydro-seeder indigenously which can spread mulch, compost, seed and water over a landscape i.e. OB, Mined out land. This will expedite the work of development of green belt and help to restore the ecology.
