Effect Of Coal Based Industries On Surface Water Quality

Patra, J (2010) Effect Of Coal Based Industries On Surface Water Quality. BTech thesis.



The expected increase in the use of coal as an energy source has resulted in several investigations into environmental cycling of coal related pollutants. Among these is the release of various liquid effluents, which are associated with coal during the carbonization, cleaning and combustion processes. The coal based industries, such as by-product coke-plants, coal washeries and thermal power plants release their liquid effluents, which are needed urgent attention for the treatment, before they are discharged into the fresh water streams. There is also the release of ash pond decant into the local water bodies from the coal-based industries.
The objective of this study is to analyze the environmental impacts of waste water discharged from coal based industries and need to recognize that effects are both positive and negative.
