Could Legacy Coal Have a Clean Future?

Coal’s contribution to human industrialization cannot be understated; the fossil fuel acted as a relatively efficient source of power during the Industrial Revolution, making it possible to convert iron ore into iron cheaply. This affordable iron was key to the development of infrastructure, such as the Ironbridge Gorge Bridge, and provided raw materials for the machinery used in industrial-age factories. However, despite coal’s role in humanity’s development, the fuel is a major carbon emitter and has played a major role in global warming. Most countries worldwide have now pledged to transition from dirty fossil fuels such as coal to renewable…

Abandoned Coal Mines Now Providing Winter Heating to Communities in Europe

A ground-breaking project in the English town of Gateshead is using abandoned coal mines to provide winter heating to hundreds of businesses and homes. The former coal community has been drawing heat from the warm water filling the labyrinth of old coal mining tunnels for the last six months. With an estimated one-quarter of homes in the United Kingdom sitting atop networks of coal tunnels, the pilot project shows that using abandoned coal mines for heating could be a feasible option for millions of UK residences. The project provides a means for the UK to leverage coal mines that are…
