Thermal use of smouldering mine dump fires

Uncontrolled smouldering fires on coal mine dumps have a negative impact on the environment and climate due to the gas emissions. Taking a long term view, monitoring and securing heat sectors on mine dumps is also very costly. As part of this project, the partners are investigating the possibilities for thermal and energy use of mine dump fires.
