Utilisation of municipal solid waste as an amendment for reclamation of coal mine spoil dump


Utilisation of municipal solid waste as an amendment for reclamation of coal mine spoil dump



International Journal of Environmental Technology and Management 7(3/4): 407-420

DOI: 10.1504/ijetm.2007.015154

Mine spoil dumps generated due to mining activities pose drastic physico-chemical and biological constraints for sustainable vegetation. Thus an eco-friendly and cost-effective Microbe Assisted Phytoremediation (MAP) is adopted for reclamation of coalmine spoil dumps. The results indicate that MAP is also an excellent tool for fast restoration and productivity of wastelands, 95 99% plants survival rate, provides CO2 sinks, generating fuel, fibre, food, fodder, medicines, etc.
