  • TITLE: The Effect of Brown Coal Mining on the Environment and Health of the Population in Northern Bohemia (Czech Republic)

    AUTHORS: Petr Vrablik, Eliska Wildova, Jaroslava Vrablikova

    KEYWORDS: Coal Mining, Health of Population, Sustainable Development, Northern Bohemia, Air Quality

    JOURNAL NAME: International Journal of Clean Coal and Energy, Vol.6 No.1, January 10, 2017

    ABSTRACT: Coal mining has proven negative impacts on the landscape and health of inhabitants. Solid dust particles and SO2, which are the main polluting substances in coal mining and burning, are the main causes of diseases in areas with intensive coal mining. This contribution deals with areas in the Czech Republic which have the greatest problems in this regard, being North Bohemia (Chomutov, Most, Teplice and ústí nad Labem districts). It is an area with considerable anthropogenic activity, mainly due to the intensive mining of brown coal, which has a direct effect on the health of the inhabitants of the entire ústí nad Labem region. Along with the growing number of inhabitants, energy consumption demands are constantly increasing. Nevertheless, it’s important to focus primarily on renewable energy sources, which will ensure the sustainable development of the environment and society. At the same time, the question arises, which energy sources can potentially be utilized here after mining ends (2052). In terms of geography, wind energy has the greatest potential in this area. This and associated issues are dealt with by the project “Sustainable Forms of Management in an Anthropogenically Burdened Region” at the Faculty of Environment at the University of Jan E. Purkyně in ústí nad Labem.
