The world is undergoing a massive energy transition. Over the next few decades, there will be radical changes in the way we produce and consume energy. India is the world's third largest Coal/Lignite producing country. Coal & Lignite are currently the mainstay of the Indian power sector. In order to keep pace with the unprecedented transitions in the energy sector, perspectives of Coal/ Lignite mining are changing rapidly.
Application of Clean Coal Technology will help to mitigate the negative environmental and health impacts. Calibrated approach towards Mine Closure, Reclamation, and Resettlement & Rehabilitation shall facilitate sustainable development of the mining industry.
Therefore the need of the hour is to deliberate on "Sustainable Coal/Lignite Mining Scenario, Technology, Issues & Approach" in the National Seminar at Neyveli.
This seminar forms a platform for Academicians, Technologists, Regulatory Agencies, Scientists, Executives and Representatives from Central & State Governments, Mining Industries and Allied Industries for purposeful deliberation on the relevant issues/aspects.
This Seminar would be an ideal podium for the interaction of the participants/delegates to understand and implement the critical elements in the areas such as Coal/Lignite mining methods and present trends, Clean Coal Technologies, and Rehabilitation & Resettlement etc that play a key role in the sustainable development of the industry.
