Center to Monitor Mine Safety, Strip Mining & Fly Ash

The April 5 explosion at the Performance Coal Company (Massey Coal Company) in West Virginia that killed 29 workers has moved the Center to launch a comprehensive coaling mining and use minotoring program.

The Center opposes strip mining, supports use of cleaner coal, supports coal-to-liquids, promotes converting CO2 from coal into gasoline, and supports beneficial reuse of fly ash.

Mine safety is regulated by the Department of Labor (DOL) Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). MSHA has established a SINGLE SOURCE PAGE of information and resources regarding the Upper Big Branch Mine explosion.
