Short description: In the Tula coal mining region in Russia, huge volumes of coal wastes are produced and disposed of without consideration of the environment, causing contamination of soils, surface- and groundwater, thereby endangering local ecosystems. The paper characterises mine wastes, establishing their acid generation potential, the leachability and bio-availability of several hazardous constituents and predict the environmental impacts at the disposal sites. Based on this data an evaluation of desulphurization technologies is carried out.
