Energy production waste in selected European countries

Year: 2006
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics 2
Author: Diana Rizzolio
Waste is a major environmental concern for the energy sector. Depending on the type of energy, the production process itself will generate substantial quantities of waste. The energy sector generates specific types of waste: waste from mining and upgrading coal and lignite (tailing); waste from oil and gas refining; combustion waste from thermal power stations; waste from air-pollution abatement devices and fi nally the components of the power station itself which must be dismantled at the end of its service life (particularly sensitive in the case of nuclear power stations).
