Science Mining and Clean Coal Technology in China

Wang Jiachen, Wang Lei, Yang Yang, and Yang Shengli
Abstract—Coal resource is the main energy resource in China. And from the structure of primary energy consumption, it can be seen that China is not rich in energy reserves, especially there is a shortage of oil gas resource. Fortunately, coal resource is rich relatively; therefore, coal is the most important energy in China, which takes a proportion about 70 % in China energy consumption structure. This current situation cannot be changed in short term, however, reasonable exploitation and utilization of coal resource will play a vital role to energy strategy in the future. Thus, the concept of science mining arises under this background. Science mining was put forwarded by Chinese scholars based on the ideas of sustainable mining, circular economy, green mining and responsibility mining. The word is an accumulation of a large system: engineering, economic, management and social responsibility. How to develop scientific mining, which requires not only sophisticated theory as a guide, but also need to continued explore and summarize in practice, continue to improve science mining theory to guide the practical work. This paper describes the science mining connotation and clean coal technologies in science mining, it also raises some questions and suggestions of science mining.

Index Terms—Clean coal technologies, green mining, science mining, sustainable mining.
