We invite you to take part in the unique 9th International Brown Coal Mining Congress in Bełchatów. It will be held in Bełchatów - Poland’s largest mining and power engineering centre, between 11 and 13 April 2016.
“BROWN COAL AS A SAFEGUARD OF ENERGY SECURITY”
On those days, Bełchatów will be the centre of lignite mining not only of Poland but of the world as a whole. It will become the place where people from the mining and power industry will integrate and build mutual relationships.
We believe that during the 9th International Brown Coal Mining Congress, issues will be tackled related to the major sector of the Polish mining industry that is lignite mining. Academics, experts and persons closely related to the mining industry will discuss subjects of importance for the economy, related to the future of the cheapest energy source that is brown coal, as a major factor in safeguarding Poland’s energy security.
We intend to include the following issues in the subject scope of the Congress:
- Lignite resources as a guarantee of energy security.
- Open-cast lignite mining – the time consuming investment in new deposits and mining areas.
- Poland as a country endowed with brown coal deposits, utilising its resources wisely and prudently.
- Maintaining the current level of lignite excavation and its prospective increase.
- Overcoming threats in mining activities.
- Environmental impact of opencast mines.
- European climate policy and the striving towards carbon emission reduction.
- Brown coal as an alternative to other primary energy sources in the world’s power industry of the present century.
- Lignite as a competitor to other energy sources.
- Modern carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies.
- The European Emissions Trading System (ETS).
- Reclamation and revitalisation of mining areas.
- Continuous improvement of the efficiency of lignite fired power plants as a precondition for maintaining the competitiveness among energy producers in Poland and worldwide.
