Acid Mine Drainage Remediation Projects
The National Mine Land Reclamation Center (NMLRC) focuses on developing and testing acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment methods and assisting watershed groups in completing AMD restoration projects. These systems include alkaline amendment, passive treatment, coal ash and steel slag applications, as well as watershed-scale treatment options. Additional research efforts of the NMLRC include biofuel production on reclaimed lands and the utilization of AMD waste products as soil amendments.
