This data explores the locations of potential markets for sulfide-enriched coal waste as well as how much might be applied on soil for amelioration. This then placed me in a position to estimate the transport costs for the material from their source coal mines to destination regions. The ability of farmland to absorb the entire stream was considered as well as a first attempt at environmental costing using a carbon footprinting calculation.
