Is coal ash really dangerous?



  1. 0 Votes

    Coal ash is radioactive, and therefore, very dangerous for both humans and the environment. This is because coal contains trace amounts of uranium and thorium, both radioactive elements, that becomes much more concentrated in the ash form after burning. While this can be dangerous in large doses, the amounts released from most coal plants are small enough to be cautiously considered safe. But in large amounts where coal ash is stored, the situation is much more dangerous due to the larger volume of radiation involved.
