Abstract/Description

Svalbard is a Norwegian Archipelago located in the Arctic Circle that has a long history of coal-mining. The coal is used by the local power-station to provide electricity to the residential settlements, as well as being exported to countries, e.g. Norway and Germany. Bulk coal fly-ash (CFA) produced from the Longyearbyen Power-Station was collected by Dr Lisa Mol in 2014. Here we report the first geo-toxicological investigation of CFA derived from this Artic region.
