A standard compensation system on the environmental influences of Chinese coal resource development

Abstract

Themed by the compensation mechanism of the environmental influences of coal resource development, this thesis puts forward a basic framework of a standard environmental compensation system for coal resource development. Based on the consideration of the correlation between environmental costs and environmental capacities, this thesis constructs an evaluation index system of environmental costs and capacities for coal resource development from the three aspects of the natural, ecological, and social environments. For calculating the environmental capacities and costs, relative quantities are introduced and an improved fuzzy mathematical evaluation model is constructed. The evaluation index system of the environmental costs is divided into two types; the first consists of an index that can be directly measured by losses in value and of compensation values that can directly adopt the present values of the index, and the other consists of an index that cannot be directly represented by losses in value and of compensation values that must be measured by the recovery costs, which are the costs of recovering from the present to the normal values. By collecting all compensation values, we can design the standard compensation system for the environmental influences of coal resource development.
