Description

Pollution of urban geomedia is of a great public health interest due to receiving of large amounts of pollutants from multiple sources including industrial wastes, vehicle emissions, coal and biomass burnings, etc. (Li et al., 2012; Obaidy et al., 2013; Plyaskina & Ladonin, 2009). India is the third-largest producer of coal in the world. Coal is a naturally occurring combustible mate- rial contains elemental carbon, sulfur, hydrocarbons, trace metals, etc. (Chou, 2012). Several environmen- tal issues i.e. acid mine drainage, deposition of toxic compounds, environmental pollution, halting of acid rain, health hazards, storage of solid waste, etc. were observed due to coal burnings (Agrawal et al., 2010; Bhuiyan et al., 2010; Guttikunda et al., 2014; Pandey et al., 2011; Sengupta et al., 2010; Sheoran et al., 2011; Singh et al., 2010).
