Caption: Domestic heating fuel. A miner shovelling lumps of lignite (brown coal) outside his house. The coal is supplied free to workers at the open cast mine where he is employed. Brown coal has a relatively low calorific value and burns inefficiently. Its combustion produces high quantities of sulphur dioxide and smoke particles. Photographed near Most in the Czech Republic.
