    Coal Mining: The Dangerous Job on EARTH - DOCFILMS The objective of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its power material, and, given that the 1880s, has actually been extensively made use of to produce electricity. Steel and also cement industries utilize coal as a gas for removal of iron from iron ore and for cement manufacturing. In the United States, United Kingdom, as well as South Africa, a coal mine and also its structures are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" normally refers to an underground coal mine. Coal mining has had several developments over the recent years, from the very early days of males tunneling, excavating and by hand extracting the coal on carts to huge open cut and long wall surface mines. Mining at this scale needs the use of dr...

I have produced almost 600 original films, most in English but also in Polish, French, Italian, Spanish and the occassional hint of German and Hebrew. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focussing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!
