Collection: Shenhua Coal-to-Liquid Impacts in Inner Mongolia (Photo + Video)
GP0ALBIR
A collection of images showing the effects of water shortage on people in the Ordos grasslands in Inner Mongolia. For ten years, the Chinese state-run organisation Shenhua Group, the world's biggest coal producer by volume, has sucked this land dry, exploiting water resources at a shocking scale from these beautiful grasslands to use in its coal-to-liquid project (also known as coal liquefaction, a process for producing liquid fuels from coal) and illegally dumping toxic industrial waste water. Shenhua's operations have sparked social unrest and caused severe ecological damage including desertification, impacting farmers and herders who are facing reduced water supplies in what was once an abundant farming area.
