Tagebau Garzweiler: Brown Coal Mine in Germany

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The European Union still relies on coal for about 20% of the region's electricity generation as of 2018.  With much of Europe's best coal resources having long since been depleted, most of this power is produced by burning lignite, a lower quality type of coal.  Lignite is generally extracted via large opencast mines like the Tagebau Garzweiler in the North Rhine Westphalia state of western Germany.   Contributor XL Creations brings this recently-expanded mine to life with this drone video.
