SMCRA was a response to rapid expansion of surface coal mining in the late s and early s, the effort to create a national, uniform law that applied to surface mining of coal, and efforts to regulate the remediation of strip mined areas following coal extraction.

The Surface Mining Reclamation and Control Act (SMCRA) estab­lishes minimum federal standards for the regulation of coal mining. Using the federal standards as a guide, each state where there is (or may be) surface coal mining may propose a state regulatory program to control mining.

The South Korean government is pursuing a national project to use the complex carbonates found in coal ash to capture CO2 and promote coal ash recycling. One possible approach is the use of coal ash as fill material in mine reclamation, but environmental concerns have so far blocked the implementation of this procedure, and no relevant regulations or guidelines : Hannah Cho, Sang-woo Ji, Hee-young Shin, Hwanju Jo.

Compliance with SMCRA's mining and reclamation standards require mandated state and federal inspections, yet between andas the number of western acres disturbed by mining expanded by.Key regulatory programs include the Title V operating permit program, the enhanced monitoring rule under Title V, the low emission vehicle program and the hazardous air pollutants maximum.
