In summary, these results allowed to show that the shipment of coal in Colombian ports has a negative impact on marine sediments, and that these effects are quantitatively measurable in cellular models, suggesting that these residues aren’t at all inert and interact with biota. In this sense, the aqueous extract coal, in the same way as sediment particles would do, it is also bioactive in a fish toxicity model, what produces genomic alterations in them.Coal is one of the main economic resources to developing countries who have reserves of this mineral, which provides industrial raw materials and generates a considerable amount of employment opportunities for people living in areas of mining influence.
