Abstract Scope Pollution from coal industry has developed negative perception and demands options for transition. Piloting a project focused on coal as soil amendment can develop coal’s positive role. There is a lack of adequate research evidence on the coal as soil amendment for desert soils to improve quality, crop productivity, and resilience against drought. This paper provides a review of literature on the state of coal use, soil amendments history, past and current research efforts in the use of coal as soil amendment, existing plan of actions and strategy in the use of coal while presenting the planned research project in China, Ethiopia, Somaila and Kenya. The planned research project will use experimental pots, research field plots, and farmers’ fields. On the base of the review and planned research project, the paper will provide an transition option for coal industry while providing recommendations for soil quality and environment improvement.
