In order to encourage advances in coal refuse disposal practices and advances in technology or practices which will enhance environmental protection with respect to coal refuse disposal activities, the department may grant permits approving experimental practices and demonstration projects. The department may grant such permits if:
(1) the environmental protection provided will be potentially more protective or at least as protective as required by this act and department regulations;
(2) the coal refuse disposal activities approved under the permits are not larger or more numerous than necessary to determine the effectiveness and economic feasibility of the experimental practices or demonstration projects; and
