Sulfur Dioxide & Exposure Concerns
 
04:08
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is one of a group of highly reactive gasses known as oxides of sulfur. It is a colorless gas with a pungent and suffocating odor. It is a common air pollutant found in many parts of the world. Much of the sulfur dioxide in the air comes from the burning of coal and oil at electric power plants. Other sources of sulfur dioxide come from industrial facilities that use coal or oil, petroleum refineries, cement manufacturing, metal mining and processing, paper pulp manufacturing and copper smelting. Trains, large ships and some diesel equipment may burn high sulfur fuels which also contributes to sulfur dioxide in the air. Sulfur dioxide has also been used as a food preservative and for food processing; as a disinfectant; for bleaching flour, fruit, grain, wood pulp, wool, textile fibers, wicker, gelatin and glue; and for making other chemicals. It is also used for wastewater treatment. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides can react with precipitation, oxygen and other substances in the atmosphere to form acid rain. People can be exposed to sulfur dioxide outdoors by breathing polluted air. This is more likely to occur in the summer, when the sun and hot temperatures react with pollution to form smog. Natural pollution sources, such as plant decay and volcanoes can also expose people to this gas. People who live near or work in facilities that utilize sulfur dioxide or produce it as a by-product may also be exposed. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, “Breathing sulfur dioxide can irritate the nose, throat, and lungs, and cause coughing and shortness of breath. Short-term exposure to sulfur dioxide can cause stomach pain, menstrual disorders, watery eyes, inhibition of thyroid function, loss of smell, headache, nausea, vomiting, fever, convulsions, and dizziness.” They also report, “Short-term exposure to high levels of sulfur dioxide in the air can be life-threatening by causing breathing difficulties and obstructing airways, especially for people with lung disease. Long-term exposure to persistent levels of sulfur dioxide can cause chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and respiratory illness. It can also aggravate existing heart disease.” These are just a few things to know about sulfur dioxide, exposure risks and potential health concerns.

US Mines & Mineral Resources: "United States: A Ten Talent Nation" 1922 American Motion Picture

Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

Extracting Life: Mining and its Lasting Impressions on Environment & Community - July 2015 webinar
 
01:08:13
Over the last decade, oil, gas and mining operations have expanded dramatically worldwide. As people consume more energy and technology products, the demand for fossil fuels, metals and minerals continues to rise. This increase has fueled a corresponding rise in conflicts, poverty, corruption, pollution and environmental degradation in the communities and countries in which extractive resources are mined. This webinar will look specifically at problems associated with smelting in Peru, mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia, and analyze the extractive industries more broadly in Latin America as well as globally. Speakers: Rev. Jed Koball is a PC(USA) mission co-worker who serves as the Presbyterian Hunger Program’s Facilitator in Peru for International Partnerships and Global Advocacy Campaigns. Robin Blakeman is an ordained PCUSA Teaching Elder, mother, and 8th generation West Virginia resident who works for the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition.

Mining & the Environment: Sustainable or Responsible? by Dr. Gavin Mudd
 
01:34:01
You can access Dr. Mudd's Power Point presentation here--http://ace.aua.am/files/2016/08/AUA-Mining-v-Environment-v-Susty-or-Resp.pdf About the Talk: Modern mining is a truly global industry, supplying ever more minerals and metals to meet growing global demand - but at what environmental and social costs? This presentation will cover the main issues facing modern mining - declining ore grades, bigger mines, giant open cut and underground mines, more tailings and waste rock, more energy-water-pollution issues, greater regulatory, corporate and financial scrutiny, and all the same time as communities are more aware of mining issues. Showing unique data sets and case studies, this talk will demonstrate that modern mining is far from running out of mineral resources but is clearly facing greater environmental risks. Solutions include better regulation, corporate reporting and accountability, as well as informed communities - thereby ensuring a responsible mining sector is contributing to sustainable development. About the Speaker: Dr. Gavin Mudd is a renowned global expert on the environmental sustainability of modern mining, and brings together a unique set of multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge to explore the challenges that the modern mining industry, governments and communities are collectively facing. His 20 years of research work have examined the environmental impacts to surface water and groundwater, waste rock and tailings management, acid mine drainage, rehabilitation, mineral resources, and the sustainability metrics of mining - and this has included detailed studies of almost all sectors of the global mining industry, such as gold, uranium, coal, gas, copper, nickel, platinum group elements, rare earths, mineral sands. To date he has presented or published more than 200 journal, conference and technical papers or reports (nearly two thirds of which are peer-reviewed) - with his research differentiated by the integration of rich data sets, leading the way in quantifying the environmental and sustainability issues affecting modern mining. Dr. Mudd is recognised worldwide for his unique and independent expertise on mining, and is currently Head of Environmental Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where he has collaborated closely with Dr. Simon Jowitt in recent years on the geological side underpinning the environmental issues facing modern mining.

Informative Speech Outline and References Title: Natural Oil Mining and Shipping Benefits and Disbenefits Topic: This speech is about the negatives of natural oil mining and shipping and some of the dangers that come with it, as well as the ways that natural oil benefits us and is used. Purpose Statement: The goal of this speech is to inform the listener of some of the ways that natural oil mining and shipping negatively affect the environment and also how natural oil is beneficial to us as humans. Thesis: Oil is a major resource used throughout the United States and is used in many ways but can be harmful to the environment. Introduction Paragraph Attention Getter: Is Oil harmful to the environment? Are we running out of it by using too much? Are oil alternatives actually better than natural oil? These are some of the questions I asked myself when I first began to research natural oil, also known as crude oil, and fortunately I found all the answers I was looking for. Preview Topic and Purpose: This speech is about the negatives of natural oil mining and shipping and some of the dangers that come with it, as well as the ways that natural oil is beneficial and how it is used in our everyday lives. The purpose of this speech is to inform the listener of some of the ways that natural oil mining and shipping negatively affect the environment and also provide information on the benefits and uses of natural oil. Credibility and Why you chose this topic: This topic is not something discussed often and I think that we need to change that in order to look ahead and start preparing for the future. Preview Main Points: The main points of this speech will be; How natural oil is mined and shipped and what is it used for, How natural oil can be harmful, and major incidents involved natural oil mining and shipping. Transition to Main point: The process of mining and shipping oil is much more complicated than you would think. First Main Point - How is Natural Oil mined and shipped?

Air Pollution Control by the Steel Industry 1970 Iron and Steel Institute
 
00:45
The city of Pittsburgh was the heart of the US steel industry in the 20th century. Smoke pollution was the most visible byproduct of coal consumption, with atmospheric inversions in the city and in the region exacerbating conditions. Smoke's link with industrial prosperity made control of the problem difficult. A smoke control movement developed after the city experienced a brief clean air period in the 1880s and early 1890s due to a brief natural gas boom. But smoke control ordinances and a Bureau of Smoke Control produced only minimal results because of weak regulations and enforcement, and imperfect control technologies. Throughout the period between the two world wars, smoke in Pittsburgh continued to be a serious problem. In 1940, however, after St. Louis had improved its air quality by passing ordinances requiring the use of clean fuel or mechanical combustion equipment, Pittsburgh followed its lead. The ordinance resulted from a consensus that promised that the air could be cleaned by using treated local coal, therefore creating a new industry and maintaining local coal mining jobs. What eventually reduced most of the smoke was the piping of clean natural gas into the city from the Southwest, although the smoke control ordinance should be given credit for accelerating the change. But while smoke pollution was considerably reduced by the 1960s, the metals industry, particularly iron and steel manufacturing, resisted control of their gaseous effluents. In the 1970s and 1980s, however, the efforts of the advocacy organization Group Against Smoke and Pollution (GASP), working to encourage local enforcement of the Clean Air Act, brought about some improvement. But perhaps the most substantial air quality improvements came because of the collapse of the iron and steel industry in the 1980s. Today, pollution from the by-products of coking facilities and automobiles are the greatest source of air pollution in the region. For more on the history of the air pollution control by the steel industry, read the 1954 article Air Pollution Control in the Steel Industry, available at http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/00966665.1954.10467620. This clip is from the 1970 film, In Quest of Cleaner Air and Water, made by the American Iron and Steel Institute. The film describes the steel industry's progress, programs, and research in air and water pollution control. It shows the various types of pollution control procedures and equipment used throughout the steel manufacturing process, including dust catchers, air cleaning systems, furnace air control systems, separators, cooling towers, and waste lagoons. The film explains how airborne pollutants are precipitated away before air is returned to the atmosphere through the basic oxygen process, and how oil, sludge, and particulate matter are separated before water is returned to the mill or discharged. The entire film is available at the Internet Archives and also posted to my YouTube channel.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
 
25:01
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

Massive corporations are blowing up mountains and creating environmental ruins in West Virginia. All this devastation, just to extract some coal. We went to West Virginia to investigate mountain-top removal -- which a way of extracting coal from deposits under mountains. Instead of drilling into the mountain and sending men underground to take out the coal in the traditional way, they just take the whole top of a mountain off.

Environmental Science: High School Learning: Air Pollution ~Topics Covered What is Air and Air Pollution? Causes Of Air Pollution Impact Of Air Pollution Remedies ~Air And Air Pollution -Air: mixture of various components like carbon dioxide,nitrogen,oxygen,water vapor or trace gases (less in quantity for example Argon,Xenon,Helium,Neon,Krypton). -composition of gases: nitrogen (78.08%);Oxygen(20.95%);Carbon Dioxide(0.038);Hydrogen(0.00005%) etc -Air Pollution: any change in the composition of the gases, which have harmful effects on the environment,is called as “Air Pollution”. ~What is the cause of Air Pollution? -Air Pollution is caused due to “Air Pollutants”. Air pollutant are the substances in the air which have an adverse effect on humans and ecosystem. -these pollutant can be any of the following: methane, carbon dioxide,nitrogen oxide,etc. -these pollutants can either be solid, liquid or in a form of gas, naturally produced or man made. -six common pollutants are: ground level ozone,lead,sulfur dioxide,nitrogen dioxide,carbon monoxide,particulate matter. -kinds of pollutants: *Primary pollutants: produced from processes such as ash from volcanic eruption, vehicle exhaustion etc.For example:carbon monoxide (CO),nitric oxide(NO),sulphur dioxide (SO2),nitrogen dioxide(NO2),ammonia(NH3),particulates(PM),volatile organic compounds(VOCs). *Secondary Pollutants: not emitted directly from the environment rather are formed in the air after primary pollutants react or interact with some other pollutants. These are produced from the primary pollutants.For example:sulphur trioxide(SO3),ntric acid(HNO3),hydrogen peroxide(H2O2),sulphuric acid(H2SO4),particulates,ozone(PM),ammonium(NH4+). -there may be pollutants which might fall under both the categories ~Sources Of Air Pollutants 1.

Arcana minimize the environmental impact of their packaging.
 
01:18
Ceramic Arcana has reduced CO2 emissions in palletising of porcelain products incorporating a new system for protecting pallet that does not consume natural gas. This system, pioneered in the field, use an elastic film reel, which fits directly onto the pallet load, getting a perfect plastic material that stabilizes and protects them from weather. The main novelty of this system, unlike conventional systems that use plastic bags made of polyethylene shrink, it does not need a warming of plastic bags by burning natural gas for fitting on the pallet load, which implies considerable energy savings and therefore a reduction in CO2 emissions. That measure joins others already taken in the packaging of our tiles, for example, changing the design of the boxes has achieved a lighter packing, keeping the same amount of product, which means lower paperboard consumption and also reducing the amount of waste produced by the packaging of our after their placement.

√√ Sulfur Extraction and the Frasch Process | Industrial Chemistry | iitutor
 
13:42
https://www.iitutor.com Properties of Sulfur Sulfur is an industrially important element. Mainly used in the manufacture of sulfuric acid. Its properties allow us to easily extract it from the earth. Melting point: . Reactivity: Low, found as pure element in many locations. Solubility: Not soluble in water. Frasch process The modern method for sulfur extraction is known as the Frasch process. This method, which accounts for 60% of the sulfur production, is used to extract sulfur deposits from overlying beds of sand and clay. Sulfur is also obtained in some countries (e.g. Canada) from natural gas deposits that are rich in hydrogen sulfide. The steps of the Frasch process are: • A drill hole is bored down to the sulfur deposit. A series of concentric pipes is then placed into the hole. • Superheated steam, pressurised water at 160 °C and pressurised air are then injected into the sulfur deposit through separate pipes. • Sulfur has a low melting point (113 °C) and readily melts under these conditions. Sulfur is also insoluble in water and has a low density(2.07 g cm–3). Thus, a liquid sulfur-air foam is readily formed. • The high pressure forces this foam to the surface through another pipe. • The liquid sulfur quickly cools and as it solidifies it separates from the water. It is collected in large bins. Sulfur is non-toxic, non-volatile and odourless. Potential environmental problems include: • thermal pollution of the local environment due to the use of superheated steam. Recycling of this hot water is essential. • earth subsidence due to the removal of the sulfur beds. • oxidation of sulfur to sulfur dioxide. This is not a significant problem under the conditions employed.

A Commitment to the Mining Industry - Chinese (中国版本)
 
08:33
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.
How One Gold Mine Transformed Into A Renewable Energy Plant

Steve St Angelo: Gold & Silver Miners Running Out of Ways to Cut Costs
 
01:04:53
Jason Burack of Wall st for Main St had on gold and silver mining and oil and energy expert, Steve St. Angelo of the SRSRocco Report http://srsroccoreport.com/ on for an in depth interview. During this 50+ minute interview, Jason asks Steve about the costs to operate a modern primary gold and primary silver miner. Jason and Steve discuss how since ore grades have fallen so much over the decades how they have made it difficult for miners for have high margins. Jason asks Steve how miners have survived in the past when gold and silver were below their all in production costs in the mid 90s. Steve cites one miner, Coeur D'Alene Mining, who sold hundreds of millions more shares diluting shareholders to survive. Jason and Steve discuss whether miners can sell many more shares in this environment. Jason doesn't think that's likely considering what he hears from his contacts in Toronto and Vancouver where miners normally get financed how there's basically no debt or equity available anymore, except in small amounts at penalty/punitive rates. Jason asks Steve about primary copper miners and what will happen to the gold and silver by-product when the hedges of copper miners come off line and copper miners go bankrupt or shut down mines. Steve thinks this could cause a supply squeeze in the near future unless gold and silver prices rise. Jason and Steve talk about the fundamentals of the market how demand for physical is rising, while the paper price is controlled and how miners are struggling mightily financially just to not go bankrupt soon. To wrap up the interview, Jason and Steve discuss the oil and energy markets, peak oil and how the fracking boom is about to turn into a fracking bust because US shale oil companies are not making a profit without their hedges, they have too much debt and the energy returned on energy invested (EROEI) in shale oil is poor compared to other oil production. Steve and Jason also talk about solar power and how it's probably not a panacea to replace oil and natural gas, at least not until the battery problem is solved. Most rare earths mining is done in China to produce solar panels, making them not as environmentally friendly as people think and silver industrial demand should grow the more solar panels are used.

Air Pollution Near Amravati city with Co2 & Other gases
 
00:56
Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful materials into Earth's atmosphere, causing disease, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as food crops, or the natural or built environment. Air pollution may come from anthropogenic or natural sources. The atmosphere is a complex natural gaseous system that is essential to support life on planet Earth. Stratospheric ozone depletion due to air pollution has been recognized as a threat to human health as well as to the Earth's ecosystems. Indoor air pollution and urban air quality are listed as two of the world's worst toxic pollution problems in the 2008 Blacksmith Institute World's Worst Polluted Places report.[1] According to the 2014 WHO report, air pollution in 2012 caused the deaths of around 7 million people worldwide. An air pollutant is a substance in the air that can have adverse effects on humans and the ecosystem. The substance can be solid particles, liquid droplets, or gases. A pollutant can be of natural origin or man-made. Pollutants are classified as primary or secondary. Primary pollutants are usually produced from a process, such as ash from a volcanic eruption. Other examples include carbon monoxide gas from motor vehicle exhaust, or the sulfur dioxide released from factories. Secondary pollutants are not emitted directly. Rather, they form in the air when primary pollutants react or interact. Ground level ozone is a prominent example of a secondary pollutant. Some pollutants may be both primary and secondary: they are both emitted directly and formed from other primary pollutants. Major primary pollutants produced by human activity include: Sulfur oxides (SOx) - particularly sulfur dioxide, a chemical compound with the formula SO2. SO2 is produced by volcanoes and in various industrial processes. Coal and petroleum often contain sulfur compounds, and their combustion generates sulfur dioxide. Further oxidation of SO2, usually in the presence of a catalyst such as NO2, forms H2SO4, and thus acid rain.[2] This is one of the causes for concern over the environmental impact of the use of these fuels as power sources. Nitrogen oxides (NOx) - Nitrogen oxides, particularly nitrogen dioxide, are expelled from high temperature combustion, and are also produced during thunderstorms by electric discharge. They can be seen as a brown haze dome above or a plume downwind of cities. Nitrogen dioxide is a chemical compound with the formula NO2. It is one of several nitrogen oxides. One of the most prominent air pollutants, this reddish-brown toxic gas has a characteristic sharp, biting odor. Carbon monoxide (CO) - CO is a colorless, odorless, toxic yet non-irritating gas. It is a product by incomplete combustion of fuel such as natural gas, coal or wood. Vehicular exhaust is a major source of carbon monoxide. Volatile organic compounds - VOCs are a well-known outdoor air pollutant. They are categorized as either methane (CH4) or non-methane (NMVOCs). Methane is an extremely efficient greenhouse gas which contributes to enhanced global warming. Other hydrocarbon VOCs are also significant greenhouse gases because of their role in creating ozone and prolonging the life of methane in the atmosphere. This effect varies depending on local air quality. The aromatic NMVOCs benzene, toluene and xylene are suspected carcinogens and may lead to leukemia with prolonged exposure. 1,3-butadiene is another dangerous compound often associated with industrial use. Particulates, alternatively referred to as particulate matter (PM), atmospheric particulate matter, or fine particles, are tiny particles of solid or liquid suspended in a gas. In contrast, aerosol refers to combined particles and gas. Some particulates occur naturally, originating from volcanoes, dust storms, forest and grassland fires, living vegetation, and sea spray. Human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels in vehicles, power plants and various industrial processes also generate significant amounts of aerosols. Averaged worldwide, anthropogenic aerosols—those made by human activities—currently account for approximately 10 percent of our atmosphere. Increased levels of fine particles in the air are linked to health hazards such as heart disease,[3] altered lung function and lung cancer. Persistent free radicals connected to airborne fine particles are linked to cardiopulmonary disease.[4][5] Toxic metals, such as lead and mercury, especially their compounds. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) - harmful to the ozone layer; emitted from products are currently banned from use. These are gases which are released from air conditioners, refrigerators, aerosol sprays, etc. CFC's on being released into the air rises to stratosphere. Here they come in contact with other gases and damage the ozone layer. This allows harmful ultraviolet rays to reach the earth's surface.

Little Help Out For Friend. Daily Mining Activities
 
01:18
Daily Mining Activity. Little Help Out For Friend. Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth usually from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, reef or placer deposits. These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stones and metal has been a human activity since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. Mining operations usually create a negative environmental impact, both during the mining activity and after the mine has closed. Hence, most of the world's nations have passed regulations to decrease the impact. Work safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have significantly improved safety in mines. Levels of metals recycling are generally low. Unless future end-of-life recycling rates are stepped up, some rare metals may become unavailable for use in a variety of consumer products. Due to the low recycling rates, some landfills now contain higher concentrations of metal than mines themselves.

So you might be astounded to learn that carbon can actually be captured and stored using the waste produced in the mining process. In fact, mines could take advantage of this practice, with simple changes in facility design, to become greenhouse gas neutral. Indeed the potential exists for scaling up this carbon capture process to remove billions of tons of CO2 per year—simply by recycling mining waste.   Ross and Christophe are joined by Dr. Greg Dipple, a professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of British Columbia. He is a geologist who studies the processes of and driving forces behind mineral reactions with a focus on fluid-rock interactions. In the last 15 years, Dr. Dipple’s research has focused on carbon sequestration at and near the surface of the Earth.   Dr. Dipple joins Ross and Christophe to explain the process of capturing carbon with mining waste known as tailing. He explains the relative ease with which mines could be redesigned to support the process and the economic and reputational value in removing carbon through mine tailing. Dr. Dipple walks us through his back-of-the-envelope calculations that indicate a very promising $10-20 per ton carbon cost for mine tailing as well as the potential to scale this carbon capture process. We cover several other safety and environmental concerns associated with mining, and Dr. Dipple shares the significance of his partnership with mining companies in deploying his approach in the field. Listen in and learn how Dr. Dipple came to discover the potential for recycling mine tailing to capture carbon.   Key Takeaways [1:12] The process of capturing carbon with mining waste Identify mines hosted in ultramafic rock Reactive waste product can absorb CO2 [2:47] The nature of the mining industry Conservative, long-term investment Slow to adopt new technology, avoid risk [3:32] The value of carbon capture for mining industry Reputational AND financial Stabilizes waste, mitigates dust [5:55] The fundamentals of carbon removal via mine tailing Less than 1% of mined rock = metal/diamond Rest of processed rock is waste known as tailings Tailings much more reactive because finely ground [7:32] How mines could be redesigned to promote carbon capture Maximize potential for reaction between CO2 and tailings material Safer, more energy efficient and less expensive [10:33] The affordability of using tailings for carbon capture No new technology involved Billions of tons of highly reactive rock at surface Could offset all CO2 emissions associated with mining Back of envelope calculations = $10-$20/ton [13:44] Dr. Dipple’s eureka moment re: tailings and carbon capture Working with colleague in Quebec, mid-1990’s Found carbonate minerals in tailings cementing grains of ground-up material together Studied rate of reactions, realized only limited by availability of CO2 Understood could provide CO2 rather than increase reactivity [16:57] The safety concerns associated with toxic waste Increase reaction rates by moving air, make tailings more accessible to gas flow Use onsite power plants as point source of CO2, air capture Could make mine greenhouse gas neutral [20:00] The potential to scale the carbon capture process in mining Large mine produces 20M tons of rock/year Also generates just under 1M tons of CO2/year Capacity of waste to capture CO2 = 10X greater than emissions Greenhouse gas neutral with just 5-10% of filings (easily extracted) Carbonating all current waste = 200M tons/year Opening new mines based on potential = billions of tons of CO2 removed/year [26:54] How CO2 might neutralize asbestos  Idea to make asbestos non-toxic by modifying surface properties through process that also sequesters carbon Could destroy asbestos fibers, but would be expensive ($200/ton) [30:00] The other environmental considerations around mining Water use, impact in sensitive environments (i.e.: Canadian Arctic) [34:29] Dr. Dipple’s take on next steps for his work Change in carbon economy allows to take lab models to field Pick best sites so that large-scale attempts are successful Ability to deal with carbon now seen as huge value prop for mining companies  [37:46] How to measure carbon captured through tailings Rigorous scientific approach uses X-ray diffraction technique, three-isotope system Developing methods to get same numbers in realistic time frame at reasonable cost
