Preliminary review of mine air pollution in Zambia

This review has shown that mine air pollution has been a thorny issue since the beginning of commercial copper mining in Zambia, in the 1900s. The advent of the Smoke Damage Act of the 1935, which provided indemnity against any liability resulting from Smelter emissions, explains the current state of environmental devastation.

What drives GHG emissions from copper production

Despite the political turbulence, most scientists agree that climate change is occurring, and mining companies are recognizing a need to measure and reduce GHG emissions from their operational activities. Im sharing analysis about GHG emissions associated with production of my favourite metal, copper, and looking at ways these might be reduced.

Copper Environmental Profile Copper Alliance

copper mining: surface and underground mining. Due to copper being spread in relatively low concentrations over large areas, surface, or openpit mining, is the predominant mining method for copper in the world. After mining, copper is produced by one of two process routes: pyrometallurgical or hydrometallurgical.

copper mining air emissions coal russian

24112016  The table above shows a worst case scenario, a typical low grade copper mine using coal fired electricity would produce in the order of 3 5 t CO2e/t Cu produced. A large open pit copper mine may use in the order of 200,000 L/d of diesel, with an emissions factor of about 2.7 kg CO2 e/L, resulting in 200,000 t CO2 e/y of emissions.
