This paper analysed and summarised the significant research outputs published on the environmental impact assessment of mining and mineral processing industries through life cycle assessment. The paper presents valuable insights in identifying the gaps, where should the focus be in the mining and mineral processing industries for a sustainable.
May 12, 2021 During the sustainability assessment process, the use of datasets is the most critical step. M. P. Environmental impact assessment of European non-ferro mining industries through life-cycle.
Assessment of Environmental Impacts of Limestone Quarrying. 01 11 2017 Presently, there is widespread global interest in the area of mining and its sustainability that focused on the need to shift mining industry to a sustainable framework.
Aug 01, 2018 Social Life Cycle Assessment. The sustainability discipline offers different methodologies for the impact assessment that can be used also in policy evaluation (Sala et al., 2013b, Sala et al., 2013a). In the context of the sustainability research field, Life Cycle Thinking is a well-known concept to help identifying impacts along the supply.
(Environmental management – Life cycle assessment – Principles and framework)  and ISO 14044 (Environmental management – Life cycle assessment – Requirements and guidelines) . EPDs prepared under the Electricity PCR must be based on real-world facilities, for which primary operational data is available.
Life cycle assessment of iron ore mining and processing 623. Based on impact assessment, two types of LCA can be distinguished, problem- oriented. (midpoints) and.

Energy crop as an environmentally sustainable reclamation option for post-mining sites a life cycle assessment of cassava planting in Vietnam Environ Sci Pollut Res Int . 2021 Aug 30. doi 10.1007 s11356-021-16134-0.
Is defined in the goal and scope, so that the whole life cycle of the product can be taken into account (iii) Impact Assessment In the Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA), the product or production system is examined from an environmental perspective using category indicators. The LCIA also provides information for the interpretation phase.
A Life Cycle Assessment Study Of Iron Ore Mining. Iron ore surface mining product system2.1. case study. this paper presents a survey of environmental aspects and impacts related to the iron ore life cycle based on primary data of the process used by samarco minera o in its plant in germano, iron quadranglebrazil.
Mar 01, 2019 SLCA and LCC can be integrated with LCA to form a life cycle sustainability assessment (Finkbeiner et al., 2010). The LCA approach has commonly been used for policymakers and researchers, (Scott Matthews et al., 2014) but has recently gained traction from the mining companies themselves.
Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is a method for assessing the environmental impact of products, processes and services. Usually, LCA is used to evaluate the total environmental burdens and benefits over the entire life cycle for a product from “cradle” o “grave” including material and energy used during extraction and processing of raw materials, manufacturing, transportation,.
Nov 30, 2011 Purpose This study’s aim was to understand the effect of mine characteristics on cradle-to-gate life cycle impacts of surface coal mining in the USA. Five bituminous coal strip mines were used as case studies. The study assessed the life cycle water use, land use, energy use, abiotic resource depletion, and climate change impacts. Methods The study employed the.
Nov 20, 2019 Life Cycle Assessment is a tool to assess the environmental impacts and resources used throughout a product's life cycle, i.e., from raw material acquisition, via production and use phases, to waste management. The methodological development in LCA has been strong, and LCA is broadly applied in practice.
Aug 04, 2011 The aim of this paper is to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) (ISO 14040-44 2006) study of ceramic tiles (single-fired glazed stoneware) in order to identify the stages that produce the greatest impact on the environment and the materials and or processes that make the largest contribution to that impact.The life cycle is considered to be made up of seven.
Social LC Alliance welcomes all actors who want to collaborate in the work for the methodological development and practical application of Social Life Cycle Assessment of products (goods and services). The assessment of products within the context of sustainable development is done by means of the methodology ‘Life Cycle Assessment’ (LCA).
