What Is the “Green” Mining, and How Does It Work?
The cryptocurrency industry and its environmental impact are both growing at rapid rates. At the same time, the Earth’s ecosystem is currently in a state of unprecedented warming due to a massive amount of CO2 emissions.
The global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose by 6% in 2021 to 36.3 billion tonnes, their highest ever level, according to a new IEA analysis released recently.
The environmental impact of mining activities is a key issue concerning the industry. Thus, reducing this harmful side effect becomes a key component of low-carbon economic development.
Green mining is an operating system composed of mining and environmental governance subsystems.
Two major ways to implement green mining reform are governmental regulation and innovative technologies. These methods pave the way for significantly improved mining efficiency and reduced environmental impacts.
We are developing new waste management technologies to examine mine waste as a potential source of valuable materials.
In 3WM’s dedication to employing environmentally friendly technologies, one outstanding example is a planned WTB plant.
The 3WM WTB plant is a clean and autonomous plant setting out to transform all types of waste (plastics, organic, medical) into bioenergy (electricity, biogas, heat, biofuel) with very high levels of efficiency.
Our proprietary technologies (LogMed®, LogOrg®, Logoil® etc.) are revolutionary: evaluating 100% of household waste and plastic.
Plants are autonomous in energy and don’t pollute. Thus, we transform waste into different types of energy and valuable materials.
This technology will find reasonable success in setting out to reduce mining’s environmental impacts.
