Eco Initiatives at Your Office: Eight Simple Ways to Go Green
 
01:33
There are many benefits to instituting green initiatives at the office. Besides the notion that it is the right thing to do, going green can save the company money and raise its reputation among a new generation of sustainability-conscious customers. A report in 2012, found that hospitals that reduce energy consumption would save $15 billion over ten years. A UCLA-led study from the same year found that companies who voluntarily adopted international green practices have employees who are 16 percent more productive than average. Customers are also more willing to pay more for companies that show themselves to be sustainable according to a 2013 Nielson study. So, the benefits of going green are plenty, but shifting to a green office may seem overwhelming and expensive. This article outlines eight affordable and straightforward ways offices can embrace a culture of sustainability.

ASGM is an important source of income and an opportunity for rural development. The Minamata Convention on Mercury aims to protect human health and the environment from mercury pollution.Under the Convention, many countries are required to develop and implement a National Action Plan, or NAP, to reduce and eventually eliminate the use of mercury in ASGM. The video presents the four worst practices in ASGM. According to the Minamata Convention on Mercury, the countries should aim to eliminate them. The video also presents a set of better practices that can be applied instead in order to reduce the use of mercury in ASGM. Finally it recommends the mercury-free practices and enabling conditions that are necessary to eliminate entirely the use of mercury in the sector.

NEW-MINE  – EU Training Network for Resource Recovery Through Enhanced Landfill Mining
 
02:46
Europe has somewhere between 150,000 and 500,000 landfill sites, with an estimated 90% of them being “non-sanitary” landfills, predating the EU Landfill Directive of 1999. These older landfills tend to be filled with municipal solid waste and often lack any environmental protection technology. In order to avoid future environmental and health problems, many of these landfills will soon require expensive remediation measures. This situation might appear bleak, but it does present us with an exciting opportunity for a combined resource-recovery and remediation strategy, which will drastically reduce future remediation costs, reclaim valuable land, while at the same time unlocking valuable resources. However, the widespread adoption of Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) in the EU, as envisaged by NEW-MINE, urgently requires skilled scientists, engineers, economists and policy makers who can develop cost-effective, environmentally friendly ELFM practices and regulatory frameworks. All this demands a European commitment to concerted, inter- and transdisciplinary research and innovation. This project has received funding from the European Union's EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement No 721185 More Info: http://new-mine.eu/

The Eco Friendly Car Myth
 
04:14
Answering the question of whether there is an environmental advantage to using electric cars. The deal: electric cars do not have any distinct environmental advantage over gasoline-powered cars as although they don't physically emit emissions the energy used to power them is often sourced from fossil fuels, it requires more CO2 to assemble them, and they produce a number of detrimental environmental effects. Electric cars require more C02 to assemble, have rare earth metals such as cobalt and lithium which are obtained through destructive mining practices, and it is also very expensive to dispose of the lithium batteries as they cannot be sent to a landfill as they will release noxious chemicals into the environment. Also, the benefits of zero emissions can be negated if the source of electricity is derived from fossil fuels such as coal power plants. This is increasingly common as only 14 percent of power plants in the United States are sourced from renewable energy sources. However, if you live in an area where energy is sourced exclusively from renewable sources you will have a beneficial environmental impact.

Mine closure
 
00:24
Mineral resources are finite, making the eventual closure of a mining operation inevitable. Leaving a community with a sustainably rehabilitated landscape benefits everyone; the local community, the ecosystem and the reputation of the company. Planning for closure needs to be a collaboration between governments, industry and communities to both understand and address the environmental, social and economic impacts. Responsible closure involves the removal of all infrastructure and facilities, the rehabilitation of surface land, and taking all necessary measures to ensure community livelihoods are sustainable beyond the life of the mine. To mine with principles is to plan, design for, and implement responsible closure strategies. To sustainably manage the natural resources and biodiversity of our planet, enhancing the social wellbeing of local communities, and making financial provision to fulfill those plans. It is what we expect of our members. Our ICMM Integrated Mine Closure – Good Practice Guide provides mining companies with the information needed to effectively integrate closure across the mining life cycle. Visit our dedicated Integrated Mine Closure: Good Practice Guide website to find out more. Or download the guide in full as a PDF.

"Mining Pitch" - First Point Minerals President & CEO, Jim Gilbert...
 
11:07
Re-Discovering Nickel. First Point Minerals is exploring in Canada and internationally for a unique style of nickel mineralization called awaruite. It is neither sulphide nor laterite, but a naturally occurring metallic nickel-iron alloy - in effect, naturally occurring stainless steel. It represents a potential new, long-life, low risk source of nickel mine supply, and a possible game changer for the nickel industry. The Company's flagship Decar Project in central British Columbia has made significant strides towards proof of concept as to the commercial viability of awaruite deposits, under the management of our partner Cliffs Natural Resources, a Fortune 500 company and leading supplier to the steel industry. The positive results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment announced in March 2013 demonstrates the potential economic viability of the Decar Project as a large-scale, standalone open-pit mine and mill using conventional, low-risk magnetic separation and gravity recovery processing methods. With Decar as a model, $3.7 million in the bank, and exploration at Decar being funded by Cliffs, First Point is well positioned to capitalize on its first mover advantage as it continues to explore for additional discoveries in the Yukon Territory, B.C. and Norway. The results of First Point's 2013 exploration program, comprising detailed rock sampling and ground-based magnetic geophysical surveys, have defined a promising drill target at the Mich property in southern Yukon.

Peru:http://solution.mineralsprocessingplant.com/ Gold panning:http://solution.mineralsprocessingplant.com/ The first priority should be to crack down on illegal mining operations, which do not respect any regulations and are not held accountable for pollution or on-site accidents. A second priority should be better education for miners on health hazards and how to minimize environmental damage; often, miners have no idea that they are working with toxic chemicals. For example, one Peruvian miner interviewed by the BBC was under the belief that mercury exposure had cured his heart condition. Such potentially fatal misconceptions could be easily corrected with better education. Miners should also be instructed in proper clean-up and disposal methods of the chemicals they are using. Another way to mitigate environmental damage would be to opt for underground shaft mines, which are by no means eco-friendly, but are distinctly less harmful than stripping the land with open-pit mines. Latin American governments need to step up enforcement of labor and environmental standards and not let tantalizing foreign investment corrupt their integrity or their vision of what is best for their localmunities. Western gold miningpanies must also contend with a new political threat bred closer to home -- environmental activism backed by charities like Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and American Oxfam. Thanks to soaring costs and shrinking reserves, Prudential Equity forecasts that Newmont'sbined output with Barrick Gold, the largest gold mining stock in the world, would be 40 or 50 tonnes less than expected in .
