Mining Sector Roundtable

Mining Sector Roundtable
12 August 2011

As  a key tool for the mining, mineral processing and metal making industries towards a carbon constrained future, life cycle assessment (LCA) assists these critical industries understand and develop their position on carbon. An LCA can also assist in reducing environmental impacts as these become increasingly important major drivers for business success.

Studies carried out by CSIRO and others in Australia for mining, mineral processing and metal making industries seek to identify and quantify risk and opportunities for reducing impacts in:
•           greenhouse gas emissions,
•           water consumption,
•           resource depletion, and
•           waste generation,
as well as improvements in efficiency during mining, mineral processing and metal production.

Some Mining Sector Roundtable presentations and the program for the day can be downloaded (above).
