Outline some of the key health and safety challenges that is faced by a mining company you are familiar with. The industry has experienced both high consequence low frequency events (disasters such as Moura and Gretley) as well as low frequency high events (such as slips, strains and falls) contribute to the industry's high lost time injury rate (LTIR). It has also had its share of occupational diseases. Historically, pneumonocosis (lung disease caused by inhalation of mineral dust), asbestosis...
A fresh study conducted by the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, (2006) advocates that in the EU, electro-scrap is the fastest growing waste stream, growing at 3% - 5% per year, which is three times faster than the average waste. About 90% of this waste is still land filled, incinerated or removed without any pre-treatment. This allows the harmful substances it contains to make their way into soil, air and water, where they create a danger to human health and to the surroundings....
Climate change stands as the critical environmental issue of our era. Since inception of UNFCC in 1992, there is an earnest endeavor towards mitigating the effects of high carbon emission at global level. However, it has led to the widening of the perceptual gap between the national interests of the developed and developing countries regarding the mechanics of tackling this global menace. This issue needs to be perceived in the context of development in third world countries and elevation of...
Over the past 20 years sustainability has become an increasingly popular phrase that has plagued internet news headlines, been the topic of many heart-sinking documentaries, and has been categorized as nonsense by few. Sustainability has become a significant aspect in small and large systems as matter of maintaining and developing the system. In the contemporary modern society that we live in, the search for techniques to reduce and the re-use of resources has become very important, in order...
There have been many scientific attempts to provide a clear definition of consciousness. As a result to find a clear answer the scientific community have dubbed the definition of consciousness as " being both impossible and un-necessary" (Popp,F.A. Belousov, L.V. 2003). This approach has resulted in many scientists adopting an agnostic approach towards consciousness. The definition in natural sciences has attempted to be explained in mathematical terms. Nevertheless, if the...
In recent decades increasing attention has been paid to the environmental problems and protection. The survey conducted by Bureau of Meteorology in Australia states that the mean temperature in the world has increased by 2° Celsius; the warmer temperature increased the sea level and threaten the environment (2010 internet). It is noticed that the environmental problems mainly caused by human activities such as burning fossil fuels, fuel exhaust from cars and changes in land use such as...
Due to the growing energy demands of a fast modernising world, it has become necessary to look for alternate sources of energy that are clean, renewable and available at low cost. The latest developments in the field of microbiology have helped scientists create microbial fuel cells which exploit metabolic reactions of bacteria on waste products to produce electricity and hydrogen gas. Both of these can act as source of energy. Another concern of proper waste management to maintain a clean...
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG): Our country has huge reserves of natural gas. This makes natural gas a very promising source of energy that has the potential of eliminating our dependence on foreign oil. Natural gas is composed of 90-95% of methane (CH4). It also includes small traces of nitrogen, ethane and propane. GNC is natural gas compressed to pressures of at least 3,100 pounds/in2. In 2009, there were about 9 million CNG cars on the road. In the U.S., the Honda Civic GX is one of the very...
1.1 Introduction This technical report will explain how dams are built through the processes of design and construction. It will go into detail about who is involved in these areas and what roles they play. It also explains what methods are used to physically construct an arch dam and an embankment dam. Finally a case study of what was, for a long time, the largest dam in the United States, and now one of the most famous dams in the world will be used as an example: The Hoover dam.1.2 A short...
The accelerated phase of environmental degradation makes it necessary to study and quantify the extent and rate of change so that the areas prone to deforestation can be predicted. Need for real time true information about the state of the environment is imperative for successful management by the planners and decision-makers. The traditional methods of air photo interpretation supplemented by ground surveys are expensive and time-consuming, and historically have not been able to keep pace...
