Environmental impacts associated with iron ore processing plants

Environmental impacts associated with iron ore processing plants

Sep 01, 2016 Regarding the environmental impact on ‘Mineral Extraction’ (0.07%), one would expect to observe a higher impact considering the high amounts of iron ore consumed; but this was not the case. This could indicate that impact on mineral extraction was low in comparison to impacts that are directly associated with the production process of sinter
