The Age of Aluminum
 
02:18
Available on DVD from the Video Project: http://www.videoproject.com/ageofaluminum.html Aluminum is an integral part of our daily lives, from cooking pans and computers, to soda cans, cosmetics and vaccines. But how much do we know about its impact on human health and the environment? Based on Bert Ehgartner's groundbreaking book Dirty Little Secret -- The Aluminum Files, The Age of Aluminum is the first film to explore the metal's little-known darker side. Through interviews with leading scientists and researchers, along with the personal stories of several individuals, the film reveals how aluminum exposure has triggered serious health consequences and environmental damage. Representatives of the aluminum industry defend its safety record. Long known as a neurotoxin, many scientists suspect aluminum is linked to such modern scourges as breast cancer, Alzheimer's disease, allergies and autism. The documentary looks at how aluminum may be the "universal toxin" underlying the increase in epidemic levels of chronic illness and age-related neurological disorders. Aluminum mining and manufacturing have also created acute environmental problems in several parts of the world. The film documents the devastating effects of aluminum mining in South America, as well as environmental disasters in Hungary and the UK. Ultimately, The Age of Aluminum asks, why isn't more research urgently being conducted on aluminum and human health, and what can we do now to avoid its negative impact on our lives?

ALUMINIUM INDUSTRY - THE FOREST TURNS TO DUST

The bauxite exploitation and its transformation in the industrial minerals alumina and aluminium is an extreme case of what researchers denominate Enclave Economy. A system that concentrates wealth, that guarantees its expansion by installing itself unexpectedly in a region, keeping segregated from the geographic context and forma the rest of the economy that surrounds it. Isolation is what guarantees maximum profit from the natural resources for the progress of business. An invasion that amazonian people are being obliged to undergo in benefit of the development of others. *** The Friends of The Earth Brazil nucleus, in contact with organizations and local movements, set to record these conflicts with ribeirinho communities to evaluate the social and environmental impacts that the aluminium industry provokes since the 1980s in Brazil. Technical visits were organized in at least one place of every stage of the production chain. This report a follows a Field research that reveals cases of threats to the traditional pelope and the workers of the industry, giving voice to the affected.

What Is Recycling - 7 Benefits of Recycling
 
04:49
Originally published as an article at http://www.pacebutler.com/blog/, "What is Recycling" is an essay on recycling and its benefits to individuals, society, and the environment. ------------ What is Recycling - 7 Benefits of Recycling A video presentation by Pacebutler Corporation - http://www.pacebutler.com, America's premier buyer of used cell phones. 110 years after the first recycling facility was established in New York, the United States today has one of the highest recycling rates in the world. US recycling rate from 1960-2008, graph shows the huge surge in popularity of recycling in the US, in the last 50 years. Still, 55 percent of the total solid waste (250 million tons) generated in this country end up in our landfills. What is recycling? Whenever we try and define recycling, we need to think of the three r's of modern waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle. "Reduce" means: Decreasing unnecessary and wasteful purchases, decreasing the volume of waste, and decreasing pollutants. "Reuse" means taking care of our things so that they can last longer, repurposing used items, donating or giving away unwanted stuff, and upcycling waste materials. Buy Recycled: products made from recycled materials to complete the cycle or close the recycling loop. It's not recycling if no one buys or makes use of the end (recycled) product. Recycling is a PROCESS, which includes: the Collection and Segregation of waste materials, the Processing and Remanufacturing of these materials, and the purchase and use of the recycled product. Recycling benefits you, society, and the environment. The 7 Benefits of Recycling are: Financial Benefit, Conservation of Resources, Energy savings, Community Building, Jobs creation, Strong economy, and Environmental Protection. Tangible financial benefits include people gaining income from selling recyclables or unwanted items from home and the savings that cities and counties make when landfill costs are reduced due to recycling. Resources Conservation: Throwing away a single aluminum can, versus recycling it, is like pouring out six ounces of gasoline. Last year, Americans recycled enough aluminum cans to conserve the energy equivalent to more than 15 million barrels of oil. 1 million tons of steel recycled saves 1.3 million tons of iron ore, 718,000 tons of coal, and 62,000 tons of limestone. Recycling Saves Energy: It requires more energy to manufacture a brand new aluminum can than it does to recycle 20 aluminum cans. Recycling Builds Community: People work together, Communicate, Share ideas, and Support each other when they're involved in a worthy common endeavor like recycling. Recycling Creates Jobs: 10,000 tons of waste when incinerated, creates 1 job; when landfilled, creates 6 jobs; when recycled, creates 36 jobs! Recycling helps build a strong Economy in terms of: Lower waste management costs, Cheaper production materials, Energy Savings, and Jobs Creation. Recycling helps protect the Environment: Reduced contamination risk from landfills, Reduced pollution, Reduced environmental impact from mining or extracting fresh raw materials are all direct results of recycling. Clean Air: 82 million tons of waste recycled in 2006 is equivalent to taking 39 million cars off the road for one full year! What is recycling? Recycling is a choice: The plastic bottle, paper scrap, or used cell phone wont recycle itselfIts up to YOU to make that choice to recycle. Recycling is a way of life: Once you make the choice to recycle, And stick to that choice everydayRecycling becomes second nature a way of life. Lets all recycle today Originally published at: http://www.pacebutler.com/blog/what-is-recycling-7-reasons-why-we-should/ Images appearing in this video courtesy of: Frame 2 mred-trucks.blogspot.com Frame 4 recycleraccoon.wordpress.com Frame 5 tts-group.co.uk Frame 6 packagingsource.com Frame 7 climate.nasa.gov Frame 8 uoregon.edu Frame 9 your.kingcounty.gov Frame 10 opsus.com Frame 11 life123.com Frame 13 greengta.ca/ Frame 14 ngoilgasmena.com Frame 15 china-unions.com Frame 17 top-10-list.org Frame 18 zimbio.com Frame 19 emu.edu.tr Frame 20 freedigitalphotos.net Frame 21 therentables.com Frame 22 hackney.gov.uk Frame 23 campusadv.com Frame 24 paulbuckley14059.wordpress.com

Global Aluminium Market – The Metal That Changed The World
 
03:22
Aluminium is the most abundant metal found in the earth’s crust. It is available as primary and secondary aluminium for various applications. Primary aluminium is produced from mining ore while secondary aluminium comes from recycling aluminium scrap. The aluminium industry in a country is greatly influenced by economic development. China is one of the largest producers and consumers of aluminium, accounting for more than 38% of the global market share in 2017. The demand for high-strength aluminium alloys in the automotive and aerospace industries has been increasing over 70 to 80% of aluminium alloy in the production of modern cars and aircraft. However, the adverse effect of bauxite mining on the environment and human health has led to an emphasis on the production of secondary aluminium, especially in the US and some European nations. In recent years, secondary aluminium has gained prominence mainly due to its inexpensive extraction process. Moreover, the use of secondary aluminium results in a reduction of CO2 emissions by up to 92% as compared to primary aluminium production from bauxite. The use of die-cast aluminium for automotive applications presents market players with a lucrative opportunity as it can withstand high temperatures and is corrosion resistant, besides being inexpensive. The presence of abundant bauxite reserves in Asia-Pacific and the increasing demand for lightweight materials in automobile production to increase fuel efficiency is expected to drive the growth of the market in the region. Over the next five years, the aluminium market in Asia-Pacific is expected to register a combined annual growth rate of over 7.0%. According to https://www.marketresearchfuture.com/ the global aluminium market has been segmented based on type, product, application, and region. Asia-Pacific accounted for more than half of the total market share in 2017 with China dominating a regional market with a share of more than 60%. We expect India to be the fastest-growing country-level market at a combined annual growth rate of 8.12% during the forecast period. Considering these factors, the global aluminium market value accounted for USD 151.2 billion in 2017 and is projected to register a combined annual growth rate of 6.7% from 2018 to 2023. Similarly, in terms of companies, Rusal, Rio Tinto, Hongqiao Group, Alcoa, and Aluminum Corporation of China accounted for more than 60% of the market share in 2017. These players are focused on expansions, acquisitions, collaborations, and investments to increase their market presence. In May 2018, Alcoa collaborated with Rio Tinto to develop the world’s first carbon-free aluminium smelting process which eliminates the emission of greenhouse gases. In conclusion, the demand for aluminium is expected to increase significantly over the next decade, especially in the transportation sector.

Covanta Metals Management - Recycling Non-Ferrous Metal from Energy-from-Waste Facilities
 
02:02
Since 2012, Covanta has made significant investments to recycle more metal from the waste stream. Using new technology and installing systems to recycle more ferrous and non-ferrous metals, metal recovery has improved by the equivalent of 16 cars per facility per week for ferrous, and for non-ferrous, the equivalent of 25,000 additional aluminum cans per week. In total, Covanta now recycles approximately 500,000 tons of metal per year, the equivalent of amount of ferrous and non-ferrous metal to build five Golden Gate bridges and manufacture more than two billion aluminum cans. Recycling metal from EfW facilities avoids a tremendous amount of greenhouse gases and recovers valuable natural resources that would have otherwise been lost in landfills. The production and mining of new steel, aluminum, copper, and other metals products is a carbon intensive process that negatively impacts the environment. By recovering and recycling 500,000 tons of metal each year, Covanta’s operations save approximately 1.2 million tons of greenhouse gases, the equivalent of pulling 112,506 cars off the road for a year.

Cuban mining presents environmental challenge
 
02:41
(17 Jun 2016) A mine on Cuba's southeast coast is an engine of revenue for the country's cash-strapped government, but at the same time presents challenges for a country that prides itself on its environmental safeguards. Plumes of smoke rise over the Moa River, which wends its way through the nearby town of the same name, caused by the interaction of sulfuric acid and water. The acid leaches out of storage ponds, which hold run-off from the processing of raw nickel dug from deep pits around the mine. Residents say they have become accustomed to contaminated air and water, both dust from digging the nickel out of the ground, then the gases released when the nickel is processed at the plant. No firm data is available from either mining officials, nor the Cuban government about the extent of the environmental impact on the region. But a study released by Springer Publishing in 2005, called "Enviromental Issues in the Caribbean and Latin America," outlines how tons of chromium, magnesium and aluminum, along with tons of sulfuric acid are dumped every day into the waters and land surrounding the mine. That pollution then ends up in the once pristine waters of Moa Bay, where the study says coral reefs, mangroves and fisheries have been severely impacted. Residents in the nearby town say they stay out of the waters near the mine, which according to the study is so acidic, it scours the hulls of ships clean when they come to load the processed nickel from the plant. Local officials in the region acknowledge the pollution problem and say they are working to minimize the impact from the mine on the environment, updating the processing plant and building infrastructure to contain the toxic by-products of the extraction of nickel from the ground. With the fourth largest reserves of nickel in the world, and as the sixth largest producer of a metal widely used in many industrial and manufacturing applications, Cuba needs the nickel mines for the country's economic growth, and as an important source of foreign revenue. For the people living in the small town of Moa, the benefits of the nickel mines have come at a cost, leaving some residents hoping the government and mining officials will heed their concerns about the environment and do more to mitigate the effects of the mining operations.

Goa's Mines Bleed Its Environment Dry
 
03:03
Unmonitored mining has boomed in Goa in recent years and has had dire effects on the environment. The Goa mining industry is thriving, but its impact on nature and the local population is disastrous. 8% of the state surface is already being mined, mostly to extract iron ore that is exported to China. Over 825 mining sites exist throughout the state, and a large number of projects have been given government's clearance. The very large scale and intensive nature of mining exploitation is a serious challenge to Goa's fragile ecosystem. Indeed, 90 % of Goa's mining leases are within notified wildlife sanctuaries and reserve forests. Large areas of fertile agricultural lands have also been diverted for mining. Huge quantities of mining particles are deposited in rivers, contaminating water sources. Devidas Gaonkar, our Community Correspondent in Goa, has been personally affected by the issue. Belonging to a tribal community, he has witnessed how mining exploitation has encroached on natural resources that are so crucial to sustain life in Goa. His village has been flooded recently because of this excessive mining in the area. In his video, Devidas gives us a powerful and articulate description on how mining is impacting the environment. Deforestation due to mining activity is causing soil erosion and siltation, increasing the risk of flooding and impacting ground water, potentially causing water shortage. With his video, Devidas is adding his voice to the chorus of activists who incessantly warn the government against the risk of excessive mining exploitation. Numerous common people like Devidas have also been courageously protesting mining in the streets and blocking vehicles passing through their villages. Devidas wishes his video to similarly raise awareness, with the hope that the government will soon put a halt to large-scale unmonitored mining, which is proving fatal for Goa's vegetation, water and biodiversity.

By recovering and recycling 500,000 tons of metal each year, Covanta’s operations save approximately 1.2 million tons of greenhouse gases, the equivalent of pulling 112,506 cars off the road for a year.

Water, Land and Natural Resources Minister Xavier Jayakumar said the directive, imposed in January 2016, would be retracted “once all stakeholders enforce the standard operating procedure (SOP) in the mining and export of bauxite from Pahang, to ensure that such activities are carried out in a sustained manner”.. In a statement, he said the ministry had revised the SOP to include stricter conditions to protect the industry as well as the environment.. He said the department of mineral and geoscience would not approve any operational mining schemes for concessionaires until these conditions are met, especially the environmental impact assessment..

These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stones and metal has been a human activity since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. De Re Metallica, Georgius Agricola, 1550, Book I, Para. 1Mining operations usually create a negative environmental impact, both during the mining activity and after the mine has closed. Hence, most of the world's nations have passed regulations to decrease the impact. Work safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have significantly improved safety in mines. Levels of metals recycling are generally low. Unless future end-of-life recycling rates are stepped up, some rare metals may become unavailable for use in a variety of consumer products. Due to the low recycling rates, some landfills now contain higher concentrations of metal than mines themselves.
