  1. 1. Some Like It Hot: Pre-heating Prior to Bioreactor Treatment Enhances Nitrogen Removal From Mine Drainage

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Laura Nina Bettoni; [2022]
    Keywords : denitrification; nitrate removal; temperature; woodchip bioreactor; waste rock leachate;

    Abstract : Ammonium-nitrate based explosives (NH4NO3) used within the operations of Kiruna iron ore mine release nitrate (NO3-) into the environment, potentially having adverse effects on local river-systems. One way of reducing NO3- impacts to the environment is through a woodchip denitrifying bioreactor (DBR). READ MORE

  2. 2. Simulation of Leachate Generation from a Waste Rock Dump in Kiruna Using HYDRUS-1D

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Aryani Atmosudirdjo; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydrus-1D; matrix flow; leachate; unsaturated flow; waste rock dump;

    Abstract : The percolation of water through waste rock dumps at mine sites can lead to the production of a leachate with high concentrations of dissolved metals, sulfate and nitrogen compounds. It is important to understand how water flows in waste rock dumps in order to predict the environmental impact of this leachate on recipients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Geochemical processes in mine waste subjected to a changing chemical environment: Fe speciation in leachate water from column experiments

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geovetenskap och miljöteknik

    Author : Paula Lundberg; [2017]
    Keywords : Sulfidic mine waste; Sulfide oxidation; Water quality; Environmental analytical chemistry; Iron redox speciation;

    Abstract : Oxidation of sulfidic mine waste is of significant environmental concern due to the consequent formation of acid rock drainage (ARD), deteriorating the water quality of natural water systems. Iron (Fe) and sulfur (S) are two major redox elements involved in these reactions and typically the major redox-sensitive elements (whose solubility, speciation, and mobility are affected by pH and Eh) in water affected by ARD.

  4. 4. OIL SHALE ASH UTILIZATION IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES AS AN ALTERNATIVE RAW MATERIAL

    University essay from KTH/Industriell ekologi

    Author : Hussain Azeez Mohamed; Leonel Campos; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Oil shale is a fine-grained sedimentary rock with the potential to yield significant amounts of oil and combustible gas when retorted. Oil shale deposits have been found on almost every continent, but only Estonia, who has the 8th largest oil shale deposit in the world has continuously utilized oil shale in large scale operations.
