  1. 1. Landfill Mining : Institutional challenges for the implementation of resource extraction from waste deposits

    Author : Nils Johansson; Joakim Krook; Mats Eklund; Myra Hird; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Landfill mining; recycling; mineral policy; institutions; transitions; mining.;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the thesis is to examine the institutional conditions for the implementation and emergence of landfill mining. The result shows that  current policy makes it difficult for landfill mining operators to find a market outlet for the exhumed material, which means that landfill mining may result in a waste disposal problem.

    Abstract : Event-based data are encountered daily in many disciplines and are used for various purposes. They are collections of ordered sequences of events where each event has a start time and a duration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mining Futures : Predictions and Uncertainty in Swedish Mineral Exploration

    Author : Tobias Olofsson; Patrik Aspers; Gholamreza Azarian; Trine Pallesen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Uncertainty; Risk management; Sociology of the Future; Valuation; Justification; Mineral Exploration; Second Nature; Natural Resources; Sociologi; Sociology;

    Abstract : Any forward-oriented enterprise must somehow manage the challenges posed by uncertainty and with its distant temporal horizons, high stakes, and low probability of success, mineral exploration is a good illustration of this general rule. Based on a combination of interviews, observations, and archival research, this thesis investigates how explorationists use predictions to manage the material complexities and the uncertainties that contribute to determining the future minability of mineral deposits.
