  1. 1. Biogeochemical Processes in Denitrifying Woodchip Bioreactors and their Application in the Mining Industry

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Albin Nordström; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; water treatment; mine drainage; nitrate; nitrous oxide; DNRA; fermentation; syntrophy; temperature; kväverening; gruvvatten; nitrat; lustgas; DNRA; fermentation; syntrofi; temperatur; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : This thesis evaluates passive denitrifying woodchip bioreactors (DWBs) for the removal of nitrate (NO3-) in neutral pH mine drainage, where water is passed through a carbon-rich porous matrix (e.g. woodchips) for the reduction of NO3- to nitrogen gas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental aspects of coal mine drainage: a regional study of Moatize in Mozambique

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Estevao Pondja; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-05-08]

    Abstract : Mozambique is one of the largest coal producers in Africa. Extraction of the coal is carried out in the Moatize district of the Tete province in the center of the country. A surface mining technique is used to extract the coal below ground level. READ MORE

  3. 3. Environmental impact of peat mining : Development of storm water treatment methods

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Bjørn Kløve; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]

    Abstract : Drainage of peatlands increases the transport of suspended solids (SS) and the leaching of nutrients to downstream receiving waters. Increased settling of peat and eutrophication of lakes has been noted in many studies downstream from peat mines. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wetlands as a means to reduce the environmental impact of mine drainage waters

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Åsa Sjöblom; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lakvatten; våtmarker; vattenrening; miljö; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Water in nature and society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : In many mining regions of the world, pollution of surface water and groundwater by drainage water originating from mines aiming waste poses either a serious threat to the environment, or a severe environmental problem. During the last two and a half decades, treatment of mine drainage water in constructed and natural wetlands has emerged as an alternative to more conventional methods to handle the problem.

    Abstract : Mining has been and still is an important industry in Sweden, it has strongly contributed to the standard of living we have today. Extraction of ore began in the 12th century, but did not come about frequently until the 16th century, which is often seen as the starting age for ore processing and metal extraction. READ MORE
