Best Of MetalMiner 2011 – All Things Green


Green technology approaches are just as important to the metals industry as they are to environmental groups — if we could all “go green” with our processes and products, we would today. The reality is, it will take a long time to get all sectors of all industries on the bandwagon; not to mention that a lot of regulations and approaches are not practical — or even feasible — yet.

That being said, our coverage pays attention to the green news in the metals world, and gives it due exposure. Here are the most-read green-related MetalMiner posts of 2011:

1. US Steelmaking Only a Small Part of Global Steel CO2 Emissions – Part One

2. Illegal Gold Mining Activities in Peru and Colombia Spur Mercury Contamination

3. OTEC’s Zero-Carbon Emissions Too Good to Be True? Maybe not.
