Life Cycle Assessment and Its Implementation for Sustainable Material Handling in Surface Mining



Life cycle assessment of two different renewable energy systems for a selected region: Bozcaada island
Şentürk, Ayşe Eylül; Oğuz, Elif (2020-01-01)
Energy production without destroying the environment has been one of the most crucial issues for the people living in today'sworld. In order to analyse whole environmental impacts of energy production process, life cycle assessment (LCA) is widely used. In this study, two distinct renewable energy systems are assessed. First, a land-based wind farm which has been operating in Bozcaada Island since 2000 compared with a proposed solar photovoltaic power plant in terms of Energy Pay-Back Time (EPBT) periods an...

Life cycle assessment of off-highway trucks and belt conveyors for sustainable mining
Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa; Demirel, Nuray; Department of Mining Engineering (2011)
In recent years increasing growth rate of all industrial fields generated an emerging energy demand and consequent environmental problems worldwide. Defining environmental profiles of products and systems using environmental tools, such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), is a critical issue for sustainable mining. In order to tackle the increasing environmental challenges and air emissions induced by surface coal mining, alternative material handling options are needed to be evaluated. This research study aims...
Life cycle assessment of wind power for electricity generation in Pakistan
Khalid, Sajida.; Sarı, Ramazan; Department of Earth System Science (2019)
Pakistan is a developing country and energy crisis has always emerged as the key hindrance in economic development. Besides the increasing demand and supply gap, it is alarming fact that the current energy mix is mainly dependent on fossil fuels which results in environmental and energy security issues. As part of efforts for transition towards clean and renewable technologies for electricity generation, the assessments carried out by Pakistan Meteorological Department and Ministry of Energy in collaboratio...
Life Cycle Assessment with BIM Towards Sustainable Energy Policy-Making: The Case of Urban Transformation in Istanbul
Yayla, Alperen; Kayalıca, Mehmet Özgür (2020-11-25)
Buildings are responsible for almost forty percent of global energy. Due to their high consumption of energy, buildings are on the front line of sustainability researches. In Turkey, six million out of twenty-two million buildings need to be demolished and rebuilt to meet seismic standards. These buildings are also far below the standards in terms of energy efficiency. Therefore, urban transformation can be thought of as a great opportunity for energy efficiency. This study investigates four things: (...
