SWEMP 2009
Canada, 16-19 November 2009


This Symposium on Environmental Issues and Waste Management in Energy and Mineral Production (SWEMP) is the 11th in a series of biannual symposia on the subject matter. The basic aim of this series of symposia is to contribute to the development of methods and technologies for assessing, minimizing and preventing environmental problems connected with mineral and energy production.

This symposium has come to be recognized as a leader in promoting international technology transfer. A wide range of high quality papers from North and South America, Europe, Australia, Africa, and Asia have been attracted. Major topics to be covered are: Environmental Impacts of Coal-Fired Power Projects, Mining and Reclamation/Rehabilitation in Context of Landscape Ecology, Post-Mining Reclamation/Rehabilitation and Principles of Landscape Architecture, Water Management in Post-Mining Sites, Holistic Approaches to Reclamation/Rehabilitation, Spontaneous Succession as a Tool of Restoration, Social Aspects of Rehabilitation, Sustainable Development for Mineral and Energy Industries-national perspectives, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): Energy and Mineral Production Operations, Remediation of Contaminated Soil and Groundwater, Health Hazard and Safety Issues in Small-Scale Mining, Environmental Issues in Surface and Underground Mining of Metalliferous, Coal, Uranium, Industrial Minerals, Occupational Health and Safety and Rehabilitation of Mineworkers, Control of Effluents from Mineral Processing, Metallurgical and Chemical Plants, Emerging Technologies for Environmental Protection, Mine Site Closure and Rehabilitation, Computer Modeling, Optimization and Applications, Geographical Information Systems(GIS) and Remote Sensing in Reclamation/Rehabilitation, Reliability of Waste Containment Structures, Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology Tailings Treatment, Recycle and Disposal.

SWEMP 2009 is supported by a number of organizations. To be noted are: The Department of Mining, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Universite Laval, Canada; National Technical University of Athens, Atilim University, Turkey; University of Cagliari, Italy; Centre for Environmental Engineering Research and Education (CEERE), University of Calgary, Canada; Tallinn University of Technology, Department of Mining, Estonia; Faculty of Agriculture University of South Bohemia, Czech Republic; Institute of Land Reclamation and Ecological Restoration, China University of Mining and Technology, Beijing, China; The International Journal of Mining, Reclamation and Environment; Columbia University, USA; Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA; Curtin University of Technology, Australia; Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London; Lulea University of Technology-CENTEK, Sweden; Faculty of Geoengineering, Mining and Geology, Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland; Czech University of Life Sciences, Czech Republic; Hokkaido University, Mineral Resources Engineering Department, Japan; Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), Finland, Mining Engineering Department, Istanbul University, (ISEG) International Society of Environmental Geotechnology.

This symposium is designed to provide a forum for the presentation, discussion, and debate of state-of-the-art and emerging technology in the field of environmental management. Authors from over 20 countries with backgrounds in science, technology, and management representing government, industry and academia concerned with energy and mineral production have contributed to these proceedings. The contents of this volume of proceedings will be of interest to engineers, scientists, consultants and government personnel who are responsible for dealing with the environmental issues of the minerals and energy industry. Papers on this CD are available in PDF format and are saved under the authors’ last names.
