CO2 emission levels of copper and zinc mines from which Japanese smelters import ore concentrates into Japan, were estimated by using a database called MLED. Eleven copper mines selected from data availability of mine site covered 84% of the total imported concentrates. Adding inventories of sea transportation and smelting processes to mine development process, total CO2 emission level for copper and zinc ingots produced in Japan were calculated. The results show that the emission share of… CONTINUE READING
