In this book, papers pertaining to resource management for sustainable agricultural development are presented in four parts divided into ten chapters. Part I discusses the usage of water and waste management for sustainable agricultural development including aspects like irrigation management to prevent soil and ground water salinization, production of solid fuel from oil palm waste, sustainable ecomaterials and biorefinery from agroindustrial waste, nonpoint pollution from agriculture and livestock activities on surface water....
After the ore is extracted, it is generally transferred by
bridge conveyor, shuttle cars or load-haul-dump units
to a system of conveyors that carry it to underground
storage bins, prior to haulage to the surface through a
shaft by automated skips. On rare occasions shallow
mines may use a decline and conveyor arrangement.
Solution mining is currently used at a number of
operations in North America. The process relies on
the greater solubility at elevated temperatures in brine
of sylvite in comparison to salt (NaCl).
