Can a ‘mining code’ make deep seabed extraction

11/03/2019  Mining and metals are essential to achieving the UN’s 2030 sustainable development goals. As the world’s population continues to grow, the demand for critical metals will continue to increase. The European commission estimates, for example, that demand for copper – one of the key minerals of interest for deep seabed mining – could rise by up to 341% by 2050 compared to 2010.

Regulation is key to the sustainable development of deep ...

The development of the regime under which mining of the deep seabed could take place occurs in a transparent, public-forum of consensus-building by the international community under international law. It is done so within a framework of reference of environmental protection, sustainability, impact assessment and oversight.

What Role for Ocean-Based Renewable Energy and Deep-Seabed ...

the deep seabed. Building a sustainable global energy system is intimately linked to both scaling up renewable energy and finding a way to source and use rare minerals in a more sustainable way. Questions remain as to whether deep-seabed mining should be heralded as the key to a transition to a sustainable energy sector, based on whether it

No Deep Seabed Mining

Extraction of deep seabed minerals – deep seabed mining – would substantially increase the human footprint on these important ecosystems. Next to direct destruction of ecosystems and loss of unique biodiversity and genetic resources when minerals are mined, damage and disturbance is also expected to arise from light, noise and sediment pollution. Since deep seabed mining would affect areas at a

The Code will require States or mining companies planning to undertake activities in the international seabed area to carry out prior environmental impact assessments, abide by stringent environmental criteria and account for continuing compliance through oversight by independent entities. Unlike comparable activities within national jurisdiction (i.e., up to a country’s 200 nautical mile on the

Background to deep seabed mining. Sustainable development, the growth of urban infrastructure and clean energy transition are combining to put enormous pressure on metal supplies. Over the next 30 years the global population is set to expand by two billion people. That’s double the current populations of North, Central and South America combined. By 2050, 66 percent of us will live in cities ...

JMSE Free Full-Text Deep Seabed Mining: A Note on

Sustainable mining and the use of minerals are vital in meeting various industrial demands. The rapidly increasing global populations and socio-economic development in the Global South have resulted in rising demand for natural resources. There are many plans for harvesting natural resources from the ocean floor, especially rare metals and minerals. However, if proper care is not taken, there ...

Seabed Mining (SBM) should be distinguish from Deep Sea Mining (DSM) that occurs at a depth of 200 meters and greater. DSM is an experimental industrial field which involves extracting mineral deposits from the continental shelf and Area under the high seas. There are interests both for and against seabed mining, however, the science around the environmental impact of DSM is incomplete and ...

But the disturbance to the seabed isn’t all that this type of mining can do. These huge ships are also causing increased noise and light pollution. In the next few years, Debmarine plans to launch the largest ever custom-built mining vessel ...

The future of deep seabed mining - chinadialogue ocean

25/02/2019  Some deep seabed mining has already taken place within countries’ waters: Japan in 2017, and in Papua New Guinea where the controversial Solwara 1 mining project has ground to a halt. But this year will see a critical global debate on how to manage the resources that lie in “the area” – international waters of more than 200 metres deep that cover nearly two-thirds of the earth.
