Increasing the world's population to 9 billion by 2050 will lead to an increase in the need for raw materials that support basic human activities, as well as all developments in new technologies, mobility, energy. If current trends continue, projections indicate that to meet global needs by 2050, we will have to extract more metals from the subsoil than mankind has extracted since the inception. It is against this backdrop of strong demand for metals that energy and the transition to decarbonized energy production arise. The stakes associated with energy and mineral raw materials are indissociable because metals are necessary to build the infrastructures of production of energy, its storage and its distribution, but also because the energy is necessary to produce the raw materials. The offshoring of production weighs on the adaptive capacities of Western non-producing countries, which are currently confronted with the economic, political and technological emergence of producer countries such as China. Industries in developed non-producing countries are thus placed in a situation of great dependence on imports of fossil energy, but also mineral resources. In this highly competitive context, the stakes in raw materials and energy are considerable. Mineral Resources and Energy addresses these topics from the point-of-view of needs, notably to ensure the energy transition and primary production, recycling, technological innovation, economic and social issues. A chapter is devoted to modeling in order to understand and integrate these couplings in a global model. Increasing the world's population to 9 billion by 2050 will lead to an increase in the need for raw materials that support basic human activities. In this highly competitive context, the stakes in raw materials and energy are considerable. This book addresses these needs in order to ensure energy transition, primary production, recycling and technological innovation. Approaches the issues of commodities and energy in terms of needs, technological innovation and economic and social issues Emphasizes the couplings between these different aspects Helps readers understand and integrate these couplings through global modeling

Sustainable practices within the mining and energy sectors are assuming greater significance due to uncertainty and change within the global economy and safety, security, and health concerns. This book examines sustainability issues facing the mining and energy sectors by addressing six major themes: Mining and Mineral Processing; Metallurgy and Recycling; Environment; Energy; Socioeconomic and Regulatory; and Sustainable Materials and Fleets. Emphasizing an integrated transdisciplinary approach, it deliberates on optimizing mining productivity and energy efficiency and discusses integrated waste management practices.

With the inclusion of access to energy in the sustainable development goals, the role of energy to human existence was finally recognized. Yet, in Africa, this achievement is far from realized. Omorogbe and Ordor bring together experts in their fields to ask what is stalling progress, examining problems from institutions catering to vested interests at the continent's expense, to a need to develop vigorous financial and fiscal frameworks. The ramifications and complications of energy law are labyrinthine: this volume discusses

What are the impacts of population growth? Can our planet support the demands of the ten billion people anticipated to be the world's population by the middle of this century? While it is common to hear about the problems of overpopulation, might there be unexplored benefits of increasing numbers of people in the world? How can we both consider and harness the potential benefits brought by a healthier, wealthier and larger population? May more people mean more scientists to discover

The world is currently undergoing an historic energy transition, driven by increasingly stringent decarbonisation policies and rapid advances in low-carbon technologies. The large-scale shift to low-carbon energy is disrupting the global energy system, impacting whole economies, and changing the political dynamics within and between countries. This open access book, written by leading energy scholars, examines the economic and geopolitical implications of the global energy transition, from both regional and thematic perspectives. The first part of the book addresses the geopolitical

The constant increase in the consumption of mineral resources, as well as the growing awareness of their exploitation, is causing deep concern within the scientific community. This concern is justified by the fact that the energy transition will increase the pressure on these resources, as renewable energies require an increased and more diversified quantity of mineral materials. This book presents an overview of the exploitation of these mineral resources, where the natural, regulatory and environmental constraints interfere with economic, financial

The Earth has limited material and energy resources. Further development of the humanity will require going beyond our planet for mining and use of extraterrestrial mineral resources and search of power sources. The exploitation of the natural resources of the Moon is a first natural step on this direction. Lunar materials may contribute to the betterment of conditions of people on Earth but they also may be used to establish permanent settlements on the Moon. This will allow developing new
