Energy Use Patterns in Metallurgical and Nonmetallic Mineral Processing (Phase 5--Energy Data and Flowsheets, Intermediate- priority Commodities).
NTIS: PB 246 357 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :242 pages
This report covers 27 intermediate-priority commodities selected because of an expected fairly high total annual energy requirement to produce or because of the fairly large tonnage produced each year. These commodities are important basic industrial materials, and therefore, this energy appraisal should be of value in assessing the national pattern of energy consumption. The commodities included in this report are argon, asbestos, barium, boron, bromine, chromium, clays, diatomite, feldspar, fluorine, gypsum, magnesium, manganese, mica, molybdenum, nickel, oxygen, perlite, potassium, pumice, sand and gravel, silicon, sodium, titanium, uranium, vanadium, and talc, soapstone, and pyrophyllite. The energy analysis includes estimated energy values for mining and beneficiating, consumable raw materials, transportation, and fuels and electrical energy.
