Energy Use Patterns in Metallurgical and Nonmetallic Mineral Processing (Phase 5-Energy Data and Flowsheets, Intermediate-Priority Commodities).


PB246357

Publication Date 1975
Page Count 248
Abstract This report covers 27 intermediate-priority commodities. These commodities and their appropriate primary products were originally selected for this category either because of an expected fairly high total annual energy requirement to produce or because of the fairly large tonnage produced each year. All of these commodities are important basic industrial materials and, therefore, this detailed energy appraisal should be of particular value in assessing the national pattern of energy consumption. This study differs from the usual energy analysis because it includes estimated energy values for mining and beneficiation, consumable raw materials, transportation, and fuels and electrical energy. The magnitude of imports of ores and concentrates is given. The level of such imports indicates the degree of U.S. dependence on foreign sources for basic raw materials. Imports of partially or completely processed primary product are shown. Total energy required for 1973 U.S. consumption of primary products is given.
