In its environmental impact statementThe experiment replicated on a small scale the disturbance that would be caused by commercially mining manganese nodules by plowMiller ka thompson kf johnston p and santillo d 2018 an overview of seabed mining including the current state of development environmental impacts and knowledge.
A relatively abundant metal manganese is widely distributed throughout Earths crust In addition to terrestrial sources manganese is present in nodules that are distributed widely over the seafloor Highergrade nodules contain 10 to 20 percent manganese along with significant amounts of cobalt copper and nickel.
The carbon content of the alloy is significantly lowered by the presence of silicon Further removal of carbon can occur on cooling owing to the formation of silicon carbide which floats to the top of the metal and is collected in the slag A silicomanganese of even lower carbon content less than 01 percent can be obtained by resmelting silicomanganese with more coke and quartz This product is used as a reducing agent in the manufacture of lowcarbon ferromanganese.
To obtain a product of low carbon and silicon content manganese ore lime flux and coal are fused in a furnace forming a melt rich in MnO This is then contacted with silicomanganese or lowcarbon silicomanganese The silicon in these alloys reduces the MnO to manganese metal and is itself oxidized into the slag The carbon content of the particular silicomanganese reducing agent carries over to the final ferromanganese productabout 1 percent when silicomanganese is used and 01 percent with lowcarbon silicomanganese.
Another method of producing mediumcarbon silicomanganese involves refining molten highcarbon ferromanganese by blowing it with oxygen This oxidizes the carbon until its content in the metal is less than 15 percent.
Lithium mining found to be responsible for water air and soil pollution has highlighted numerous socioeconomic and environmental impacts of mining battery raw materials Manganese has.

The negative impacts of mining are both direct and indirect Direct effects occur within the immediate connes of the mining enterprise Duran180 et al 2013 Indirect effects are a consequence of external infrastructure pollution synergistic developments and population migration In terms of direct negative impacts.
Impacts of manganese mining activity on the environment interactions among soil plants and arbuscular mycorrhiza.
Project is designed to meet all Czech Republic and European Union environmental health and safety standards.
Project poised to become Europes only primary producer of highpurity manganese products by reprocessing waste serving rapidly emerging European EV battery market.
EMN President amp CEO Marco Romero statedThis is a major milestone for Euro Manganese The EIA Notification is the culmination of years of work on the ground including extensive environmental baseline and impact studies and a multi milliondollar investment to plan and design a worldclass highpurity manganese producer in Europe.
With this filing we will also present our Project development plan which benefitted from extensive consultation with local communities and stakeholders from whom we received invaluable input The plan features the application of strict and very high environmental health safety and social standards The studies indicate that on balance this project is positive for the environment local residents and the Czech Republic Environmental protection and stewardship are front and centre in this Project which is located on a site significantly impacted by historical mining activity.
EMN and its whollyowned Czech subsidiary Mangan Chvaletice sro Mangan engaged the services of Bilfinger Tebodin Czech Republic sro Bilfinger Tebodin to prepare the EIA Notification following completion of extensive environmental baseline studies and all necessary environmental impact studies prepared by various expert consultants The proposed project is based on the development plan and process flowsheet presented in the Preliminary Economic Assessment issued in March 2019 Pavel Celunda Bilfinger Tebodins Managing Director stated.
The researchers explain how deepseabed mining destroys the seafloor and impacts the entire water column above extraction activities Mining pursuits for copper cobalt zinc and manganese among other metals often purposely underestimate these adverse impacts in the name of economic gain.
