Carbon emissions quantification for innovation and environmental restoration projects at the Cerro Corona mining unit, Gold Fields La Cima S.A. – Perú

The quantification of greenhouse gases (GHG) and carbon footprint mesurement corresponding to the execution of 4 environmental innovation projects was carried out: (a) production of bokashi and biol, (b) Tecnosoles 3 (pilot deposit), (c) topsoil 2 and (d) remediation of soils contaminated with hydrocarbons.

  • The following activities were carried out:
  • Assessment of existing information regarding the quantification and concentrations of carbon forms in the projects;
  • Direct measurements of carbon emissions in the simulations or replications carried out for the production of bokashi
    and biol;
  • Direct measurements of carbon emissions in situ in the assessed project areas.
