Increasing Focus on Implementation of Stringent Governmental Laws to Propel Growth

Several government agencies worldwide have enforced stringent norms and regulations regarding waste disposal and operations for mining. For instance, the federal laws in the U.S. have regulated the mining operations that includes Clean Water Act (CWA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation & Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Toxic Substances Control Acts (TSCA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Clean Air Act (CAA). Violations of these regulations are met with high penalties and therefore compulsory adherence to these regulations is advised by the government. This is anticipated to bode well for the global market growth in the forthcoming years.
