Abstract

With the industrial revolution, the establishment of large factories, industrialization and the increase in the human population have increased the human pressure on natural resources significantly. Major mining and processing activities are carried out worldwide in order to meet the increasing raw material need with the accelerated production processes. The effects on the nature of the mining activities carried out in many countries rich in natural resources, especially Turkey unfortunately is often devastating. The short and long-term effects of unconsciously established facilities on the biotic and abiotic environment without taking into account the short and long-term environmental impact assessments, especially in the regions where the old enterprises are located, appear noticeably and dramatically. Unfortunately, sometimes serious irreversible deterioration occurs in habitats and ecosystems in the areas where these facilities are located. There are also many different industrial facilities within the borders of Eskişehir province. Eskişehir Cement factory, which is the subject of this study, was chosen because it has been the subject of complaints by the local people for years and unfortunately, environmentally friendly solutions to solve these complaints were not brought. The negative effects of mining activities on human health and the environment can be minimized by scientific measures. The most important aim of our study is to draw attention to facilities experiencing similar environmental problems to the Eskişehir Cement factory
