Meeting the challenge of decarbonising mining
Mining requires a significant amount of energy to break, move, and crush rock as well as to produce the chemicals needed to concentrate minerals and, where necessary, to convert minerals into metal. Often, creating this energy generates significant emissions. In this presentation, David will outline practical steps to reduce the energy required as well as the carbon emissions produced by mines.
