Mining and Sustainable Power: a horizon of opportunities

12 Mar 2021

You have already seen, heard, or used at home sustainable power sources, including solar or wind power. Without available ores to research and manufacture equipment, we cannot benefit from them. Now, you will also learn how mining is deeply significant to enable a better life to everyone and also protect the planet against hazards like pollution.

The power sector is a technological industry, which matrix has evolved quickly, to carry on with power generation sustainable alternatives implementation.

Within the context of industry power use in general, and by mining in particular, there are opportunities to use potential relevant power consumption efficiency and greenhouse gas emission reduction related to power source replacement, existing facility retrofit, process innovations and products with lower power content and potentially enhanced by industrial operational digitalization insertion.
