Join the Upcoming Webinar: Mining Electrification - New Directions

Thursday 26 August 2021 - Why is even seasonal storage a new requirement? How is it that storage by compressed air, gravity and other non-battery options closely leverage mine assets for greater safety and viability? Why does next generation solar fit so well in mines? and more.

Electrification Will Take Mines Beyond Mining

Electrification Will Take Mines Beyond Mining

Imagine mines with so much electricity production and storage that they do far more downstream processing. As reserves deplete, many will even transition to being zero-emission power stations and electricity storage for local communities and industry or even national grids. The cost of making-good becomes income from reinvention. That is the untold story of mining electrification, beyond the vital safety, greening, and cost reduction of electrics.

Can Direct Air Capture Really Help in the Fight Against Climate Change

Carbon capture technology may be essential in helping the world in the fight against climate change, however, capturing CO2 from point sources not be enough to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. A potential solution is direct air capture (DAC) technology. Does DAC justify the excitement or is it doomed to fail?
