Recycling in Mining: How mining and supply chain industries can work together to tackle waste and sector supply crunches through an ESG framework

  • How can metals and materials recycling help ease the supply gaps for the sector whilst contributing significantly to ESG mandates and decarbonisation goals aligned with the Paris Agreement?
  • What innovative technologies are being applied today by mining companies and their suppliers to help reduce-reuse-recycle?
  • Uncovering how circular economy applications in the mining supply chain are attracting ESG investment, reducing emissions, yielding materials including steel, black carbon, fuel oil/gas and creating cost efficiencies.

Wednesday 11 May 13:15 - 14:00 Room 1

Innovation in Mining Technology

The global pandemic as accelerator.
 

  • How has the global Covid-19 pandemic provided acceleration or challenges for mining technology?
  • Investment: with global economic recovery and the priority of energy transition, will this equate to greater investment in mining technology?

The Pandemic Catalyst: Acceleration of the Digital Mine

  • Digitalization technology advances have already resulted in adoption of mechanisation, automation and data-driven production optimisation.
  • Supermajors such as BHP, Anglo American and Rio Tinto have embraced digitalisation to gain a competitive advantage, mitigate risk and improve performance. They use advanced data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence to reduce costs and increase efficiency in their processes, leading to enhanced metals & minerals recovery and less waste.
  • Now, we operate in a pandemic era and digitalization has become even more vital in maintaining operations – but what have we learnt since 2020 and how will this inform the evolution of the digital mine?
