:: $469,000 Funding Boost Helps CEEC Advance Energy Efficient Mining
CEEC are pleased to announce that they have secured a $469,000, three-year funding agreement with the Queensland Government and METS Ignited (an Australian Government Industry Growth Centre) to roll out our latest offering – the CEEC Advanced Energy Curves Project.
Thanks to this one-off injection of funds, we are able to deliver 10 practical enhancements to our free suite of energy curves – which are hosted on the CEEC website. We have selected these enhancements based on requests from you, our industry colleagues, for this type of data.
As many of you know, the energy curves enable mining companies to benchmark their energy performance against similar operations worldwide and strive for best practice. They also help companies deliver on their sustainable development targets, particularly in relation to energy, water and carbon footprint.
JKMRC's Senior Research Fellow, Grant Ballantyne, who developed the existing tools, will lead the energy curves enhancement work. The new curves to be delivered from this work are: (1) energy cost, (2) ancillary energy, (3) different commodities, (4) embodied energy, (5) comminution circuit type, (6) the calibration of fine grinding, (7) equipment variability, (8) blasting impact, (9) liberation and recovery, and (10) global hardness approach.
In parallel, we are delivering a series of workshops across Australia to assist mining and METS companies to apply the new tools. After a successful first workshop in Melbourne in October last year, we are following up with our second workshop in Brisbane on Monday 27 August. This highly interactive event will be held in the lead-up to AusIMM’s Mill Operators’ Conference, which will run from 29 to 31 August. We will keep you posted.
Our work wouldn’t be possible without your support, and the fantastic support from our valued sponsors.
