Rethinking decarbonisation in mining through innovation

Carl Weatherell joins Alex to talk about the value of setting aspirational goals to decarbonisation and applying a radical innovation approach

Plenty of big ideas here for other energy-intensive sectors to learn from, as well as specifics on mining innovation opportunities from microwave technology to core mining platforms.

We talk about prototypes of innovative mining technologies that can cut typical process energy consumption by as much as 42%, how to achieve zero tailings and 0% emissions – plus we explore how design-led thinking leads to wholly new answers to major process issues and climate threats.

 Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
