Carl Weatherell, CEO of the Canada Mining Innovation Council, joins Alex to talk about the enormous value of setting much more aspirational goals to decarbonization (Zero waste, Zero emissions) and applying a radical innovation approach that leverages coopetition, collaboration and co-development across the mining sector.
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 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.
