30 Years of METS Sector Transformation: Mineral Processing
Over the last 30 years there have been key challenges within minerals processing associated with cost, energy, water supplies and deposit complexity. This has caused the industry to focus on more innovative technologies as well as integrated digital automation solutions. New innovations which increase production rates, minimise energy consumption and lower environmental impact will all assist in reducing energy and improving efficiency of the extractive process. The future will be for mining companies and engineering houses to make the mining enterprise more sustainable.
