The Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution (CEEC) has added the newest sponsor to its growing roster: processing technology supplier Metso Outotec.
According to group CEO Alison Keogh, the company’s strong alignment and global reach will be important, particularly as it has been championing sustainability for some time by proactively developing efficient technologies and partnerships.
Metso Outotec President and CEO Pekka Vauramo concurred. “We are committed to limiting global warming to 1.5°C and accelerating our sustainability efforts as the most recent IPCC report makes it clear that the window of opportunity for keeping to 1.5°C is closing quickly. We want to support our customers in reducing their emissions with our sustainable offering that utilizes the most efficient technologies.”
Company grinding business line head Christoph Hoetzel noted that, with comminution being mining’s most energy-intensive sector, “visionary leaders are actively pushing towards what can be done better” and that Metso Outotec is keen to help promote that.
He highlighted the business case for alternative grinding circuits and processing flowsheets, and that the company’s wide range of proven energy efficient solutions allows for a truly holistic approach when considering efficiency, reliability and low operational costs.
“Such holistic approaches with innovative plant design and optimization are vital to reduce mining’s footprint,” he said.
“Research and development (R&D) has a key role in Metso Outotec’s goal towards a more sustainable future. Actions to combat climate change shift demand to smart and sustainable solutions.”
Metso Outotec has previously been a shared winner of the CEEC Medal twice.
CEEC is an international, not-for-profit, registered charity committed to sharing energy-efficient mining and mineral processing solutions. Based in the UK, the group is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2021.
