Energy efficiency is a business critical issue for Australia's resources community.
Cost control is a key management focus in an era of rocketing costs and project budget overruns.
With recent huge cost pressures for labour, tyres, steel, equipment and many other facets of the mining operation it is essential to ensure you have in place energy saving measures wherever possible to protect your bottom line.
The national summit for energy efficiency in mining and mineral processing will feature loads of practical case studies from across Australia where mines and processing plants have made significant progress in reducing their energy requirements.
Featured speakers include:
-Melanie Slade, Director, Equipment Energy Efficiency Team, Australian Greenhouse Office
-Lindsay Clarke, the Mineral Processing Manager, Xstrata Technology
-Bev Coulter, Consultant Metallurgist, Xstrata Technology
Some of the major topics include:
- A new methodology for more efficient energy distribution between mineral processing and smelting operations
- Maintaining output quality and equipment availability while reducing production costs and increasing energy efficiency of their operations
- Assessing technical energy efficiency compliance
