The Path to Net Zero
Decreasing the Energy and Water Needs of Mineral Resources
CiDRA’s novel technology enables mine operators to have a significant impact on the 1.3% of the global energy that is consumed by grinding circuits, a reduction in grind specific energy (kWh/t metal) of 50% is achievable. Application of CiDRA’s novel technology to coarse particle recovery unlocks the mines ability to increase total water recovery of up to 80%. These step change improvements in energy and water efficiencies supports mines in not only delivering their ESG goals but also enables the industry to deliver the unprecedented supply of minerals that are required for the delivery of low-carbon and renewable energy technologies needed to achieve the goal of ‘net zero’.
