|Technology||Semi-Mobile Crushing Plant|
|Application||In-Pit Crushing and Conveying|
|Study type||Case study|
The current truck-and-shovel operation currently consumes more than 50 million litres of diesel a year. By adopting a semi-mobile crushing plant, however, truck haulage distances would be significantly reduced. This will result in:
- 93% reduction in annual diesel consumption.
- 73% reduction in Scope 1 CO2e emissions
- 15% reduction in operating costs.
As many mines grapple with ever-deeper pits and lower-grade ores, IPCC therefore offers the opportunity to substantially reduce reliance on diesel-powered haulage. The overall result is a more cost-efficient mining process, while also delivering a substantially improved environmental footprint.
