A global mining giant engaged us to undertake a decarbonisation study to demonstrate reduced operating costs, reduced risk and reduced CO2e impacts of all scenarios.
Our client sought to expand an existing minerals processing plant with the addition of Tertiary Hydrocyclones (THC), to improve fines recovery and high-grade Saleable Ore Product (SOP) production.
BG&E Resources conducted a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that modelled the lifetime emissions associated with the project. We also undertook an energy assessment to determine opportunities for operational energy reduction and Demand Side Management (DSM).
Our Net Zero in Design approach was integrated throughout the project lifecycle to identify decarbonisation opportunities and ensure our client achieved its targets as efficiently as possible.
The Energy and LCA Studies explored the most energy efficient and most significant carbon saving options, enabling our client to address Scope 1 and 2 emissions in its Environmental Social Governance (ESG) agenda.
