CO2 emissions in mining

The supply chains of mining companies are scrutinised for emissions and water use. Hybrid vehicles, for example, can help here.

The world's largest copper mine now has a hybrid dump truck in its fleet. Because in the mining industry, emissions and the environment have to be taken into account. At the same time, productivity can be increased by 10 to 20 percent, especially in ageing mines. At least that's what the Japanese equipment manufacturer Komatsu says. This can improve working conditions in the underground and reduce costs, for example for ventilation.

There are still many petrol vehicles on the road. These need platinum and palladium in particular for exhaust gas purification in vehicle catalytic converters. Other applications for these two metals are in the chemical, mineral oil and electronics industries, as well as in the jewellery sector.

One of the largest platinum and palladium producers is Sibanye-Stillwater with properties in South Africa and North America. High-quality gold and uranium projects in South Africa are also part of Sibanye-Stillwater's portfolio.

When it comes to driving with lower emissions, the lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles come into discussion. They need cobalt, among other things. The valuable raw material usually comes from the politically less stable Congo. This is why cobalt companies with projects in other regions are particularly in demand.

These include First Cobalt, a company that has already produced batteryable cobalt sulphate on its Iron Creek Cobalt property in Idaho. It also owns the only approved cobalt refinery in North America.
