Scaling New Energy Minerals: Supply chains & technologies

Wednesday, 9 March

4:30 pm - 5:10 pm (CST) / 09/mar/2022 10:30 pm - 09/mar/2022 11:10 pm

As the world gears up for net-zero emissions, demand for metals and minerals is set to soar. Hence energy transition presents a generational challenge for mining companies. Transforming the global economy will require investments on a level not seen in decades, not only to identify and develop resources, but to do so sustainably and cost effectively. What are the possible technological innovations to support growth, and what is the role of advanced analytics in mining and processing to support efficiency gains on the supply side? Which options (such as hydrogen or electric vehicles, sustainable power generation, water management, etc.) can mining companies use to lower their carbon footprint? What are the expected efficiency gains and use of minerals in energy technologies, including electric vehicles?
