Your challenges

An industry under economic, social and environmental pressure

Mining resources are depleting while rapid economic growth continues to drive demand for raw mineral materials. The market is characterised by global price fluctuations and increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Sustainable businesses look to reduce carbon emissions and recover and reuse more non-mineral waste. They also seek to optimise productivity, operational efficiency and economic performance while maintaining a positive public image as a responsible participant in the circular economy.
