The mining industry consumes 2%-3% of the world’s energy. That’s the same amount of energy used by the entire airline industry. Our sensor-based sorters can reduce that energy consumption by 15%, as well as reduce the amount of water used by three to four cubic meters per ton of ore.
*Total amount of CO2 saved since January 1, 2022 by sorting machines currently installed by TOMRA MINING.
