AUSTRALIA – French electric utility company ENGIE is joining Mining3, a global mining research organization focused on fast tracking solutions to major industry issues, such as decarbonization.
ENGIE is joining the research group to co-create hydrogen solutions and help the mining sector reach carbon neutrality in the coming decades. The global energy company is aiming to accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral and sustainable world, through renewable energy, renewable hydrogen and other environmentally-friendly solutions.
“Mining3 has already identified a number of projects that align with both ENGIE’s strategy as well as the mining industry’s current and future needs,” Paul Lever, Mining3 CEO, said in a release. “Our priorities at Mining3 are focused on developing next generation mining systems and technologies, and we see sustainability drivers and particularly renewables as key components for this strategy in the coming years. We plan to be on the forefront of this research, and I believe we can achieve this with ENGIE as a partner on renewable hydrogen.”
“ENGIE is delighted to join Mining3 and its members to co-develop renewable hydrogen-based solutions for the mining industry,” added Michele Azalbert, CEO of ENGIE’s hydrogen business unit. “These solutions will help the industry players reach their carbon-neutrality goals, as well as help reduce emissions for countries where mining is a key industry, such as Australia, Brazil, Chile, Peru and South Africa, where we are developing hydrogen projects.”
Mining3, with its industry members, is dedicated to developing and delivering transformational technology to improve the productivity, sustainability, and safety of the mining industry.
