Panel discussion at 4th International Future Mining 2019 conference
Key industry experts will explore the emergence and dominance of the green and digital minerals.
In a recent study, The World Bank used available mineral production data and estimates of future demand of minerals used as raw materials to expand renewable energy. The report concluded that the world mineral production capacity is inadequate to support the expansion of the green electricity generation that is necessary to achieve the Paris Agreement emission goals. It further highlighted that in developing global green policies “…relative little analysis was conducted on the materials implications of a carbon-constraint future”.
Could the same gaps in future mineral supply be applied to digital transformations and the raw materials/minerals that are required to ensure these changes are supported?
To explore these near-future challenges, the 4th International Future Mining conference will feature a panel discussion on ‘The Emergence and Dominance of the Green and Digital Minerals’.
Facilitated by Vanessa Garling of Wood McKenzie, industry experts: Prof. Michael Karmis of Virgina Tech, Adrian Beer of METS Ignited and Michelle Ash of GMG will invite mineral producers and attending experts in the audience to share strategies to tackle these new pressures on extreme production levels on a broad range of commodities.
Future Mining 2019 will be held in Sydney from 19-20 November. More information can be found on the conference website.
