The material extracted from a mining site, is a mixture of components without value, but rich in minerals, which through different separation processes recover the valuable content. The mining sector makes use of high technology, which requires a strict design and action plan in order to achieve efficiency and profitability, without leaving aside the care of the environment.
Sustainable technologies are defined as the set of technical know-how that allow to create goods and services that are adapted to the care of the environment, through the reduction of emissions of pollutants, less use of water for production processes, energy saving, The use of increasingly safe practices for workers, among others.
Mining companies are faced with the challenge of continually improving their production processes and at the same time making their mines deposits sustainable over time. These new technologies, which adapt to demanding quality controls, can improve safety, working conditions, responsible water management, dust reduction, energy saving, noise reduction, etc.
