MINING

MINING GROUPS, CONTRACTORS

The mining sector is heavily reliant on diesel, with a mix of power generators, heavy plant and machinery and on/off road vehicles in use. Most mines runs on diesel.  

Mining vehicles and machinery have intensive workloads with significant fuel consumptions.

ElimiNOX Eco ™ optimises combustion significantly reducing fuel usage and production of greenhouse gases. Independent tests show reductions in Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5) by over 50% and 60% respectively, greatly improving air quality and damage to health, particularly importantly in underground and enclosed mining situations.

In common with all businesses:

  • increasing fuel costs are a problem. It is hard to pass the cost on especially on current contracts.
  • there is pressure to reduce emissions, an issue especially relevant to larger or publicly quoted companies with ESR targets and institutional shareholders.

 

A particular issue is work being stopped because of downtime with the generators, engine breakdowns in the excavators and dump trucks, or stoppages with a compressor.  Reliability is important.  Downtime has a significant.  These problems are often due to issues caused by diesel such as the build up of deposits and diesel bug.  ElimiNOX Eco ™ will improve reliability, as well as reducing maintenance costs, by resolving these issues.

All plant consuming road (white) diesel, red diesel or HVO can be treated with ElimiNOX Eco ™ resulting in lower emissions and improving fuel efficiency.

Cost Savings

You can expect a reduction in diesel fuel consumption of between 5% and 10%, plus lower maintenance costs. Less downtime will reduce your costs of performing your contract adding to your bottom line.

Emissions

ElimiNOX Eco ™ reduces the production of harmful, environmentally damaging greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2/NOx (up to 30%), whilst also reducing deadly Particulate Matter (PMs), including soot and smoke (up to 60+% reduction for PM2.5 and 50+%

Larger businesses, and the major mining groups fall into that category, are often subject to ESR requirements. Use of ElimiNOX Eco ™ will improve their ESR performance.

Incorporation of ElimiNOX Eco ™ ought to become an important part of a mine’s decarbonisation responsibilities.

ElimiNOX Eco ™ has been rigorously and successfully tested by world renown laboratories including Socotec Laboratories. The test results have been declared as ‘game changing’ for the diesel engine, environmental pollution and the health problems associated with diesel engine pollutants.

Moreover, Bureau Veritas have certified that diesel fuel conditioned with ElimiNox Eco™  not only retains compliance with EN590 but also benefits from an increase of over 30% improvement in Lubricity.

Improvement in Reliability of Diesel generators, excavators, dump trucks, compressors and other plant

The improvements in efficiency including the substantial increase in lubricity (30%) and reductions in deposits due to lower particulate matter emissions, result in better performance and critically less downtime. Less downtime, whether of generators, vehicles or plant means lower costs.

Storage Tanks

ElimiNOX Eco ™ has the added benefit of reducing maintenance and improving the life span of fuel storage tanks.  It will also keep fuel in storage tanks clean, scavenging excess water from fuel tanks maintaining fuel integrity and stability contributing to reduced filter blocking. . It ensures diesel bug is both eliminated and prevented.
