Optimization of the Carbon Footprint of the Mining Fleets through Fuel Consumption Mapping
Ash Agarwal, CEO, Symboticware
On most open-pit mine sites, 50 to 80% of CO2 emissions are associated with the diesel engines of haul trucks. The presentation will focus on practical opportunities to map the fuel consumption on the mine site across different phases of the haul truck use (haulage, loading, and others) using the network of the internet of things devices and sensors, as well as the results of a study of the impact of digitization tools, including telemetry, idling alerting and overspeeding prevention systems, on the diesel fuel consumption and associated CO2 emissions.
