Canada: CEEC Water Curves Workshop helps industry lead important collaboration

Close to 40 leaders from mining, METS, research and support services came together in Vancouver this month in a groundbreaking workshop to steer the development of a global Water Curves tool.

Jointly organised by Canada Mining and Innovation Council (CMIC) and CEEC, with facilitation by KPMG, the project definition workshop at Teck Resources’ Vancouver headquarters on 27 September explored many important questions, such as: what the industry requires from Water Curves, what metrics are required to benchmark water use, how information could be gathered and assessed, and how the project could be funded.

The Water Curves approach builds on the success of CEEC’s trusted free Energy Curves tool, which has been used since 2015 to assess and map operational energy efficiency improvements and options.

Ideally timed to follow the SAG Conference (see coverage of this in our next issue), workshop speakers included CMIC CEO Carl Weatherell; CEEC CEO Alison Keogh; CEEC Director Simon Hille, Newmont Goldcorp Group Executive Global Projects, and Peter Radziszewski, Metso VP Product RTD (Mining and Aggregates, Minerals Consumables).

Further information about the Water Curves Project Workshop will be featured in the October issue of CEEC News.
