Joe Pease said “Alison is a highly regarded mining professional with 25 years of experience in the mining and METS sector. She has a sound understanding of the sector, having worked in operations, management, exploration and consulting with leading mining and consulting firms across a range of commodities and operations worldwide.”

CEEC CEO Alison Keogh aims to re-invigorate and grow the global reach and impact of CEEC’s activities.

CEEC Sponsors and Participants Leading the Energy Conversation

In its first five years, CEEC has established itself as a trusted, impartial facilitator of all companies interested in promoting practical energy efficiency and productivity improvements in mineral processing operations, with a focus on the typically most energy-hungry activities of crushing and grinding (comminution). CEEC is a unique organisation and is an impartial facilitator of improvement, innovation and collaboration, strongly supported by CEEC's sponsors who are mining and METS companies. CEEC CEO Alison Keogh states "My aim is to consolidate and build on CEEC's first five years to extend the reach and impact of more productive and more energy-efficient comminution and mining approaches.” 

Alison Keogh said “Without the vital support of our valued sponsors and their vision, CEEC’s work would not be possible. Our sponsors, advocates and patrons help support and drive strong inroads to improvement and innovation in energy use in mining.

CEEC Sponsors are continuing to help the global mining industry by supporting and leading the vision for improvement and innovation. Without our sponsor support, CEEC's activities would not be possible. Because of our sponsors, leaders and innovators in our sponsoring companies, together with CEEC advocates and patrons, CEEC readers and followers, and of course CEEC Energy Curves Program participants are all able to play a part. They are all active in the energy conversation and proactively engaged in, seeking and leading improvement and innovation opportunities.
