The Coalition for Eco Efficient Comminution (CEEC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new podcast, CEECing Change - the Podcast where Industry Collaborates on Eco-efficient Minerals.

CEECing Change is a podcast for people who are interested in sustainability in the mining industry, and each episode contains interviews with some of the people who are spearheading mining’s transition to become more energy efficient.

The first five episodes of the new podcast are released today, featuring industry leaders sharing their insights on important topics in mining such as innovation, best practice, decarbonization, net zero, sustainability, and of course, more eco-efficient comminution.

  • In Episode One, Dean Gehring, Executive Vice President of Newmont, speaks to CEEC CEO Alison Keogh about Newmont’s work and its environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets. He also discusses the company’s culture of collaboration and champions the value of collaborating across industry, especially on shared industry challenges such as safety, energy and water improvement

  • In Episode Two, CEEC Director Simon Hille talks to 2020 CEEC Operations Medal winners Alan Boylston (Metso Outotec), Isaias Arce (Metso Outotec), Kevin Murray (formerly Newmont) and Peter Lind (formerly Newmont) on the occasion of their Medal presentations in North America, as well as Mark Adams (formerly Metso Outotec). They discuss the inspiration for their Medal-winning work, which was a collaboration between Newmont and Metso Outotec, as well as their thoughts on the future of comminution and mineral processing

  • In Episode Three, Alison Keogh interviews Peter Lind of Newmont and Bryan Rairdan of Teck Resources following the presentation of the 2020 CEEC Medal. Some of topics they discuss include decarbonizing energy systems into mine sites, improving water efficiency, and some of the ways that important investor and community ESG and net zero expectations are being considered by technology leaders

  • In Episode Four, Alison Keogh interviews Simon Hille of Eldorado Gold and Mark Adams (formerly Metso Outotec) following the presentation of the 2020 CEEC Medal. The conversation focuses on energy and water efficient minerals, including ways to innovate, important drivers of change, and key factors to help commercialize and scale more eco-efficient mineral processing

  • In Episode Five, CEEC Director Joe Pease interviews Dr Grant Ballantyne of Ausenco after the presentation of his 2020 CEEC Medal for outstanding work. They discuss exciting technologies that are key to reducing mining’s footprint, including how improving processing efficiency could reduce energy, water and tailings by up to 50%.

“For more than 10 years, CEEC has been facilitating alliances to communicate, collaborate and celebrate more eco-efficient approaches to mining, with a particular focus on comminution,” said Ailbhe Goodbody, Communications Lead at CEEC.

“At CEEC we are passionate about leading positive change by discussing and sharing knowledge and innovative approaches across the industry. We are excited to launch CEECing Change, which we hope will bring these important conversations to a wider audience.”

Episodes from the first season of CEECing Change will be released fortnightly. Listen to the podcast on the CEEC website here; it will also shortly be available on all major podcasting platforms.
