Elizabeth Lewis-Gray, Chairman of CEEC (Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution) today launched the 2013 CEEC Medal to recognise and celebrate the contribution of outstanding published papers, articles or case studies profiling beneficial strategies for eco-efficient comminution.

“The CEEC Medal will bring attention to “best-in-class” research in, or documentation of, eco- efficient comminution, an area of mineral processing providing significant opportunities for improved profit and energy savings across the mining industry,” Ms Lewis-Gray said.

Now in its second year, the CEEC Medal helps raise the status of beneficial eco-efficient comminution strategies by:

  1. Recognising and celebrating individuals or teams  making an outstanding contribution in this area
  2. Acknowledging individuals or teams who are helping to build global knowledge of beneficial eco-efficient comminution practices by sharing best practice and leadership, inspiring similar excellence in others
  3. Identifying those building greater awareness and understanding in the wider community by sharing knowledge in eco-efficient comminution and energy savings.

Submissions must be innovative, suitable for technical review and written or published within the past 12 months. Ideally, they must also demonstrate on-site pilot studies and display a breadth and depth of publication of results and findings within the mining sector and research field.

Papers may be presented in any language and will be accepted until 15 March 2013.

The CEEC’s Medal Evaluation Committee will assess applicants’ submissions on originality, applicability, supporting research and documentation, prospective impact, potential energy savings, energy efficiency, earning improvements and presentation style. The Committee’s recommendations will be presented to the CEEC Board for final approval and announcement in June 2013.
