QLD BRANCH VIRTUAL TECHNICAL MEETING
Wednesday, 21 April, 2021
The Queensland Branch of CASANZ would like to invite members and guests to a virtual technical presentation focused on:
Reducing the emissions intensity of mining equipment
The event is intended for members to hear from a special guest presenter, Graham Box of Mine Energy Solutions Pty Ltd (MES), on the application of dual fuel engines in mobile mining equipment to reduce air quality and greenhouse gas emissions.
MES (an incorporated joint venture between Sime Darby Berhad, a Malaysian based multi-national corporation and Intelligas, a Queensland based gas technology company) has developed a world first innovation, whereby high density compressed natural gas (HDCNG®) is used as a dual fuel supply solution for mobile mining equipment. The technology delivers substantial reductions in air and greenhouse gas emissions and uses a cheaper, locally sourced energy source, such as coal seam methane gas from the mine. MES source the feedstock gas if required, provide onsite gas processing, storage, compression, transportation, and proprietary fast fill refuelling facilities. MES also retro-fit engines for dual fuel and install on-board patented dual fuel storage for mobile heavy mining equipment.
MES are able to achieve substitution rates of gas over diesel in excess of 80% depending on the relative engine architecture, ambient conditions, truck duty cycle and gas quality. This technology provides a reduction in diesel consumption, which in turn would significantly reduce air quality impacts from diesel emissions associated with mobile mining equipment. The capture of fugitive greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
MES has been on a development journey to bring the technology to a safe and efficient mine site ready energy alternative for mine truck use since 2014. The technology is being commercialised in 2021 with projects being executed in both in Australia and the United States.
Please join us online for an in-depth presentation and discussion on reducing emissions from mobile mining equipment.
