The global financial crisis, water shortages, energy constraints, increased regulatory compliance requirements and changes in community expectations within the mining areas are some of the critical factors that have persuaded the mining industry to re-evaluate the efficiency of traditional dust control methods and explore more advanced solutions.
In general, due to the complexity and scale of mining operations, it is difficult to respond in real-time (at short notice) to emergency dust impacts when they happen. ATMOS Global’s new global dust forecasting center generates, on a daily basis, reliable and timely site specific dust impact forecasts (more than 25,000 site level ‘dust impact forecasts’™ every year ) that play a central role in helping the mining companies across the globe to:
- evaluate future complex air quality risks (a few days in advance) and adjust operational plans to avoid or minimize undesirable dust impacts at environmentally sensitive receptors
- reduce the cost of production (mining) by increasing the efficiency of operational resources
- enhance the effectiveness of their environmentally proactive and sustainability focused operational strategies.
Dr Orestis Valianatos, the Global President and Chief Executive Officer of ATMOS Global™, said that 'At the core of ATMOS Global's new Centre for Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting, Management and Control ™, is the ATMOS Global's DustPack ™ that is used to map, measure and coordinate the use of their dust management resources, reducing water, energy and labor cost associated with the use of water trucks for dust control, they also reduce the overall haul road maintenance costs, downtime on repairs and fuel consumption of haul trucks, as well as increase productivity by extending tyre life-all crucial elements in the efficiency equation for mining operations'.
“According to the level of complexity required by the mine site operations, ATMOS Global's new DustPack ™ is available in three high-tech options: ‘Gold’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Bronze’. DustPack ™ and 'ATMOS Global Air Quality and Climate Change Academy ®' make life better for people on and off the job and sustains the ‘human engine,’” explains Dr Valianatos.
ATMOS Global's DustPack ™ (Gold) package has been used for a mining project nominated as a finalist (jointly with ATMOS Global ™) for one of the most prestigious awards for environmental excellence in Australia.
The DustPack ™ comprises of the following world’s first dust management and dust control services created and offered by ATMOS Global™: ATMOS-5D+ ™, DustAlert + ® ™, DustFinder + ® and RiskBalance+ ™.
ATMOS Global ™ uses green energy to offset the carbon emissions related to its energy consumption.
