MissionZero is the FLSmidth sustainability programme to enable customers to move towards zero water waste, zero energy waste and zero emissions in mining by 2030.
Economic growth, urbanisation and a move towards energy efficiency and green technology are fuelling demand for new green, urban infrastructure, technology and modern conveniences. Demand for minerals is expected to double by 2050. Meeting these demands requires minerals, which places mining industry at the centre of green-energy solutions.
The difficulty in delivering the minerals demanded by society while decreasing the environmental footprint is being compounded by declining ore grades. This has direct implications for the amounts of water and energy needed for production, increasing the environmental footprint of the mine.
We aim to consolidate our position as the go-to-partner for sustainable productivity, and we are perfectly positioned to meet customers challenges, such as increasing costs and risk, tighter regulations and changing societal expectations.
We are dedicated to the development of digital and innovative solutions tied to sustainable productivity. Last year, FLSmidth launched the MissionZero Mine to demonstrate the positive impact of implementing sustainable solutions across the entire mining flowsheet. The idea was to show current and future solutions that can be gamechangers in key areas, such as water use and recovery, energy efficiency, decarbonisation, lifecycle enhancement and digital optimisation.
