Advanced technologies, including the Industrial Internet of Things, will be used by a new research consortium being launched today to help boost South Australia’s copper production and develop globally competitive mining technology services sector in the state.
Our researchers have found that introducing concentrating solar thermal (CST) technologies to the Bayer alumina process could enable a 29-45% solar share. This would displace the need for natural gas and decrease operating fuel costs.
Research scientists and industry are joining together to develop and commercialise new tools using cutting-edge digital technologies including machine learning that they say will be a game-changer for mining and exploration.
The University of Adelaide will lead a $14.6 million research consortium to develop advanced technologies to boost South Australia’s copper production and develop a globally competitive mining technology services sector in the state.
The University of Adelaide has today been announced as a founding partner of a national initiative aimed at better positioning entrepreneurs, developers and low carbon technology start-ups to bring their climate solutions to market.
