Energy effiency and emissions

Energy effiency and emissions
There is enormous demand for environmental efficiency in our industry. By default, the mining industry is energy- and water-intensive. We provide our customers with durable, energy-efficient equipment and services for a long life-cycle.

Solutions for energy and emissions effiency

We have a good offering for energy- and emission-efficient solutions for comminution, beneficiation and refining. Grinding is one of the most energy-intensive stages of minerals processing; better solutions are needed to overcome the challenges of degrading ore and the growing demand for minerals. For aggregate production, we also have energy-efficient crushers and a dual-power offering.

We reduce global CO2 emissions through our customers’ industrial processes. The high energy efficiency of our technologies used by our customers has a significant impact in reducing CO2 emissions. In mineral processing, we offer energy-efficient product options in material transport, size reduction, mineral separation and dewatering.

As a part of our handprint we measure the amount of CO2 emissions avoided by using Metso Outotec technologies compared to industry baselines or alternative technology. Emissions of seventeen of our technologies are measured annually. In 2020, Metso Outotec’s CO2 handprint was 8.2 million tonnes less of CO2 equivalents in the seventeen technology areas (2019: 7.2 million tonnes of CO2), which represent an increase of 14%.
