MINING AND CLEAN ENERGYFossil Fuels vs Renewables
Energy costs account for more than 30% of global mining costs, according to a study by Deloitte. Significant efforts have been made to move smelting and refining operations to cleantech, however, a study by Ernst & Young illustrates that mining extraction remains heavily dependent upon Diesel. No solutions are available for the foreseeable future that produce the necessary horsepower and low end torque. However, Verde has proven diesel emission reduction solutions that can dramatically reduce the mining carbon footprint while the search continues for viable zero emission solutions.
MINING AS A GREENTECH OPPORTUNITYDouble The Emissions Of Entire USA
The global mining industry produces twice the amount of green house gases of the entire United States. To put this in perspective, the ten largest open pit mines in the US produce more green house gases than the city of Los Angeles.
Verde has proven fuel technologies that reduce green house gas emissions between 15% and 30%. This means that when the Verde fuel management program is deployed at large mines the scope of green house gas emissions could be equivalent to the emissions from a city the size of Boise.
VERDE EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS PLANActionable, Proven and Audit-able
Not only does Verde offer proven fuel technologies to reduce green house gas emismsions between 15% and 30%. But Verde also has proven information technologies to track and audit both the emissions reductions and the fuel savings. The combination of these technologies allow Verde to offer the 2% Verde Guarantee.
