As demand increases – led by the shift to renewables technology and green energy – minerals-processing plants need to maximise recovery and operating efficiencies. Producing the highest-grade product and getting the most out of finite resources means having very finely tuned processes and systems in place.
As peak mining bodies and investors put more emphasis on ESG, efficient processes, combined with emissions and water use modelling are vital to ensure mining sites can track, manage and report on their ESG goals.
The process design and simulation team at Metallurgical Systems is called Elemental Engineering. First established in 2006 as a specialist process simulation, metallurgy and design engineering consultancy, this highly experienced team provides a range of services to help minerals-processing plants optimise their operations.
Our team are experts in all types of processing and analysis for minerals including developing and refining processes that enable cost-effective extraction of critical minerals and battery metals such as uranium, nickel, cobalt, copper, lithium, graphite, aluminium, manganese, rare earths and platinum group metals, gold and silver.
In 2010, the Elemental Engineering team expanded into developing software and technology for the mining and minerals industry and Metallurgical Systems was established.
