MiTRAQ and Natural Resources Canada have unveiled the Mining Energy Benchmarking Platform aimed at transitioning Canada’s mining industry to a low carbon future.
The platform enables analysis of power generation and consumption at mine sites and provides data-driven insight into energy use productivity, according to MiTRAQ.
Developed through the collaboration of MiTRAQ and Natural Resources Canada’s CanmetMINING subsidiary and the Office of Energy Efficiency, the platform provides mining companies with a multi-dimensional understanding of their relative performance within the industry to improve operations and increase their competitive advantage, according to MiTRAQ.
MiTRAQ ensure all data is secure, utilising the latest 2FA (2 Factor Authentication) tokenised data and military grade encryption. At the same time as this, only the mining company representatives can access their own raw data, making all outputs completely anonymous.
Miners with assets in Canada can start using this for free and, in the framework of cooperation, NRCan will subsidise licences so that mining companies can access the platform until June 2021.
