CEEC Advanced Energy Curves - Project Summary

The Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution (CEEC) International Ltd is enabling mining operations to benchmark their comminution energy performance against similar operations around the world using their globally recognised Energy Curves program.

METS Ignited has entered a project funding agreement with CEEC to share successful implementation case studies and operational data to help mining and METS companies identify opportunities to reduce energy intensity and increase productivity in their comminution process.

CEEC Advanced Energy Curves Project

The CEEC Advanced Energy Curves Project sets out to advance mineral processing energy efficiency initiatives by extending the CEEC Energy Curve Program into METS companies and helping them improve their capability to supply energy reduction goods and services to mining operations in Australia and internationally as exports.

Project Funding

The total funding agreement with CEEC is $469,083.85, with $200,057.85 from Queensland Government for advancements to the energy curves, with $94,513 from METS Ignited to roll out the workshops around Australia and for other communication initiatives, $40,000 from Queensland Government for the Queensland-based workshops, and a $134,513 co-contribution from the mining industry via CEEC.
