As the world’s largest consumer of coal and leading CO2 emitter, China’s role in the international effort to combat climate change can hardly be overstated. The challenges China faces to control emission and pollution levels while meeting the country’s increasing energy demand are enormous. Over the years, China has made considerable efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and control pollution levels, and notable progress has been made through the implementation of ambitious programmes aimed at improving energy efficiency across a number of industrial sectors and a rapid scale up of renewable energy. This study reviews China’s policy and regulatory initiatives, in particular those aimed at improving energy efficiency and reducing emissions, HELE (high efficiency low emissions) upgrades, diversify the energy mix, as well as the progress to date in reaching a series of ambitious goals. China’s rapid expansion of non-fossil energy which affects the structural change of the power sector and coal use in electricity generation, and therefore, CO2 emissions from coal-fired power generation are also discussed.
China has provided strong financing and policy support for the R&D of HELE technologies. China now possesses a range of HELE technologies that are applicable to new and/or retrofitting of the existing coal-fired power plants and they are described in the webinar. Finally, the peak of coal consumption and CO2 emissions from power generation from coal, in light of China’s economic and policy trends affecting the structure of the economy and the coal consumption, are assessed.

Global energy demand is rising, while water is becoming a scarcer commodity in many parts of the world due to over-exploitation, droughts, heat waves, and other factors. Meeting the growing demand will place
increasing stress on limited fresh water resources. The power generation industry is typically the largest industrial user of fresh water in a country. Consequently, the vulnerability of the power generation
industry to constraints in water availability can be expected to increase. Hence non-fresh water sources will become increasingly important. This report examines the availability and use of potential non-fresh water sources in China, India, South Africa and the USA. These are the four top thermal coal consuming countries in the world. The alternative sources are municipal waste water, brackish and sea water, mine
water, produced water from oil and gas wells (including coalbed methane wells), and water extracted from deep saline aquifers during CO2 storage. In certain cases, and with suitable design of the on-site
water treatment plant, a coal-fired power plant could become a supplier of both energy and fresh water, instead of a water consumer.
The topic in focus will be ‘flotation modernizations and upgrades,’ and their vital importance in improving plants and processes operating under the current pressure of the mineral processing industry. With over 100 years of development, advances in flotation technology and controls have been substantial. New technology can be used to replace or improve existing equipment, leading to greater levels of efficiency, usability, reliability, stability and flexibility. Changes in ore bodies mean that subsequent changes in equipment are also required – Outotec will explore these changes and latest developments with participants, introducing some simple tools that the audience can use to make preliminary assessments. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.

In 2015, less than a tenth of enterprise IT stakeholders had confidence in Corporate Sustainability to affect IT efficiency and costs. One short year later, 2016 is a vastly different matter and the data suggests that the time of corporate sustainability in IT is here now: 70% of enterprise IT organizations actively participate in corporate sustainability efforts.
Senior executives are increasingly tasking all departments to work together to reduce resource consumption in the name of sustainability. The stakes are undeniably high, as sustainability efforts can impact important financial factors such as stock price and capitalization.
In this webinar, Uptime Institute COO, Julian Kudritzki will present new survey data, illustrating the sweeping changes facing enterprise IT and sustainability efforts, including:
-A snapshot of the current state of relations between enterprise IT and Sustainability counterparts.
-How will Corporate Sustainability shape technology adoption trends as it begins to exercise its influence in IT decision making?

Water is an essential component in mineral processing. It is a valuable resource and medium for transport, as well as a potential source of risk to the environment and operation. Real-time information about water quality and quantity is a valuable resource for any mine site seeking to optimize process operations and reduce environmental concerns. This information is often saved to various different data management systems, making it difficult to monitor, report and analyze.
In this webinar we describe the benefits of collecting and combining all water related data from the mine area and mineral processing plant. Outotec presents a solution for water quality and quantity management linking on-line measurements to its advanced dynamic modeling. Combining real-time data from site with dynamic modeling provides mining companies with the opportunity to evaluate different operating scenarios and make informed decisions for selecting the best candidate for an efficient process. The solution also gives a holistic view to all water related information at the mine site, providing the site with the capability to react to changes that could influence productivity or otherwise jeopardize operations. With automatic data transfer, the solution minimizes manual reporting work and provides the necessary key performance indicators (KPI) to all stakeholders.
Countries are setting ever higher goals for producing power from clean, renewable energies and some are actively turning their backs on fossil fuels. However, many of these regions are discovering the real challenges of trying to produce baseload power for public consumption from renewable sources which are, at best, intermittent, and, at worse, unpredictable and unreliable. Until large scale energy storage is available and affordable, baseload power from coal, gas, and/or nuclear will remain necessary in many regions for several more years. Obviously this baseload power is required when renewable output is low (when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow). However, it is also still required to make up the balance of power in a diverse energy mix. Under the new energy policy regimes in many regions, renewable sources have priority into the grid and sit in the guaranteed dispatch mix in the base region which coal used to occupy. Coal has now been nudged into the dispatchable area of the mix, being asked to ramp up or down or even to idle or run beyond normal capacity, sometimes at short notice, to produce the balance of power required to maintain grid output. And whilst coal plants can run relatively flexibly, this does not come without cost. Most older coal-fired units were designed to run at steady output. Asking these plants to cycle and ramp puts stresses on the plant which can result in added cost, less efficient production, increased wear and tear and, in some cases, damage causing enforced outages for repair and/or upgrade. This webinar, looks at the stresses placed on coal-fired plants as they are asked to help levelise and counterbalance the intermittency of renewable sources, concentrating on the risks and costs. Case studies and examples of issues being encountered in the USA, the UK and Germany are included.
Often the mechanical and maintenance of a flotation operation is overlooked when focusing on plant metallurgical performance, causing loss of “easy recovery percentages”. For this reason, the topic in focus will be ‘flotation maintenance practices.’ Common mechanical issues together with spare and wear parts have a big impact on the efficiency of a flotation plant. These points will be discussed with the participants, as well as an overview of some of critical areas that directly affect the overall performance of the plant. Well-defined regular maintenance can limit downtime, increase availability, and lead to better overall performance of the individual components of the flotation cell. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
