The strategic importance of corporate water footprinting and management

Outline

This webinar, produced by Sustainable Business and edie.net, will examine how businesses can create product transparency, formulate specific and measurable targets to tackle water footprint reduction, and improvement performance that can turn water risk into a competitive advantage.

Considering and mitigating the water footprint of your business can reduce physical, reputational, regulatory and financial risks. And those companies that proactively respond to the challenge of global freshwater scarcity can turn that risk into an opportunity.

Cranfield University's reader in water management, Tim Hess will be joined by Sophie Flak, VP sustainable development at Accor and Inder Poonaji, head of safety, health and environment sustainability at Nestle to explore a number of themes, including:

- Using your water footprint activity to drive your overall sustainability strategy
- What can we learn from carbon footprinting activity
- Developing effective water use minimisation strategies,
- Managing water as a valuable asset and mitigating the effects of water shortages worldwide
- The need for global standards
- Taking it to the next level: supply-chain water footprinting

  • Optimizing froth area of the flotation cell Optimizing froth area of the flotation cell Jason Heath, Technology Leader Flotation, Outotec Recorded: Apr 29 2016 50 mins
    The topic in focus will be ‘flotation cell froth crowding and launder design,’ and its’ influence on overall performance of a flotation cell. Companies often overlook the importance of crowding and launder design; however, both play a critical role in good metallurgical performance of an individual cell, and therefore the overall performance of the plant. Flotation cells with different duties and in different positions will require different cone and launder configurations; Outotec will explore these options with participants and demonstrate how to identify the correct arrangement in a plant. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
  • Identificación y eliminación de cuellos de botella en plantas de flotación Identificación y eliminación de cuellos de botella en plantas de flotación Hernan Elgueta, Sales Engineer Senior, Outotec Recorded: Apr 15 2016 44 mins
    El tema a presentar será ‘Cómo identificar mejorías en plantas de flotación’, el cual es un tema de énfasis que Outotec pone en práctica alrededor del mundo.

    En algunos casos, los diseños de ingeniería y configuraciones de proceso originales pueden disminuir el rendimiento de los procesos en la actualidad; esto debido a cambios en el cuerpo del mineral y cambios a la estrategia operativa del proceso. Estos aspectos serán discutidos con la audiencia, a la vez que se expondrán las áreas clave para obtener mejorías. Para esto se examinará el rol de los componentes clave en los equipos de flotación y los participantes obtendrán una mayor comprensión sobre la influencia que cada uno de estos componentes tiene en el rendimiento en general. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
  • Finding and eliminating bottlenecks in flotation plants Finding and eliminating bottlenecks in flotation plants Robert Coleman, Account Director, Outotec Recorded: Apr 8 2016 58 mins
    The topic in focus will be ‘where to identify improvement areas within existing flotation plants,’ something which Outotec is putting into practice worldwide. Original engineering and plant layouts may actually be lowering current performance levels due to changes in the mineral and variations in operating philosophy; these will be discussed with the audience and key areas for potential improvements will be outlined. The role of each of the major components of the flotation machine will be looked at and participants will gain a greater understanding of the influence that each part has on overall performance. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
  • Вопросы сгущения хвостов обогащения Вопросы сгущения хвостов обогащения Елена Нечаева, руководитель направления обезвоживания Outotec Eurasia Recorded: Mar 17 2016 38 mins
    В сегодняшней сложной экономической ситуации перед предприятиями горной промышленности особо остро встали вопросы сокращения производственных затрат и повышения эффективности производства. Сгущение хвостов обогащения - одна из технологий, предлагаемых компанией Outotec, которая позволяет успешно справиться с подобными задачами.
    Как показывает опыт Outotec, внедрение технологии сгущения хвостов позволяет нашим заказчикам существенно снизить себестоимость производства за счет сокращения затрат на складирование хвостов и получения оборотной воды для нужд обогатительных фабрик. Кроме того, снижается негативное влияние на окружающую среду.
    Технология сгущения хвостов успешно используется в мире уже более 20 лет, но для России и стран СНГ это достаточно новая технология, которая стала развиваться лишь в последние годы, тем не менее Outotec уже имеет ряд успешных примеров внедрения данной технологии на предприятиях СНГ.
    Приглашаем Вас на бесплатный вебинар, на котором Вы сможете более подробно узнать о вопросах сгущения хвостов и проектах по сгущению хвостов, реализованных компанией Outotec.
    Темы вебинара:
    1) Актуальность сгущения хвостов.
    2) Вопросы, возникающие при сгущении и укладке сгущенных хвостов.
    3) Примеры работающих узлов сгущения хвостов, выполненных с участием компании Оутотек.
  • Holistic solutions for mine tailings and water Holistic solutions for mine tailings and water Jason Palmer, Commercial Product Manager, Dewatering Recorded: Dec 22 2015 34 mins
    Almost all mines have waste streams from overburden through tailings to excess water and as the mine life develops these streams require storage or treatment. While some may have acid generation potential or heavy metals contamination much of the waste is inert and can be safely stored in stacks or dams that are stabilized and revegetated at the end of the mine life.

    Advances in technology are enabling changes to the way dams are managed, increasing the solid content of the tailings stream decreases the size of the storage, increases the water recovery, reducing risk and enabling simpler closure. Advances in filtration have made the stacking of tailings an alternative in arid regions or areas where a tailings dam may not be acceptable.

    The technical feasible solution with the lowest life of mine cost is typically influenced by the source material availability, geographic conditions, production rate and local legislations. Analyzing the available technologies to arrive at the best holistic solution requires a deep understanding of the available technologies combining process, geotechnical and strategic planning.

    This webinar introduces the technologies and services that Outotec has developed to respond to the evolving industry needs for safe and effective management of tailings and mine water.

  • Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Malavika Tohani, Frost & Sullivan; Shannon Fraser, U.S. Commercial Service, Paddy Young, European Utility Week Recorded: Sep 3 2015 55 mins
    Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.
