NIHON KASETSU EUROPE participated together with its distributor AGINTECO in the third edition of the mining congress held in Seville (Spain) between October 15 and 17, 2019
The MMH (Mining and Minerals Hall) is a global meeting where the present and future knowledge of mining come together, and in which international professionals from the mining industry meet. It is an excellent opportunity for networking, shared experience and sharing of the latest advances in mining; all with the common thread of innovation, sustainability and the progress of society.
In Spain, the value of mining production is close to 3,000 million euros and generates around 100,000 direct jobs in about 2,900 mines. Moreover, in Europe, not counting fossil minerals, total production reaches 225 million tons. Mining has, therefore, a very prominent role in our continent.
Mining activity, like most of the activities that man carries out for his subsistence, creates alterations in the natural environment, from the most imperceptible to those that represent clear impacts on the environment in which they develop, such as open pit mining. But inevitably the future of humanity goes linked to the exploitation of mineral resources since we increasingly need more and more varied resources for the manufacture of all kinds of products, and the increase in population accentuates these needs. Those of us who are committed to the environment, work to ensure that mining is carried out in conditions compatible with the environment.
The mining sector is increasingly committed to sustainability and innovation. Very important efforts are being made, which must be supervised by the Public Administrations. Thus, at the present time there are very strict regulations on the impact that a mining operation can produce, which include a regulation of the composition of liquid spills, dust emissions, noise, landscape restoration, etc.
NIHON KASETSU sensors and Monitoring Systems allow simple and reliable control of parameters such as noise, vibration or concentration of dust particles and gases (which directly affect air quality) in open pit mining. They can also manage cameras or weather stations, allowing absolute control over the mine project and being able to implement measures to improve productivity and reduce the environmental impact.
