Use Incentives to Accelerate the adoption of Mining Clean Technologies

Question:Which market-based approaches encourage adoption of clean technologies?
on 09/23/2016







Most clean-tech technologies that will have a huge impact on mining are in the developmental phases and require investments to accelerate their adoption by mining companies.

  1. A market-based approach to the adoption of mining innovation requires some regulatory reform – current regulations on create a barrier to innovation is they are not update to take into consideration the impact of new innovations.
  2. Create incentives for development and adoption of new clean technologies within the companies that manage mine tailings and waste for mining companies. E.g: methods to restore land to its natural use with no further future remediation requirements.
  3. Government investment in the supply and service companies that are developing clean technologies for application to the mining industry.
