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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Government investment in the supply and service companies that are developing clean technologies for application to the mining industry.
