Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
ATMOS Global (ATMOS Australia Pty Ltd – Elite Atmospheric Air Quality Modelling & Forecasting and Climate Change Research Consultants™) launches its first-of-its-kind new global initiative VerifiedDust™ Evidence-based Dust Management and Dust Control Verification Program™, a global event, a ‘journey of 1000 mines’ inspired by ATMOS Global™'s 2020 vision born from the desire to make a difference.
As dust management and dust control activities become more complex in the fast paced technological environment of the mining industry, it is important for mine site operators to have access to practical evidence-based knowledge and information that enhance their ability to select 'strategically important clusters of dust management and dust control methods™' for their active or proposed mining operations.
ATMOS Global™ 's VerifiedDust ™ program is essential to the success of local-level dust management plans by providing stakeholders with an insightful understanding of:
- leading-edge dust management and dust control technologies that can be used for mine sites located anywhere in the world
- the broader operational framework in which these dust management and dust control technologies are used.
VerifiedDust™ is an innovative platform for engaging mine site operators with a systematic dust management and dust control framework that will support them in selecting the most suitable and sustainable approaches for their mining operations to:
- ensure compliance with the relevant legislation
- improve company’s image
- increase profitability.
After undertaking a methodical and thorough verification process, on an annual basis, ATMOS Global™ awards the VerifiedDust™ accolade (valid for 12 months) to mine sites that are using cutting-edge dust management technologies and demonstrate an ongoing control of their dust emissions.
Dr Orestis Valianatos, the Global President and Chief Executive Officer of ATMOS Global, said that “ATMOS Global™ 's VerifiedDust™ program uses rating grids to provide mining operators with a practical and complete set of defined choices, specifications and actions that will bring immediate environmental benefits”.
ATMOS Global™ 's VerifiedDust ™ new global ‘journey of environmental excellence’ started last year in Western Australia with a mining project nominated as a finalist (jointly with ATMOS Global ™) for one of the most prestigious awards for environmental excellence in Australia.
ATMOS Global™'s VerifiedDust ™ new global ‘journey of environmental excellence’ expands the portfolio of its elite research consulting services™ and complex multi-component systems that deliver more than 25,000 site level ‘dust impact forecasts™’ every year (achieved 24/7 through ATMOS Global’s Center for Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting, Management and Control™) that will be showcased at MINExpo 2012: ATMOS-5D+™, DustAlert+ ™ and DustFinder+™.
