DustPack™ is used by mine sites to map, measure and coordinate the use of their dust management resources to reduce water use, energy and labor costs as well as haul-road maintenance costs while increasing productivity using our world's first approach
Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
ATMOS Global ™ (ATMOS Global Pty Ltd – Elite Atmospheric Air Quality Modelling & Forecasting and Climate Change Research Consultants ™) launched a new services line-up structure, intuitively named the DustPack ™ featured in the Mining Engineering Magazine – SME, Society for Mining Metallurgy and Exploration - USA, December 2012 edition, 'New Products' feature, page 82) - please click here for an excerpt of the article titled 'ATMOS Global introduces DustPack for dust management’.
DustPack ™ delivers more than 25,000 site level ‘dust impact forecasts’™ every year (achieved 24/7 through ATMOS Global’s Centre for Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting, Management and Control ™) and supports ATMOS Global’s new VerifiedDust ™ global initiative, a ‘journey of 1,000 mines, one mine at a time’™ in the pursuit and discovery of environmental excellence, inspired by their 2020 vision. The DustPack ™ : Evidence-Based Dust Management Service Structure ™ comprises of the following world’s first dust management and dust control services created and offered by ATMOS Global™: ATMOS-5D+ ™, DustAlert+ ™, DustFinder+ ™ and RiskBalance+ ™.
There has been a broad recognition of the importance of access to practical evidence-based knowledge and information that enhance the ability of mining companies to formulate new or improve existing dust management plans for their growth-oriented global or regional operations.
Dr Orestis Valianatos, the Global President and Chief Executive Officer of ATMOS Global, said that “For example, in addition to the evident benefits that mine sites enjoy by using the DustPack ™ to map, measure and coordinate the use of their dust management resources, reducing water, energy and labour cost associated with the use of water trucks for dust control, they also reduce the overall haul road maintenance costs, downtime on repairs and fuel consumption of haul trucks, as well as increase productivity by extending tyre life-all crucial elements in the efficiency equation for mining operations. We did not invent forecasting, we invented successful ‘dust impact forecasting’™”.
“According to the level of complexity required by the mine site operations, ATMOS Global's new DustPack ™ is available in three high-tech options: ‘Gold’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Bronze’. DustPack ™ and our 'Air Quality and Climate Change Academy' ™ make life better for people on and off the job and sustains the ‘human engine’”, explains Dr Valianatos.
ATMOS Global's DustPack ™ (Gold) package has been used for 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 ™ uses green energy from Green Power accredited sources to offset by 100% the carbon emissions related to its energy consumption.
