QRC welcomes Senex Decarbonisation Action Plan


The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) has welcomed the released of Senex Energy’s Decarbonisation Action Plan and its company ambition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its operational footprint to net zero by 2040.

QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said the resources sector had a role to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and that work is well underway across the sector to deliver on that objective.

QRC supports the MCA’s statement regarding the industry’s ambition to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

“QRC and its members are committed to working together to achieve energy security while taking proactive steps towards a low-emissions economy,” Mr Macfarlane said.

“Senex’s example today is another case study of the significant work already underway in the resources sector to deliver a strong future for the sector, for the economy and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It also highlights the important role of gas in moving towards a lower-emissions economy.

“An orderly transition to a low-emissions economy will require an integrated set of national policies, which are technology-neutral.

“QRC supports the Paris Agreement and its emissions reductions goals to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.

“Climate change is a critical global challenge, which must be addressed by all parts of society. The resources industry is committed to being part of the global solution.

“In their own operations, QRC members are already working to lower emissions and reduce energy costs by improving energy efficiency, adopting renewable energy, investing in co-generation and implementing demand management.

“The ongoing strength of the resources sector will be essential to realise the benefit of new economy minerals, including their role in new energy sources such as renewables and hydrogen.

About QRC

"The QRC is Queensland’s peak body for coal, metal and gas explorers, producers and suppliers across the resources sector. It contributes one in every five dollars to the state economy, supports one in six Queensland jobs, supports more than 15,000 businesses and contributes to more than 1,200 community organisations – all from 0.1 percent of Queensland’s land mass."

About Senex Energy

"Senex is an established and growing Australian producer of natural gas. We are providing gas for industry that supports local communities, manufacturing, jobs and a cleaner energy future."

New Prevention against Concrete Spalling on Segments in Tunnels

It is generally known that the design of segments tends to become thinner and thinner due to cost, handling and environmental aspects. As a result the contact area between the segment has to be increased as much as possible, which will lead in turn reducing the distance for the gasket to the edge of the segment.

Environmental Social Governance (ESG) – the Future in MiningEnvironmental Social Governance (ESG) – the Future in Mining

A raw materials turnaround in the sense of uniformly higher international standards in terms of environmental protection, social and technological development (Environmental Social Governance) (ESG) will become the future guideline in mining. The most urgent task for the coming years is to implement both issues, raw material security and ESG conformity, at the same time. This requires above all investments in the exploration, production, processing and refining of raw materials. In addition, technical innovations are needed to expand existing mining capacities and make them as ESG-compliant as possible. At bauma 2022, technological solutions and specialist expertise will be presented....
