Nordic Mining has decided to use electrical dryers instead of gas fueled dryers in the mineral processing of rutile and garnet at Engebø. This will reduce the CO2 emissions with over 80%.
Nordic Mining has in the process to update the definitive feasibility study (DFS) for Engebø been able to commercialize a concept for use of electrical dryers for drying of minerals in the production process. The concept uses proven technology that has been qualified for increased production volumes. Use of electrical dryers will reduce the CO2 emissions from the project and in effect make the Engebø process plant completely free of CO2 emissions.
“The change from natural gas to clean and renewable hydroelectrical power for drying of the rutile and garnet products is the most important measure we can do to minimize CO2 emissions from the Engebø project“, says Project Manager Kenneth Nakken Angedal.
