Consulting for Regulators
SIX-S provides guidance to authorities and regulators on legislation and permissions. Taking into account the specific characteristics of mineral processing and sensor-based ore sorting technology allows us to offer guidance on appropriate sampling requirements for sustainable mine waste and tailings characterisation, monitoring and end-stage storage.
Pre-concentration technologies with sensor-based ore sorting in particular allows insight into the adverse impact of emissions. These technologies for increased mining systems productivity are still to be embraced by many industry sectors and regulators. Sensor-based ore sorting can help reduce environmental impacts, whether regarding the impact on specific emissions, on water pollution /or on energy consumption. But mineral processing technology, and sensor-based ore sorting can also be applied to eliminate environmental liabilities, by recovering value from waste stockpiles and reducing the acid forming potential.
