Industry experts to present latest developments in emission reduction

Emission reduction technology experts will be presenting the latest information about the most effective management of diesel emissions at two special seminars hosted by experts Peak3 in February (22) and March (14).

Peak3 CEO, Col Chandler said the “Practical Guide to Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) Management” sessions were designed to provide mining industry professionals, including those working in occupational health and safety (OH&S), mechanical engineers, maintenance engineers and ventilation managers, with information about the latest emissions management programs and technologies.

Mr Chandler said the demand for the seminars came from mine management who needed to ensure they were aware of the latest developments in this rapidly changing sector.

Diesel emissions include up to 41 toxic compounds – which pose health risks to underground miners. There are strict emissions regulations being implemented globally and Peak3 aims to become the ‘standard’ for end-to-end emissions management in the mining industry. The companies focus is on helping companies reduce costs and reduce emissions through better use of new planning, monitoring and treatment technologies and services. At the heart of that approach is Evidence Based Emissions Management.

Peak 3, a Queensland Science and Engineering company, also provides a range of monitoring and emission planning services to the mining market and has just secured a significant investment from the One Ventures Innovation Fund to commercialise its latest technologies.

“Trying to manage Diesel emissions  can cost mining companies a significant amount of money To do it properly,  up to date information is vital which is why we have brought together science and industry leaders to provide the latest information to those managing the problem,” Mr Chandler said.

“The goal is to ensure that diesel emissions management is effective, efficient and doesn’t impact mine productivity ’.”

The seminars will include presentations from seven industry experts:

  • Colin Chandler, Peak3 CEO, will present DPM “The Myths and Reality”
  • Dr Patrick Glynn, CSIRO, will present “Current Treatment and Monitoring in Mines”
  • Dominic Posavec, DMS Underground Division, will present “The Vehicle as a Solution”
  • Dr Richard Brown, Assoc Prof QUT, will present “Diesel Engine Efficiency and Emissions as Mech Markers”
  • Ray Morgan, Peak3, will present “Monitoring”
  • Dr Zoran Ristovski, Assoc Prof QUT, International Laboratory of Air Quality and Health, will present “The Health Aspects of DPM”; and
  • Neil Davey, Peak3, will present “Treatment and Monitoring Automation.

Two free seminars will be held:

  • In Brisbane on 22 February from 8.20am to 12noon at QUT Brisbane, 2 George Street – Room GP-S405T.  RSVP by 17 February.
