Disruptive Technologies and energy intensive user’s innovation zone at WAMPEX 2022

Mining is a very energy intensive industry and innovation and disruptive technologies are current characteristics of the energy sector today especially about large energy users.

Many energy intensive industries are under increasing pressure to reduce their energy consumption for two key reasons:

                     Improving the efficiency and reliability for operating cost savings

                     Reduction of energy use for environmental reasons

That is disruptive technology

Disruptive technology is an innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, or businesses operate. A disruptive technology sweeps away the systems or habits it replaces because it has attributes that are recognizably superior.

Exhibit in the Disruptive Technologies and energy intensive user’s innovation zone
