Opening up and Innovation
With the development and application of mineral resources, lots of tailings have been generated, which has not only worsened environment pollution, but also occupied a lot of land. In recent years, researches on comprehensive utilization of tailings have been launched one after another. With the support of national policies, tailings utilization has been taken as a field with the highest potential to strengthen the practice research on the comprehensive utilization of minerals, revive and develop mining enterprises, promote the continuous construction and operation of mineral exploitation industry and realize Chinas goal of sustainable development. In 2019, the total output of iron tailings was 521 million tons, accounting for 40.9% of the total mineral output. The comprehensive utilization of iron tailings has become increasingly urgent. In the comprehensive utilization of iron tailings, we should strengthen our understanding and mastery of standardization, develop complete measures for comprehensive utilization of iron tailings based on the actual conditions of China, expand the comprehensive utilization channels of iron tailings, reasonably advance the comprehensive utilization of iron tailings, and enhance the mineral resource utilization efficiency.
Since the mid 1980s, Chinas energy management has adopted energy balance test and energy audit to urge energy consuming units to install standard meters and gradually discard backward equipment with a high energy consumption, improve the energy-saving performance of main equipment and optimize the energy saving of energy consuming systems. Energy management has drawn more and more attention, which has involved all employees as an overall, comprehensive and normalized task. Therefore, energy management system has become much more well-received as a technical support platform that can reflect the energy utilization status of energy consuming units at any time.
In recent years, due to wide application in emerging fields such as battery, medicine, nuclear industry, aerospace and new energy vehicles, lithium mineral has shown an overall trend of rapid growth in terms of output and consumption and been internationally recognized as a strategic mineral. Following the pace of the market, the Company began to increase investment in the survey of lithium ore resources in 2022.
