Creating a safe working environment is a complex issue and requires a concerted effort by all stakeholders over a sustained period of time, posits cement, lime and related products supplier PPC technical and lime executive Hardie de Beer. “It is this understanding that is at the core of PPC’s approach to safety at all its operations.”
Draft White Paper changes focus to improve impact on country
Published: 21 Sep 18
The Department of Science and Technology’s (DST’s) recently released draft White Paper on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) contains a number of policy shifts in comparison with its predecessor, the 1996 White Paper on Science and Technology. These are intended to allow STI to fulfil its potential to drive economic growth and development and to ensure that the country becomes a “winning nation” in STI.
A ‘sovereign innovation fund’ proposed in draft technology policy
Published: 21 Sep 18
The Department of Science and Technology (DST) has, in its recently released draft White Paper on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI), stated that a “sovereign innovation fund” is to be created. “There is a need for increased commercialisation funding,” said section 6.2 of the draft White Paper. “A sovereign innovation fund will be formed to leverage co-investment by the public and private sectors to address gaps in technology commercialisation.”
Africa needs to invest in fuel cell technology Africa needs to invest in fuel cell technology

Countries are recognising the value and future impact that fuel cells and hydrogen technologies will provide. Now is the time for Africa to join this global movement and invest in the fuel cell future, says Washington-based global advocacy organisation Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association communications and outreach director Jennifer Gangi. “Fuel cells generate electricity using an electrochemical reaction – not combustion. Aside from being efficient, reliable and quiet, fuel cells are rugged, so they can be sited in harsh terrain, extreme climates and rural areas without infrastructure to generate power for buildings, communication and mission critical equipment.”
Young generations push record diamond demand but require new approaches by industry
Published: 21 Sep 18
The worldwide demand for diamond jewellery set a new record high of $82-billion in 2017, diamond giant De Beers reported in its “Diamond Insight Report 2018”. The driving forces behind this demand were Millennial and Generation Z (Gen Z) consumers, who, together, accounted for 66% of global diamond sales last year. Millennials means people who are currently in the age range from 21 to 39, when Gen Z covers those who are currently ages 20 years or younger.
Focus turns to nonexplosives-based rock breaking as quest for safer, more-efficient mining intensifies Focus turns to nonexplosives-based rock breaking as quest for safer, more-efficient mining intensifies
Published: 21 Sep 18
The South African mining industry, once the backbone of economic growth, intensive job creation and development, is declining constantly, owing to the slow rates of research and development into newer, safer, modernised, mechanised and continuous mining methods. A key pillar of improving mining efficiency and safety for personnel – as mining becomes deeper in search of orebodies – is using alternative rock-breaking methods to replace the legacy explosives-based methods.
Supplier grows installed base of  Cavex hydrocyclones Supplier grows installed base of Cavex hydrocyclones Has Video

There is a fast-growing installed base of Cavex hydrocyclone technology in coal processing in both classification and dense-medium separation (DMS) applications, according to mining equipment supplier Weir Minerals Africa. “This is as a result of the lower total cost of ownership achieved by clients using the Cavex hydrocyclones in their operations,” Weir Minerals Africa cyclones product manager Sheldon Gabriel tells Mining Weekly.
R&D on clean  coal technologies crucial in SA R&D on clean coal technologies crucial in SA

The research and development (R&D) of clean coal technologies in South Africa is absolutely necessary, says Fossil Fuel Foundation director and recently retired Department of Science and Technology-National Research Foundation South African Research Chairs Initiative Clean Coal Technology chair Professor Rosemary Falcon. Clean coal technologies are a collection of technologies being developed to reduce the environmental impact of coal during production and in energy generation.
Local coal future depends on economic situation Local coal future depends on economic situation
Published: 21 Sep 18
Coal mining currently provides more than 86 000 jobs locally, and this figure will increase as more junior mines are expected to open in the future, provided that the economic situation “does not deteriorate further”, says coal consulting company XMP Consulting senior coal analyst Xavier Prévost. South African coal production has remained stagnant during the last five years because of a lack of incentives and capital to implement new coal projects. However, production will soon drop drastically because some of the older, larger mine reserves are almost exhausted, he tells Mining Weekly.
Intensive coal  screening requires  fit-for-purpose equipment Intensive coal screening requires fit-for-purpose equipment
Published: 21 Sep 18
As coal beneficiation is generally a screening-intensive process, screening equipment is an important part of a coal plant and a major investment for the operation, says vibrating and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and supplier Kwatani CEO Kim Schoepflin. The local coal sector comprises various mine operators, from large global operations to small, emerging miners. Schoepflin points out that owing to this diversity, it is crucial that equipment suppliers understand the needs of individual operators to ensure fit-for-purpose equipment is supplied.
