MiTRAQ and Natural Resources Canada have unveiled the all-new Mining Energy Benchmarking Platform that aims at transitioning Canada's mining industry to a low carbon future. The platform enables analysis of power generation and consumption at mine sites and provides data-driven insight into energy use productivity, according to MiTRAQ. Canada aims to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas and revolutionize green energy by the end of 2021.
Developed through the collaboration of MiTRAQ and Natural Resources Canada's CanmetMINING subsidiary and the Office of Energy Efficiency, the platform provides mining companies with a multi-dimensional understanding of their relative performance within the industry to improve operations and increase their competitive advantage. It also will reduce the emission of carbon and other toxic substances into the atmosphere.
MiTRAQ ensures all data is secure, utilizing the latest 2FA (2 Factor Authentication) tokenized data and military-grade encryption. Simultaneously, only the mining company representatives can access their raw data, making all outputs completely anonymous. Miners with assets in Canada can start using this for free. In the framework of cooperation, NRCan will subsidize licenses so that mining companies can access the platform until June 2021.
