Mining Cleantech Challenge

March 21, 2019 | Denver, CO | Presented By CCIA

Connecting the Mining Industry with Clean Technology Innovation

Program Overview
To be successful in today’s mining industry, you need advanced solutions, solutions that impact your bottom line but also advance your social license to operate. Mining companies are looking for ways to save water and energy within their facilities and are engaging their suppliers to integrate practices that conserve resources through remote sensing, on-site power, data analytics, and other methods.
The third annual Mining Cleantech Challenge quickly and efficiently provides targeted connections between mining industry operators, OEMs, and clean technology solution providers with a mutually beneficial goal of meeting industry’s needs while simultaneously introducing innovative solutions to the marketplace.
There are no geographic restrictions or requirements for participating companies. All participating companies have an opportunity to connect on potential commercial contracts, and the winning company receives a $5,000 prize.
