Weir partners with CEEC International to make mining more sustainable

In addition to renewing its support, Weir will participate in CEEC’s newly launched Global Water Initiative, a collaboration to drive action to ensure responsible water use within the industry.

Water is fundamental to the way in which minerals are processed. However, in some parts of the world there is not enough, and in some parts, there is too much, therefore mining needs to use water wisely. Weir understands this and is developing tailored solutions to help the industry increase water recovery and recycling rates and, where possible, introduce water-free steps within mining processes.

The Global Water Initiative is a critical step towards addressing water management and risk mitigation in mining and the wider resources sector. The initiative, which will drive collaboration and knowledge exchange across industry experts, seeks to build a shared understanding, identify gaps, and outline necessary actions to solve water-related challenges, prioritise sustainable water practices, and support overall improvements in ESG performance.

Andrew Neilson, President of the Minerals Division at Weir, said:

"We are delighted to continue our partnership with CEEC International as we innovate to help our customers provide more of the metals society needs, in more sustainable ways. Water management is an increasingly critical issue in mining and we are excited to work with other stakeholders to drive positive change as part of the Global Water Initiative.”

Janine Herzig, Executive President of CEEC International, added:

"The Global Water Initiative is a vital platform to collectively address water-related challenges within the sector. We are excited to have Weir actively participating in this initiative, which will undoubtedly drive positive transformation in water management practices."
