Sibanthracite has won one of the most prestigious nominations of the competition ‘Leader of Competitive Procurement’.
The expert jury highly appreciated the project presented by the Sibanthracite Group for the competition – the purchase of high-performance crushing and screening complexes (DSK). Using this purchase, the company showed how to combine meeting production targets with reduced environmental impact and carbon footprint.
Three new crushing and screening complexes will replace 15 mobile screeners and 30 loaders, which will reduce emissions of pollutants by almost 300 tpy. Unnecessary handling and transfer of coal are excluded, fine coal fractions at the outlet will be treated with special anti-dust reagents. The new equipment runs on electricity, which will also have a beneficial effect on the environmental situation.
Anatoly Kuzmin, Procurement Director of Sibanthracite Management Company LLC, noted that the purchase of DSK is only part of the company's ‘green’ procurement programme: “When deciding on procurement, we must take into account the expected environmental effect. This is a global trend followed by Sibanthracite. Congratulations and thanks to colleagues from the Operations Directorate and other divisions of the company. This is our common victory.”
Other ‘green’ initiatives of the company include the use of electric excavators in mining operations, the transition to the use of environmentally friendly fuel – liquefied natural gas, the use of high-tech dust suppression guns, the use of new efficient technologies for coal processing against dusting, etc.
Last year, the company received an award for the project ‘Digitalization of the fueling system’ in the nomination ‘The best project for modernizing business processes in procurement’.
