There is no doubt that clean mining has recently been making the headlines. The mining industry has certainly progressed over the last several decades and there is much better transparency around where the industry needs to go to become more environmentally responsible.

In recent news that further supports the clean coal mining cause, Australia and China have launched the Clean Coal Technology Partnership fund to accelerate the development of low emission coal technologies. It is estimated that will continue to grow by nearly two-thirds to 2035 based on current trends. This $1.1 million fund will be used to create new low emission technology, such as gasification, ox-fuel combustion and post combustion.

The Clean Mining Alliance and Mining IQ partnership aims at creating synergies between the two organisations’ to accelerate and support the mining industry on the clean mining path.

Clean Mining Alliance Executive Director Dallas Kachanrecently stated, "New groundbreaking technology innovations will truly move the economic, safety and environmental footprint needles of mining."

Both Mining IQ and the Clean Mining Alliance agree that there is a requirement to spread the word about clean mining initiatives and Mining IQ can support the Clean Mining Alliance with these objectives.

The Clean Mining Alliance willleverage the integrity and reach of Mining IQ to scale its messages to a wider global business community.

Jacquie Bran, Mining IQ’s Editor, commented that a partnership with the Clean Mining Allianceis "a natural extension of our engagement and commitment to deliver relevant and timely content to the mining industry audiences we connect with daily."

But a new set of cleaner technologies are starting to emerge. Innovations from cleantech industries are starting to enter the mining sector to help make it safer, cleaner and less expensive. As a result, mining is cleaning itself up. The Clean Mining Alliance, a non-profit industry association, exists to showcase new emerging cleaner technologies in mining and the breakthrough companies around the world bringing them to market.
