Making copper more sustainable
We are committed to minimizing the environmental impacts of our products and services at every stage of the product life cycle. Our technology delivers significant benefits, and we are undertaking our first life cycle assessment to quantify the environmental impacts of our catalytic technology.
Jetti reinvigorates depleting mines and converts waste streams into revenue. Jetti’s technology enables operators to make better use of existing resources and reduce the need to disturb untouched ground.
Hydrometallurgy requires less power and transportation than pyrometallurgy, meaning 40% less CO2, 70% less SOx and 70% less NOx associated emissions are generated.
Leaching requires less than half the water that traditional pyrometallurgical approaches need to produce the same amount of copper. Decreasing ore grades at mines around the world means that these savings are likely to improve over time.
Health and safety
Our approach to employee health and safety is focused on practices that ensure employees and contractors go home safe and healthy at the end of each working day. One of our key corporate goals is to have zero workplace injuries and occupational diseases, and our strategies for success include:
Implementing health and safety systems to identify and mitigate job hazards
Equipping employees with the tools needed to be safe at work, through training and education, personal protective equipment and sharing of best practices
Tracking and reporting safety incidents, including near misses, to understand and improve our safety performance
- Fatalities: 0
- Total Recordable Incident Rate: 0.0
