To strengthen our collaborations, we reach out regularly to exchange ideas with industry organizations and peers, as well as academia and government partners, discussing potential advancements that could benefit both the industry and our Company.  As part of the search for new technologies, we seek to broaden the organizations and innovators that we work together with by sharing information on our priority areas and opportunities. 


We currently operate a large fleet of ultra-class mining haul trucks. We are looking for options to reduce emissions from diesel combustion engines. This can be achieved either through modification of the truck (such as bolt-on kits, engine replacement, etc) or by modifying the fuel itself (either through the use of fuel additives or bi-fueling).

Our operations are located in a climate where summer temperatures can reach +30C and in the winter -45C. Solutions must take into account these temperatures.  The solution can include the use of diesel antifreeze/anti-gelling additives for -45C operation. If the solution cannot be operated in extremely low temperatures, it must provide a significant Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction in other parts of the year to offset not being used in the winter conditions.

For bolt-on solutions, ideally, we would like to see a minimum of 30% reduction in GHG emissions. We are looking for a step change in GHG reduction if we are to consider an additive.

For bio or renewable diesel solutions, we are looking at reducing diesel overall carbon intensity emissions by 50%

Please note we are not looking for traditional solutions that use plant or animal based lipid feedstock such as tallow, soybean, and other vegetable type oils as our assets are located in areas that do not have immediate access to those types of feedstocks. We are more interested in synthetic or other waste product derived lipids that can compete economically with traditional feedstocks.

What's in it for you?

A successful collaboration could mean forming a partnership to co-develop and co-launch the idea to market.

We are willing to collaborate with individuals and other industry participants/universities and solutions can be at any stage of development.
