2S Water Inc. Wins Fifth Annual Mining Cleantech Challenge
The Mining Cleantech Challenge featured 12 companies hailing from Canada, Finland and New Zealand. Each company was selected through a competitive vetting process by leaders and technology experts in the mining industry and invited to present virtually. Technologies presented at the Mining Cleantech Challenge offered sustainable solutions to improving mining operations by using clean technologies in the industry.
"The mining industry is at the core of the green revolution, it's all driven by metals like copper, aluminum and steel. Mining companies are taking action to make sure the industry is built on an environmental foundation. 2S Water is here to enable them, providing the data that operators need about metals in water to meet and exceed their ESG goals," CEO of 2S Water, Anthea Sargeaunt, stated of their winning technology. 2S Water's winning technology, AquaValid, operates by taking in a small stream of water, sensing the water for a majority of metal contaminants and reporting back results in real time, giving mining operators more accurate and acute data about water quality. The "plug and play" feature of AquaValid minimizes financial, resource and time constraints that mining operators face with water testing and compliance.
Ideon Technologies was the second place winner with Copperstone Technologies Ltd coming in third place.
The 12 companies that presented at the 2021 Mining Cleantech Challenge included:
2S Water Incorporated
Program sponsors and partners were Newmont, Fresnillo, Royal Gold, BHP, and Anglo American as well as Clareo, Resource Capital Funds, Consulate General of Canada in Denver, RMI, Black & Veatch, Colorado School of Mines, and the Colorado Energy Office.
"The Mining Cleantech Challenge helps to harness innovation and occupies an important space in improving efficiency, meeting ESG goals, and defining the mining sector of the 21st century and beyond," said CCIA's Executive Director, Helen El Mallakh. "CCIA is proud to have hosted this dynamic event, which provides a platform for showcasing the best of cleantech from around the world.
