Mining Industry Products & Technology
DuPont Mining Solutions is helping to solve many of the industry’s most serious challenges
Ever increasing population, urban growth and industrialization accompanied by demographic and geographic shifts, puts unprecedented demand on our planet and its resources particularly in today’s developing world.
The Mining Industry plays a key role due to the increase in demand on primary resources predominantly from emerging economies. The Mining Industry is constantly faced with the challenges of declining extraction grades, more geographically remote and/or politically challenging regions, increasing scale of projects and the increasing need for Safety & Environmental Protection and enhanced Productivity & Reliability.
DuPont is a company with expertise, science and innovation that can help the mining industry in solving the most pressing challenges.
We innovate and collaborate with companies, governments, industrial manufacturers, and academics to develop and test a wide range of best practice high performance materials such as, Kevlar®, Tyvek®, Tychem®, Nomex®, Hytrel®, Delrin®, etc. on different applications.
We can also help to transform workplaces and work cultures around the world to become safer, more efficient and socially and environmentally sustainable.
By working together, we can help the sustainable development in the Mining Industry.
