bauma 2019: Sustainability in mining

Presented by
  • Earthmovers & Exacavators

The role of sustainability in the future of the mining industry will be the focus of this year’s bauma show

bauma 2019 will be focusing on new technologies and trends for the coal, iron and steel industries.

Taking place April 8–14 in Munich, Germany, bauma 2019 will position itself as a platform for sustainable mining.

With industries searching for alternative, low-priced and environmentally friendly raw materials and energy sources, bauma 2019 will be a hub for global discussions and technology transfers.

Less energy, fewer resources: the demands being placed on the future of the mining industry are clear. This transformation affects all aspects of mining – in every region of the world. For this reason, the issue of sustainability is playing an increasingly important role for the industry.

The aim is not only to optimize the use of energy and resources, but also to introduce alternative energies and new technologies. New energy can be produced in places where coal was once mined, or hollowed-out slag heaps are turned into interesting storage sites. New technologies are not just environmentally and economically fuelling this trend; they are creating benefits for society as well.

In a reflection of this, the industry’s interest in sustainable mining is rising. The coal, iron and steel industry is transforming itself by miniaturizing drilling technologies and analysis tools. These enhancements increase the efficiency of site development and improve mining processes. This applies both to pre- and post-mining operations that require comprehensive planning. Potential can be identified and tapped by including all relevant actors in the effort.

As part of a focus section on mining, bauma 2019 will bring together all key players in the industry and showcase new technologies and trends in the coal, iron and steel industry. Manufacturers like ABB, DSI, FAM Förderanlagen, FLSMIDTH, Haver Niagara, Komatsu, KGHM Zanam, Miller Technology, Paus, Siemens, ThyssenKrupp Industrial, WEIR Minerals and many others will present their highlights and innovations.

"By selecting sustainability, bauma 2019 is focusing on a real issue of the future," says Mareile Kästner, exhibition director of bauma.

"There is no other such venue where all key players in the industry can have an opportunity to discuss the issue of sustainability so thoroughly. This will make bauma the ideal place to conduct successful business."

Visitors to the trade fair will find an up-to-date overview of all exhibitors online in the bauma exhibitor directory. More information about the trade fair is available at
