Stantec’s Kim Trapani and Roberto Alvarez discuss using evolving technology to design mines in global publication, International Mining

Carbon emissions has become increasingly important to the public, investors, and other stakeholders. Stantec’s Kim Trapani and Roberto Alvarez explore how aspects of mining design, specifically ventilation, can help achieve net zero goals. They also share natural solutions to ventilate mines.

Kim also delves into how new technology can be utilized to design mine ventilation, saying “Autonomous technology is great for ventilation because it removes personnel from underground and, so, the air quality only needs to be good enough for the equipment to operate in.” A focus on automation can lead to higher standards of safety, innovation, and sustainability.
