Our environmentally-friendly solutions were showcased at the 64th Annual National Mine Safety & Environment Conference in Baguio
2017 has been a tough year for the country’s mining industry. Under the spotlight of various environmental groups including the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the mining industry has been challenged to present an environmentally responsible face.
At Maccaferri Philippines Inc., we have close ties to the mining community. We have been a constant presence at the Annual National Mine Safety & Environment Conference (ANMSEC) throughout the past decade. With a wide range of products that assist miners to protect the environment and rehabilitate mined out sites, we were pleased to be a Silver Sponsor for this year’s event held at the CAP-John Hay Trade and Cultural Center, Baguio City on November 21-24, 2017.
Our extensive engineering capabilities and range of products help miners overcome problems in each stage of a mine’s life cycle, from access and materials handling, slope protection, erosion control, product concentration, and leachate storage, to dewatering and site remediation.
With a large exhibit showcasing many of our newly introduced products, major players in the Mines & Geosciences Bureau, other Government agencies, mining companies and suppliers visited our booth. As in previous years, our hydroseeding technologies using our MacFlex and MacGanics mulches generated significant interest. Some leading mining companies were reporting significant success rehabilitating their mines using our products even in the most challenging situations.
We also featured MacRO rockfall solutions and our range of MacTex® woven and non-woven geotextiles which play an important role in sludge dewatering, silt containment, filtration and ground stabilization.
‘Engineering a better solution’ is not just a tag line; we continue to work closely with industry players to complement their efforts towards responsible mining.
