Welcome to Mining Now, where we discuss the latest developments in the mining industry. In this episode, we have Jon Wetmore, Vice President Downstream & Chemicals at Imperial, and Lynette Lefsrud, Global Program Leader, Sustainable Solutions at Finning, to talk about how both companies are working together to create a more sustainable future in Canadian mining.
Imperial Oil is a Canadian petroleum company with mining operations committed to responsibly developing Canada’s energy resources for over 140 years while Finning is the world’s largest Caterpillar equipment dealer.
We also discuss renewable diesel, its importance in the energy transition, and how it is made from natural oil and fats, thus reducing carbon emissions. We explore the opportunity to use this fuel alternative across Canada’s mining sites and the transportation sector, including the long-term benefits and impact on emissions reduction.
Finally, we look into the major opportunities in the mining sector leading up to 2030 and beyond, as Imperial and Finning collaborate to find solutions that work for the mining sector. This episode promises to be insightful for anyone interested in the future of sustainable mining practices in Canada.
