Mining & Metal Industry ProductsCommercial Solutions for Mine Operators
Mining Industry Products & Services
The global mining and metals industry is continually focused on future growth through expanded production, without losing sight of operational efficiency and cost optimization. In many of today’s mining sectors, demand remains strong despite lower commodity prices, which means there is a greater imperative for mine operators to balance flexibility with a sure-footed commercial strategy.
For nearly three decades, Targray has collaborated with mining companies, industrial manufacturers, and researchers to commercialize and supply a diverse range of high performance materials for rapidly-growing cleantech manufacturing sectors, notably solar and lithium-ion battery.

B99 Biodiesel: A Cost-efficienct Clean Air Solution for Mines
There are a number of control strategies underground mines can take to improve air quality, including increased ventilation, installing newer engines with better exhaust profiles, and the use of environmental cabs. One of the most cost-effective, however, is the utilisation of high level biodiesel blends such as B99.
The Mining Safety and Health Administration (MHSA) has endorsed biodiesel primarily as a means of reducing total and elemental carbon levels in underground mines and meeting the required exposure limits. But using Biodiesel in the underground mining sector comes with a number of other important benefits, including:
- Access to state-level incentives such as an exemption from the diesel fuel tax.
- Superior diesel engine maintenance thanks to the improved lubricity of Biodiesel vs standard diesel.
- Improved safety due to the lower flammability of Biodiesel.
