CCIA mining cleantech challenge 2021

Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) has announced the 12 technology companies selected to present at the Mining Cleantech Challenge (MCC) 2021. Altum has been added to this list of finalists, all selected from an international pool of applicants.

The MCC is one in a series of Cleantech Challenges that connect large industry partners directly to innovative clean technology solutions. The 2021 call for applications asked for companies capable of working on issues related to advanced materials and chemicals, biological solutions, blockchains, cyanide destruction and/or cyanide regeneration processes for slurries or solutions, electrification or battery applications, energy efficiency, machine learning, methane and nox gas detection or control, mercury abatement and/or removal processes, pre-concentration, plant solutions, process solutions, production efficiency, production management, remote/distributed power, remote operation or automation of machinery, remote sensing, resource characterization and mine planning, scale mitigation/prevention, slurry and/or dirty solution filtration, tailings/ waste handling and disposal, underground mining alternate energy options and water.

Altum’s solution helps to eliminate or prevent fouling/scaling from mining equipment such as valves, pipes, reactors and others to which it was a no-brainer for our company to apply to the challenge and help an industry which is desperately in need of solutions to one of the most problematic issues, industrial equipment fouling.

“This was one of the most robust and diverse sets of technology applications to date in our Challenge series,” said Helen El Mallakh, CCIA’s executive director. “Congratulations to the companies that have been selected to present at the 2021 Mining Cleantech Challenge. This is a significant accomplishment given the caliber and competitiveness of this year’s applicant pool.”
