ENGIE Joins Mining3 to Accelerate Mining Industry Decarbonization by Co-Creating Hydrogen Solutions

By ENGIE - 22 July 2020 - 09:30

ENGIE joins Mining3, a leading global mining industry research organisation, in its next phase of hydrogen research to co-create hydrogen solutions and help reach carbon neutrality for the mining sector in the coming decades. 


ENGIE, a leading reference group in low-carbon energy and services, aims to accelerate the transition to a sustainable, carbon-neutral world through renewable energy, including renewable hydrogen and other environmentally friendly solutions. By accelerating the development of decarbonization solutions for mining operations, ENGIE reconciles economic performance with a positive impact on people and the planet . 


Mining3 with its industry members are dedicated to developing and delivering transformational technology to improve the productivity, sustainability, and safety of the mining industry.  Its members are mining companies, OEMs and research organisations including CSIRO, Newcrest, Komatsu, Dyno Nobel, The University of Queensland, OZ Minerals, South32, Queensland University of Technology, AngloGold Ashanti, Caterpillar and Vale. 


“ENGIE is delighted to join Mining3 and its members to co-develop renewable hydrogen-
based solutions for the mining industry,” said Michele Azalbert, CEO of ENGIE’s Hydrogen
Business Unit.
 “These solutions will help the industry players reach their carbon-neutrality
goals, as well as help reduce emissions for countries where mining is a key industry, such as
Australia, Brazil, Chile, Peru and South Africa, where we are developing hydrogen projects. 
Through partnerships and collaboration with other experts at Mining3, ENGIE is looking
forward to delivering renewable hydrogen solutions to the entire mining ecosystem.”


“Mining3 has already identified a number of projects that align with both ENGIE’s strategy
as well as the mining industry’s current and future needs. We believe that these only scrape
the surface of what can be done in this space, and are looking forward to developing a
diverse and forward-thinking energy roadmap for our members,” stated Mining3 CEO, Paul
. Our priorities at Mining3 are focused on developing next generation mining systems and technologies, and we see sustainability drivers and particularly renewables as key
components for this strategy in the coming years. We plan to be on the forefront of this
research, and I believe we can achieve this with ENGIE as a partner on renewable
