GRT’s Australian-made SMART Dosing Unit, which has been backed by a Queensland government innovation grant is an automated dosing system designed to enhance the effectiveness of dust suppression and water management systems on mine sites will be the centre-piece of its presentation.

It will educate miners on the importance of using whole-of-site particulate pollution control measures that combine data collection, AI tools, eco-friendly solutions and specially engineered products built to withstand the harshest Australian conditions can protect workers and communities from work-related lung-diseases like silicosis. 

For GRT CEO Troy Adams, the 2024 Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference will provide GRT and its distribution partner TotalEnergies Marketing Australia the opportunity to showcase products and services that can safeguard the health and safety of mine site workers.

The best solution for Dust Suppression

“Alongside our partners TotalEnergies Marketing Australia we are planning to educate the sector about our industry proven solutions to prevent excessive dust generation within the resources sector,” said Mr Adams. 

Are environmental regulations, health and safety concerns or potential profit loss a concern right now?

“One of our key focus areas will be to highlight the benefits of using our Queensland government backed SMART dosing technology to help Australian miners to reduce their carbon footprint and the amount of particulate pollution produced during mining activity.

We will highlight where this technology sits in our complete suite of non-toxic chemical dust suppression applications that twinned with our engineered dosing and application techniques deliver integrated dust management strategies that limit exposure times, measure particulate pollution, and allow us to deliver data-driven targeted control methods and ensure that workers are trained to recognise and understand risks.”
