COMPETITIVENESS FACTORS AND ENAEX SOLUTIONS
THE FIRST EXPLOSIVES COMPANY IN CHILE TO MEASURE ITS CARBON FOOTPRINT BY PRODUCT UNIT, ENAEX’S CARBON EMISSIONS ARE UP TO 40% LOWER THAN OTHER INDUSTRY SUPPLIERS.
Solutions that seek mine stability by controlling the energy used during material removal. These solutions aim to ensure sustainable operations with appropriate slope and wall controls.HIDREX® AND PANFEX®:
Explosives specially designed to control slopes and blasts.
Solutions that seek to maximize costs by replacing electric energy with chemical energy in the crushing and grinding processes. Optimized fragmenting processes generate considerable savings in the mining process.High Fragmentation
A high-energy, high-power explosive product that improves rock fragmentation.
Solutions that seek to mitigate significant operating risks in mines where rocks react spontaneously when the rocky massif reaches high temperatures.PIREX®:
This blasting agent is specially designed to retard the reaction of ammonium nitrate and the pyrite in the rock.
|PRODUCTIVITY AND LOGISTICS
Solutions that seek to innovate in the social aspects of the blasting process in order to achieve sustainable development and community protection.PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE AND CARBON FOOTPRINT ANALYSIS:
Seeks to quantify the environmental impact of products during each of the individual processes involved in manufacturing, distribution, use and final disposal. Four environmental impacts were quantified in 2017: Climate change (carbon footprint of products) and consumption of water, non-renewable raw materials and purchased energy.
