Currently, the mining industry is facing several issues related to energy consumption so the optimized use of energy is an ever-increasing need. Mining - and especially minerals processing - routes for different ores (base metals, iron ore, bauxite, platinum, etc.) vary significantly, and the energy requirements and the opportunities for reduced energy consumption are also different. Iron ore has a special place in the global mining industry, judging by the volumes of ore processed and the energy usage.
