About CEEC

CEEC is a not-for-profit company whose mission is to accelerate knowledge and technology transfer in the field of energy-efficient comminution (crushing and grinding). CEEC aims to raise awareness of beneficial alternative comminution strategies with the objective of improving earnings, achieving lower processing costs and gaining energy efficiencies in the mining sector. CEEC has the patronage of Owen Hegarty, of G-Resources Group Ltd and Gekko CEO Elizabeth Lewis-Gray.

CEEC is the acronym for the Coalition for Eco Efficient Comminution. CEEC was established by a visionary group of mining industry leaders, who recognised the need to provide a platform for effective communication of the latest technical findings on efficient comminution practices.

Extensive research and improved engineering design has established that a range of improved blasting, crushing and grinding techniques may lower project costs, and carbon footprint. These include relatively straight forward strategies such as: removing waste material before size reduction, a better combination of grinding technologies and targeting larger grind sizes where mineralogy allows.

CEEC is funded wholly by industry sponsorship from Anglo American, Barrick Gold, Gold Fields, Indophil Resources NL, Gekko Systems, Ausenco, Xstrata Technology, Outotec, Orica, Derrick Corporation, Metso, AMIRA International, JKTech, MMG, Weir Minerals, Multotec and Russell Mineral Equipment.
