OTR MINING TIRES RECYCLING PLANT
Metaproject develops its own OTR Mining tire recycling plant and electric power generation. The generation of used tires constitutes an international environmental problem and a major emergency. In an operation, about 12 to 14 thousand old tires are thrown out a year.
In Chile, high tonnage tires used by large copper mining are a worrying case, as they are being accumulated increasingly, becoming an environmental liability that occupies large areas of land, becoming true cemeteries of tires, which accumulate every year. Metaproject is venturing into an important project with the Thermocatalysis technique, the most innovative process for recycling tires, garbage and plastics, which produces oil, gas and coal and that will allow mining companies to provide electricity
SOME OF OUR FEATURED PROJECTS
Innovation and Sustainability for projects that generate development
All our projects are carried out under the philosophy of planetary engineering and mining
01. Design and Value Engineering for RCA Codelco Chuquicamata Environmental Commitments
Study that technically and economically develops thirty-four (34) environmental commitments, in order to ensure a “Reasonably Sustained Estimate”, with the basic specifications and designs, of those commitments that require investment for the Chuquicamata Division. It included the participation of the communities of Lasana, Chiu-Chiu, Calama, Sierra Gorda, Mejillones.
The study included the collection and background analysis, the baseline survey, diagnosis of the current situation, generation of alternatives, constructibility and interference analysis, preparation of site plans and alternatives at the prefeasibility level. Hazop workshop. Evaluation of alternatives. Development of a particular execution plan and the SIC of the alternatives. Application of Codelco standards in particular NCC 24-30-32 and 40. Delivery of recommendations
03. State of the Art of Mining Tire Recycling Technologies, Codelco Central
Feasibility Study for the design of the PIT and calculation of reserves of the gold deposits of Amalia Inés and Magdalena of the Gualcamayo Project, in the Province of San Juan – Argentina
04. Regulation of Mine Closure Plans. Colombian Government
Consulting Plans for the Closing and abandonment of Mines of Colombia, requested by the Energy Mining Planning Unit, Government of Colombia. It corresponded to the analysis of international legislation and cases of partial, temporary and definitive mine closure plans.
