The raw material mining and processing industry belongs to the most energy exhausting, environmental aggressive yet socially controversial branches of the economy. Therefore its optimisation should be targeted on both the overall efficiency and mitigating the environmental impact otherwise mining and fossil fuels based power generation would leak outside the most developed countries. The development of modelling and calculation methods incorporating advanced clouds computing, artificial intelligence algorithms and sophisticated sensors technology allows building comprehensive digital twins of objects, systems and processes representing the whole chain of the raw material mining and processing processes.
One of the most challenging industry processes in the modern economy is the sustainable power generation in its transition course from fossil fuels base to the “green” solutions to match carbon and toxic emissions limits and the other environmental impact like dust, noise, vast areas of terrain degradation. Because this industry is particularly capital and operational costly, it needs complex investigations that could return substantial savings measured in money, energy consumed and social benefits.
The proposed topics of this Special Issue of Energies are: 1. Sustainable processing of raw materials for an optimization of mining, energy production and environmental engineering. 2. Improved efficiency of the raw material mining and processing processes with the use of its quality control track from the deposit modelling, through modelling of mining, transport and final processing operations with regard to environmental issues. 3. Raw material solutions for a sustainable energy conversion and storage with “green power” sources. 4. Resource recycling, efficiency and secondary raw materials management as a contribution to climate change mitigation. 5. Strategies, identification of sources, dispersion modelling and methods of reducing and limiting air pollutant emissions to the atmosphere in the heating, mining and energy industry.
