In its most recent Global Mining Waste Management report, research company Technavio revealed that the global mining waste market is expected to grow from the 68,76-million tons generated in 2017 to nearly 87-million tons by 2022, with 10% to 13% of the overall market contributed by South Africa. In simple terms, the country can expect its mining waste to grow by about 2,36-million tons from the estimated 8,9-million tons it produced in 2017 to about 11,3-million tons by 2022.

The days of trying to convince the C-suite of the imperative of a comprehensive digitalisation roadmap are well and truly over. There doesn’t appear to be a CEO in the world who doesn’t appreciate the immense value, efficiencies and competitiveness that can be unlocked by fully harnessing the power of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

As South Africans settle into the routine and inconvenience of load shedding and planning their activities around shifting electricity supply, it is businesses that are taking the biggest hit through the loss of operational capabilities, productivity and profitability. While individuals deal with manoeuvring their household times and sitting in gridlock traffic, local businesses, hospitals, schools, and industrial sites must find ways to remain operational despite limited generating capacity.
