Municiple Solid Waste RecyclingMining and energy activity is vital to global job creation, national development and building primary infrastructure in many low and middle income mineral-dependent countries – including the United States.

General Kinematics philosophy is driven by the enormous task of supporting communities while keeping close vigil on practices that ensure company policies support economic, environmental and social sustainability growth patterns. Saving energy and protecting the environment with sustainable mining and mineral harvesting processes benefits individuals and communities directly and indirectly impacted by mining operations.

Designing Equipment with Purpose

GK understands social responsibility starts at the design table. Engineers and equipment designers diligently work to develop manufacturing processes that lower energy consumption and reclaim and recycle manufacturing wastes. The equipment produces provides similar benefits to operators in the field.

Benefits in the Field

Efficient waste stream management during manufacturing is only the beginning. Sustainable equipment design features must translate into field practices and processes. By continually evaluating all processes in the mineral harvesting and use systems, engineers discover innovative modifications and technological solutions that provide mining operators more opportunities to reduce landfill deposits and expend less energy.

  • Two-mass vibratory screens operate with less horse power than traditional brute force screens and use up to five times less energy — reducing the carbon footprint and increasing efficiency substantially.
  • Compact sustainable mining equipment designs lower financial expenditures in numerous ways, such as reducing tunnel size requirements, lowering equipment maintenance expenses and improving recovery volume and process speed.
  • GK’s VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mills are designed to reduce the level of harmful toxins and chemicals traditionally used in mining activities — bolstering efforts to reduce soil contamination and residual, long-term chemical effects on the planet and workers.

Social Investments

From manufacturing equipment that supports highly efficient tailings management to supporting the community with Community Action Team projects, GK is passionate about reducing energy consumption and negative impacts on the environment throughout the mining process.
