This talk will be given by our congress co-host and co-organizer Jenni Rekola. Sandvik is world-leading company producing underground and surface mining machines.

The huge transfer from conventional mining methods toward digitalization, automation and electrification is going on world wide at the moment.


The mining process efficiency needs to be improved in the future, because the mines are located in more difficult places, far away from the infrastructure and very deep underground.

The need of rare earth metal will increase in the future due to dramatically increased need of batteries.
