Dublin, July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Green Mining Market by Mining Type (Surface and Underground), Technology (Power Reduction, Fuel and Maintenance Reduction, Toxicity Reduction, Emission Reduction, and Water Reduction), and Region (NA, SA, EU, APAC, MEA) - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

Power reduction, fuel, and maintenance reduction, emission reduction, water conservation, and mining closure are the best practices that will foster the green mining practice during the forecast period. The mining industry is primarily driven by cost savings, and the mining companies are now beginning to adopt new and greener technologies.

The market size of green mining was USD 9 billion in 2019 and is projected to register a CAGR of 7.5% between 2019 and 2024.

Growing concern about the environment and climate changes and its effects on the mining industry are expected to drive the green mining market during the forecast period. The mining industry is a large consumer of energy and resources which position the industry in conflict with the government and local communities.

The costs of energy, especially the price of electricity has risen rapidly, and the dependable supply has been an alarming issue that the mining industry is trying to address. Mining companies are following a lot of practices in order to reduce energy consumption in their operations, minimize the use of water, and lower their carbon footprint.

The leading players of the green mining market are Rio Tinto (UK), Glencore (Switzerland), BHP Billiton (Australia), Vale S.A. (Australia), Shenhua Energy Company Limited (China), and Anglo American (UK).
