Ger 2016 • VDMA MINING SUPPLEMENT VDMA 15 Published by Mining Media Int'l in cooperation with the VDMA Mining EQUIPO | INGENIERÍA | TECNOLOGÍA Articles in this publication were researched, edited and written by Steve Fiscor, editor-in-chief of Engineering & Mining Journal ( E&MJ ) and Coal Age . For addi- tional information about the articles or the manufacturers highlighted here, please contact Mining Media International (info@mining-media.com). Commodities that cannot be harvested must be produced in an alternative matter: recycling or mining. Recycling fails due to some deficiencies. Mining is the most effective method to extract raw materials. This applies not only to fossil raw materials, but also to all metal and mineral raw materials essential for alternative power generation, including raw material requirements for the storage of alternative generated power, e.g., battery storage. Energy revolution without mined commodities will fail to function. Also an essential point to judge the importance of mining and mining equipment is the demand of people in developing countries for a reliable supply of heat and energy as well as improvements in infrastructure. Both need raw materials and, consequently, mining to overcome these disadvantages. The highly developed, safe and proofed mining technology is provided by German mining equipment manufacturers. If mining is indispensable for the foreseeable future, the aim is to act as safe and environmentally friendly as possible. German manufacturers of mining equipment have taken great efforts to optimize operational safety of the machines. In cooperation with their worldwide customers, this leads to a unique level of safety, particularly for underground mining. This also leads to substantial improvements in energy consumption, optimized endur- ance of machines and plants, and higher efficiency in total. Further advances in technology will be achieved by Industry 4.0 or Mining 4.0. Different approaches are followed by the industry and all experts agree that the future of mining will be digital. This edition of Best of Germany focuses on work being done by VDMA Mining member companies to give the best possible support to the global mining industry. We hope that you find value in this publication, wherever you are in the world. Glückauf!
