Reducing fuel usage and generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions are two of the most prominent issues in the mining industry today. And Caterpillar is focused on doing our part to help you address this challenge.

We continue to invest in research and development aimed at products that generate fewer direct emissions. We also recognize that the more efficiently you operate, the less fuel you burn. So we’re increasing our investment in high-efficiency energy conversion and electrification, expanding the use of alternative fuels, maximizing the efficiency of power systems, and looking for new ways to help you do more with less. Our strategy is to develop a diverse portfolio of solutions that allow you to match the right product to your application.

Taking a full site perspective

Beyond the individual offerings we provide, our mining experience and integration expertise give us the ability to bring these offerings together into a customized solution. We take a full site approach —whether we’re implementing our proven autonomous mining systems, helping mines transition to new energy solutions, providing machines that run on alternative fuels or that are powered by electricity, or delivering asset health and support services that maximize the life and performance of every machine on site.
