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.
