Closed PHOENOPIPE® Conveyor Belt
Pará Region, Brazil: In northeast Brazil, located in the Tapirape-Aquiri National Park, lies South Americas largest copper mine. Aside from copper, the region is also extremely rich in other natural resources such as gold, tin, bauxite, crude oil and iron.
The Pará region is not only a reservoir of raw materials but is also an ecologically sensitive area with unique plant and animal species, a part of Amazonia, the largest tropical rain forest on earth. The Amazon basin is earth’s central green lung and of paramount importance to global climate.
Consequently, industry and mining here are bound by strict environmental restrictions. To provide optimal environmental protection, a conveyor line was required to carry copper ore and overburden while causing minimal damage to the fragile ecosystem.
PHOENIX takes its responsibility toward our planet seriously and designed a conveyor belt for this application.
The closed PHOENOPIPE® conveyor belt ensures that all material is safely contained and that no material, dust or other fine particles are released into the environment.
PHOENOPIPE® closed conveyor belts are growing in popularity due to their ability to meet ever increasing environmental protection requirements.
