BASF and have announced a strategic partnership combining their expertise in mineral processing, ore beneficiation chemistry and industrial artificial intelligence technology. ‘BASF Intelligent Mine powered by’ will deliver AI solutions embedded with BASF’s mineral processing and chemical expertise. This solution will enable mine operations to become more efficient, sustainable and safe. 

BASF Intelligent Mine powered by is an open, real-time, decision-making platform that can be configured for individual sites, typically within three months. Each mining process, such as grinding, thickening, flotation and pumping, is supported by an Optimisation as a Service (OaaS) application, which predicts and simulates future performance, generating process-specific recommendations for insights and optimization. As multiple OaaS applications link together, customers can generate efficiency gains throughout the entire mine-to-market value chain. 

Remote operations access allows for 24/7 visibility of mine operational and financial performance, with BASF process experts available to provide real-time support. Additionally, the in-built simulation tool can be used to test alternative operating conditions, train staff and run non-intrusive ‘what if’ scenarios.

The AI solutions are based on a hybrid cloud architecture, enabling both on-site and cloud deployments, to help mining industry partners accelerate their digitalization programs in their operations.

"In a tough economic climate, the need to focus on mining productivity, within sustainable and remote operational constraints, is driving pressure on operating and capex budgets and requires innovative solutions with accelerated value delivery,” said Sam G. Bose, CEO of “The partnership between BASF and ensures mining organizations have a partner that understands both their operational risk as well as new technologies.”
