Aderco’s Sustainable Fuel Solutions: A Conversation with Francisco Malta, Director at VM Industrials, Representing Aderco Australia.
As we move towards a more sustainable future, the mining industry, like many others, is looking for ways to reduce its environmental impact.
Aderco is one of the only companies in this sphere to offer effective and consistently proven plant-based, environmentally friendly fuel conditioners. Aderco’s representative in Australia is VM Industrials, a company committed to bringing decarbonisation solutions to the mining industry. We spoke with Francisco Malta, Director at VM Industrials, to learn more.
Francisco’s role is to inform, educate and offer solutions that address the industry’s shift towards decarbonisation. He notes, “We approach and offer solutions that can be taken today with existing assets and fuels.”
Francisco was introduced to Aderco while living in Switzerland and instantly saw its potential in Australia’s growing interest in decarbonisation. He says, “I just thought it was a product that one day would be very much required in this imminent transition.”
The mining industry’s interest in Aderco lies in the product’s unique ability to handle fuel instabilities without causing further harm.
Francisco adds, “At this stage, I think Aderco is the only product that can offer 100% sustainable and renewable solutions, whilst improving fuel performance, efficiency and reducing emissions.”
He sees Aderco as a steppingstone in the mining industry’s journey towards lower emissions and sustainability. It helps improve the performance of existing mining equipment, reducing downtime and critical maintenance, thus improving operational efficiency and profitability.
The use of Aderco products also benefits a mining companies’ public image. Francisco observes a shift in the industry, where public companies are becoming aware of the increasing demand for environmental credentials. He says,
“The millennials and younger are more inclined to want to use sustainable and renewable solutions and will continue to build pressure.”
A great support for VM Industrials in verifying Aderco to help provide credibility in the mining community has been working with a Fortune 500 company for nearly six years, testing and verifying the benefits of Aderco products in the mining industry. This long-term engagement has led to a strong relationship and a series of case studies that are shared regularly at mining conferences.
Looking into the future, Francisco sees VM Industrials and Aderco playing a crucial role in the industry’s journey towards net zero emissions. He predicts, “With the right clients who can track data properly, there may be able the potential to create carbon credits for themselves… that would be the dream scenario, but I think we can get there.”
VM Industrials exemplifies the potential for innovative, sustainable solutions in the mining industry through the use of Aderco fuel conditioners. With continued dedication and innovative thinking, they are helping to embed Aderco as the greenest solution to helping Australia’s mining industry transition towards a sustainable future.
