Queensland headquartered engineering services and solutions company Global Road Technology’s (GRT) innovative approach to dust control is being backed by the Queensland Government’s Ignite Ideas Funds.

GRT recently received $100,000 in the Round 9 Ignite Ideas Funding through the Advance Queensland innovation initiative designed to support commercialisation projects that will benefit the economyinto the future.

The funding will grow awareness for the company’s Australian-made SMART Dosing Unit (pictured), an automated dosing system designed to enhance the effectiveness of dust suppression and water management systems on mine sites.

According to GRT CEO Troy Adams: “Our SMART dosing technology is receiving great traction in the mining industry with trials being run on some of the biggest mine sites in Australia as miners look at ways to reduce their carbon footprint and the amount of particulate pollution generated by their activities – both issues that our product an address.

“Tthese Australian-manufactured SMART Dosing Units consist of a central control and satellite communication module utilising Internet of Things (IoT) technology to provide the ability to remotely control and automate product use.”

This announcement comes at a time of significant growth for GRT an international, engineering technology company that provides innovative products and solutions for the mining, civil, agricultural, resources, land development, and environmental management sectors.

In February, it announced a new partnership with TotalEnergies Marketing Australia, a subsidiary of TotalEnergies SE, to become its exclusive distributor.

“This partnership will be transformational for GRT,” Adams said.

TotalEnergies will supply a suite of environmentally safe, sustainable and cutting-edge dust suppression products, designed to stabilise soil while stopping the spread of airborne particulate pollution at mine sites.

GRT is also investing significantly in R&D, digital transformation and innovation to make it a leader in air pollution reduction at a time when the mining industry is looking at ways it can address its environmental impact and provide greater protection for workers.
