BME is a leader in blasting solutions for the mining sector and is building its commercial success on firm sustainability principles – which benefit both its social and natural environment.
After five years of steadily implementing its Safety for Life brand, Omnia Group company BME has successfully achieved one of its key safety targets – a zero recordable case rate (RCR) – for the year ending January 2023.
Leading the field in the way it incorporates used oil into its emulsion explosives, Omnia Group company BME is extending the benefits of this growing sustainability initiative to mining customers and other approved partners.
Another record-breaking blast has been notched up by Omnia Group company BME, using its latest generation AXXIS Titanium electronic detonation system.
The award was for BME’s incorporation of used oil as a base product for its emulsion explosives, removing the risk that this oil could contaminate water or soil. According to BME Managing Director (SADC) Ralf Hennecke, the initiative is part of the company’s ongoing environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitment.
Having successfully pursued a global expansion in recent decades, South Africa-based blasting leader BME is making good in an exciting new phase for its Indonesian operations.
BME Indonesia, part of South African blasting leader BME and the JSE-listed Omnia Group, has received a good mining practice award as the best performer in the blasting services category by the Indonesian government.
