Mining is critical to extracting and developing the raw materials that produce our nation's energy.
Mining is critical to extracting and developing the raw materials that produce our nation's energy. The U.S. gets 93 percent of its energy from mined sources, such as petroleum, natural gas, coal and uranium. Extracting these resources requires equipment running under extreme stress, often in remote and inhospitable areas. The equipment used in mining is uniquely qualified to do demanding work. No other power source shares diesel's reliability, durability and fuel-efficiency for these off-road applications. Diesel offers the best, and sometimes only power source to productively access these resources.
Overall, diesel is fundamental to the mining industry that utilizes nearly $7 billion worth of diesel-powered equipment. Diesel-powered shovels and drills excavate and load natural resources into enormous mining trucks or onto conveyer belts that also operate on diesel fuel. These powerful machines made after 2014 are also now able to meet the incredibly challenging fourth-generation Tier 4 engine emissions standards, which are near zero levels of emissions.
