Diamond Low Energy Consumption Will Increase Diamond Production

2008: Diamond Low Energy Consumption Will Run Diamond Industry Efficiently

February 2008

De Beers is resuming production at its South African mines after it ended operations temporarily due to a country wide power shortage.

The announcement follows an agreement between Eskom, the state-run power company, and the Chamber of Mines of South Africa to restore most of the power at De Beers’ major South African mines.

De Beers Consolidated Mines Managing Director David Noko found it "encouraging" that De Beers had already succeeded in lowering its energy consumption by at least three percent in 2007 from the levels consumed in 2006.

Two percent of the company’s global energy consumption came from renewable resources.
