To achieve this goal, PTBA has developed a roadmap for decarbonization, and one of the existing programs is digitalization,” Suhedi said in a written statement on Monday (August 28, 2023).
Digital transformation, he continued, is part of the PTBA’s efforts to implement good practices in the mining industry. The use of digital technologies also increases the efficiency and sustainability of the business.
