Outotec Oyj: Outotec cooperates with Tomra Sorting GmbH to expand its comminution product portfolio

OUTOTEC OYJ PRESS RELEASE APRIL 7, 2014 at 1.00 PM

Outotec cooperates with Tomra Sorting GmbH to expand its comminution product
portfolio

Outotec has agreed with Tomra Sorting GmbH on cooperation in the supply of
Outotec-branded sorting solutions for the mining and metallurgical industry.
Tomra Sorting is a global leader in sorting technology, setting the bar for
sensor-based sorting. By combining Tomra's sorting equipment and Outotec's
comprehensive application and comminution expertise, customers can be offered
energy-efficient process solutions which help them to increase productivity,
decrease costs and thereby extend the life of their mining operations and
increase the overall value of their deposit.

Sorting is used to separate ore from waste rock at mine sites. Tomra's
sensor-based sorters can reduce specific energy consumption by 15 percent, as
well as reduce the amount of water used by three to four cubic meters per
tonne of ore. Although sorting is a rather new technology in the metal
mining industry, it is a proven concept in industrial minerals processing,
recycling and demanding food industry. Tomra has sold approximately 10,000
devices for these industries worldwide. Declining ore grades, high energy and
production costs, water shortages and increasing environmental regulations
require innovative process solutions, and thus create business opportunities
for Outotec.

"Tomra's sorting equipment will complement our comminution product portfolio
and strengthen our market position. We work hard to ensure that our offering
is the best in the industry when it comes to resource efficiency and
minimizing emissions - all in all, reducing the ecological footprint of our
customers wherever possible. The cooperation with Tomra will support us in
addressing our customers' challenges in the energy-intensive mineral
processing industry. Our sustainable solutions differentiate us from the
competition", says Kalle Härkki, Head of Outotec's Minerals Processing
business area.

"As a trusted supplier with more than 200 installations in mining segment
around the world, Tomra Sorting continues to seek out and expand options for
the beneficiation of ores and minerals. Cooperation with Outotec will provide
excellent opportunity to penetrate further into this market segment and
utilize our experience from other industries", says Dr. Volker Rehrmann, Head
of Tomra Sorting Solutions.
