Teijin Aramid received the 2016 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award for unmatched performance of conveyor belts reinforced with the company’s high-performance aramid products, which enable the mining industry to realize a lower cost of ownership, longer lifetime and reduced energy consumption. Frost & Sullivan, a leading independent market research firm, gave the award. Teijin’s Twaron-reinforced conveyor belt weighs up to 40 percent less and has reduced rolling resistance, resulting in high-energy savings of up to 25 percent and reduced emissions. These properties also increase lifetime, reduce downtime and maximize output.
