Business Industry Partners (BIP)

The TAILENG foundation advances the state-of-art and state-of-practice in earth resources engineering and mine tailings management through strategic partnerships with the mining industry and consulting companies. These strategic partnerships will be fostered through the TAILENG Business Industry Partners advisory board (BIP).

A BIP will be instrumental in steering impactful research and educational initiatives through participation in an annual meeting (fall of each year) when potential initiatives will be identified, discussed, and selected. In addition, a BIP will receive complimentary and discounted registrations to professional development and engagement activities, acknowledgment on scientific and engineering publications promoted by the TAILENG foundation, and have numerous opportunities to interact with the TAILENG foundation network. The current BIP members are :

There are two general BIP categories: Industry and Consulting.  Industry BIP includes mining and power industry companies, whereas the Consulting BIP includes engineering firms as well as government organizations and non-profit agencies. For each category, there are two tiers (Tier 1 and Tier 2) available for potential BIPs to provide financial flexibility for potential members to support the TAILENG foundation at a level that is suitable for their organization.
