About Us

Our Story

Electrify Everything.

Zero Nexus was founded in 2019 by Canadian mechanical engineer, David Francis Lyon, with an initial focus on integrating battery technology in underground mining equipment. Originating as 6SYNCT Consulting, the company evolved beyond its consulting roots to address a broader scope of industry challenges. Recognizing the need for better information strategies, Zero Nexus championed Information Democracy to facilitate transparent technology assessment and bridge the gap between problem statements and emerging technologies. This transformation marked Zero Nexus’ shift from a pure consulting firm to the foundation of an Ecosystem, connecting innovative solutions with industry needs.

Today, Zero Nexus is a leader in sustainable mining practices, advocating for open information sharing and triple zero targets — zero emissions, zero harm, and zero entry. Under Lyon's leadership, Zero Nexus imparts these values while tackling industry-wide challenges, including raising BEV awareness and addressing skilled worker shortages. Zero Nexus also engages in relevant funded projects, such as a National Research Council-funded project on the mining industry's electrification readiness.

Working Towards Shared Objectives

Implementation: Scrutinize and select projects that proactively contribute to our objectives:​


  • Zero Emissions: Actively reduce carbon footprints and achieve carbon neutrality in line with climate action.

  • Zero Harm: Vigilantly protect the health and safety of people and ecosystems, minimizing and eliminating risks.​

  • Zero Entry: Strategically implement remote and automated processes that remove the need for human presence in harmful and hazardous environments.​


Implementation:  Select projects based on their potential to generate and share innovative insights, methodologies, or technologies.


A key aspect of this directive is the commitment to openly share findings, fostering a culture of transparency and collaborative growth in the industry. This could involve publishing research, participating in industry forums, or collaborating with academic institutions.​

Implementation: Embrace projects that bolster Canadian leadership in technology adoption.


This principle emphasizes the importance of not just adopting new technologies but also leading the discourse and implementation of these technologies, especially within the Canadian context. Projects should be evaluated for their potential to enhance the organizations reputation as a thought leader in the field. This could mean engaging in cutting-edge projects, pioneering new approaches in your industry, or actively participating in shaping technology policies and standards.​
