Wastewater Treatment in the Mining and Extractive Industries
In general, liquid waste from the mining and extractive industries contains waste from extraction processes, equipment washing, and refining processes. It tends to be sludge-type waste that is stored in large rafts. Coagulants and flocculants are used to treat this water, usually by precipitation and metal precipitators depending on its nature. Efficient management and reuse of water in mining mean cost savings and increased throughput.
Our technical-commercial department will help you to select the most suitable treatment (most efficient technical and economical solution) based on our experience and treatability studies in our application laboratory, as well as on the implementation of these treatments on an industrial scale.
Our experience in the mining sector means we are aware of the added difficulties presented by effluents in the extractive and mining industry sector. It is complex wastewater that requires bespoke physiochemical and biological treatments based on the choice of coagulant, flocculant or biological solution suitable for each type of wastewater typical of industrial processes in the mining sector.
