MINE WASTE WATER

 

MINE WASTE WATER

Mine waste water can be run-off due to natural precipitation, process waste water from hydrometallurgical processes or acid mine drainage (AMD), also known as acid rock drainage (ARD). AMD refers to the acidic water that is created when sulfide minerals are exposed to air and water and, through a natural chemical and biological reaction, produce sulfuric acid. All of these waste waters typically contain heavy metals and often arsenic. Often mine waste water is collected untreated in so-called ‘tailing ponds’. Environmental regulation and the risk of spills into the environment, due to dame breakage, require efficient treatment of these waste waters.

Our reverse osmosis and nanofiltration elements can concentrate and separate those hazardous species and allow either discharge or reuse of the cleaned water.
