Sustainable metal recovery and water treatment. The metal and mining industry is increasingly aware of the opportunities to recover valuable resources from process and bleed streams. This combines creating revenues with environmental sustainability. The traditional method of removing dissolved metals and sulphate from aqueous process- and waste streams in the metal and mining industry is by neutralization with an alkaline agent like lime. The gypsum and metal hydroxides which are produced in this process complicate reuse of the valuable metals, with large quantities of sludge and increasing costs as a result.

Water is indispensable for the mining industry. Water is both in the process and also generated by the process. Controlling the quality of the water and treating the waste waters for reuse is essential to this industrial market. Aquatech, a global water treatment leader, has more than 30 years of expertise in industrial water treatment solutions. Our wide range of technologies, services and knowledge can help solve the water issues for the mining industry.

The mining industry has the potential to use large amounts of wastewater in its operations. Often times these waste streams contain contaminants that require treatment before the water can be re-used or discharged. Biowater has successfully installed highly efficient biofilm treatment processes including our complete mix fixed film (CMFF®) system to remove BOD/COD, and nitrogen from mining waste streams. Biowater’s technologies, such as our CFIC® process, can produce effluent water quality that is acceptable for re-use, reducing the stress on ecosystems in water stressed areas.

Conventional wastewater treatment systems are focused on efficient removal of polluting components. This is commonly done through aeration and separation of formed biomass from the cleaned water. After treatment the water would be discharged onto surface waters or subsoil irrigation. Introduction of polishing steps after these treatment systems opened up the possibilities to reuse water for either irrigation or even potable water. DMT Environmental Technology also implements these solutions with its MemBioRex membrane bioreactor. Nowadays novel technologies enable reuse of saline water within industries such as unconventional oil and gas, industry, agriculture, and mining. DMT Water Technology develops and realises innovative products to enable our customers to meet these challenges.
