More sustainable water management for mining

| By Chemical Engineering



This company’s Process Water Recycling Plant (photo) is a fully automated standalone unit that enables recycling of process water from mining operations. The plant is specifically designed for concentrator plants, which dewater tailings and recycle the water back to the process. It enables undisturbed process performance by treating recycled water and removing accumulated substances to achieve the desired level of quality for the various duty points of the concentration process. Because the plant is modular and based on predesigned treatment units, it is fully configurable for each individual process. A full range of complementary services are available, including process assessment, laboratory- and pilot-scale testing and analysis, technical studies and remote monitoring and support. — Outotec Oyj, Helsinki, Finland
