Metal & Mining
Wastewater treatment metal and mining industry
Mining for metals and alloys is an extremely water-intensive industry that not only requires large volumes of feed water, but also results in enormous amounts of heavily polluted and highly concentrated wastewater. In most cases, mining camps are situated in areas where fresh water is scarce, thus limiting the availability of process water for mining operations.
Because of this, the metal and mining industry faces several challenges. However, the supply of process water in an area with limited water sources, the treatment of polluted wastewater and rainfall, and the prevention of acid mine drainage are considered the most critical.
Membrane products for metal and mining industry
The robust ultrafiltration membranes of Berghof Membranes are widely used for the recovery of mined recourses from waste streams. In addition, our membranes can efficiently and cost-effectively treat highly polluted wastewater to be reused as process water, a crucial factor for the operational results of a mining camp.
