About This Webinar
Mining waters are often heavily contaminated with anionic and cationic species. Among the most prevalent and harmful compounds are toxic metals and anionic contaminants, such as sulphate, nitrate, chloride and cyanide. It is essential to treat discharged wastewaters and bring the concentrations of harmful dissolved contaminants to acceptable discharge levels. Another mining wastewater management concept is to reuse and recycle water within the process sections. Firstly, it makes mining operation more economically and environmentally feasible. Secondly, it allows for treating water only to a level suitable for a certain process rather than to an acceptable discharge level. At different operating stages electrochemical treatment can be considered as a promising solution to remove harmful contaminants.
During the webinar you will understand what the electrochemical treatment is all about, how researchers and industry are developing and implementing the technology, what is needed to bring the electrochemical technology to the industrial level.
The webinar consists of two parts, first part is a talk containing theoretical aspects and practical experience on the electrochemical treatment of mining waters, second part is aiming in discussion of the addressed topic.
