Heavy Metal Removal - Mining - Wastewater Treatment

Water treatment solution that secures compliance with the most stringent environmental requirements.

Today, mining operations and smelters are increasingly complex and water-intensive, and often struggle to meet discharge limits for heavy metals into the ocean, rivers, lakes, etc. The wastewater often contains high metal loads with high corrosivity and high temperatures reducing the lifetime of traditional membranes, sometimes very significantly. 

Wastewater from mining operation presents some significant filtration challenges before it can be reused or released into the environment. The innovative water treatment solution from LiqTech is designed to help mining companies recover and recycle water, resulting in reduced waste processing costs and compliance with future stringent environmental requirements. With our industrial water treatment solution for wastewater in mining, we can guarantee continuous access to high-quality water for operators in order to maintain profitability and ensure environmental compliance.

With LiqTech’s ceramic silicon carbide membranes, we offer between 5-10 years warranty on membranes. Together with our corrosive-resistant system, we offer a very robust and efficient solution. LiqTech offers full installation of our water treatment systems and peripheral equipment including chemical precipitation, ultrafiltration, and dewatering solutions. The entire solution is monitored and controlled with our integrated PLC and HMI solutions. All systems can be cloud-enabled and can be monitored remotely by our customers and the LiqTech service team.
