The Mining market

Mining activities often generate high volumes of water with a wide range of contaminants, such as high levels of suspended solids and heavy metals. Other pollutants may also be present, depending on the specific mining operation. Proper water treatment is required to ensure compliance with regulations, allowing water to be recycled and reused within the mining industry. This contributes to protecting the local ecosystem and promoting sustainable mining practices. Swedish Hydro Solutions' treatment processes and use of biodegradable flocculants ensure that mining industries can effectively treat and reuse water within their projects.

Thanks to the water treatment plant, we have maintained a healthy work environment while simultaneously conducting work continuously.
