Mining & Metals

Finding source water for some remote mining installations can be a challenge. Aquatech has the experience and process depth to provide unique solutions to feed your plant. Today, more and more industries are prohibited from discharging any liquid waste originating from their facilities and are required to meet evolving environmental regulations. Aquatech has a wide range of technologies, services, and knowledge that can help solve the water and wastewater issues for the mining industry.


Mining & Metals At a Glance

  • More than 90% recovery for difficult to treat wastewater
  • Over 1,000 projects in more than 60 countries


  • Physical Chemical and Filtration
  • Desalination
    • Thermal MED
    • Membrane (UF, RO,R2RO)
  • Biological Solutions
  • Evaporative Solutions (BC/FC)

Desalination plays an important role for the mining industry in terms of water supply and producing clean water for use in various mining processes as well as boiler feedwater applications for power generation that are located at the mining sites. In arid locations, the primary water supply source is seawater, which is desalinated on the coast and then pumped inland, reaching a distance of 150 km and altitudes that are thousands of meters above sea level.

Aquatech provides projects from design concept to commissioning of a complete solution, including engineering, procurement, project management, and turnkey construction. Aquatech also provides complete support during commissioning and beyond with long term operations and maintenance service contracts.
