Landfill Water management
EXCESS WATER EVAPORATION SOLUTIONS REDUCING RISK & IMPROVING OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
Effective landfill water management presents a range of challenges for operators with a key priority being the ability to ensure the site and its surrounds address short and long-term environmental impacts.
Landfill water leaching into the water table presents a significant environmental risk and it must be treated to ensure its chemical concentrations are in line with local regulatory requirements, thus the importance of leachate water management as well.
Over three decades, we have become experts in landfill water management, wastewater treatment technologies, and the processing of any type of water quality including acid water, saline and caustic water with our water evaporation system capable of a world-leading air to water ratio of 2160:1.
Minetek has the proven capability to enable landfill operations to meet and maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.
The relatively small fans allowed us to utilise our existing bulkhead, where we were severely limited by space, which allowed us to use our existing infrastructure and dramatically reduce downtime in the mine during the change out. The installation was completed safely... and allows us to scale our ventilation flow with their pressure on demand system to suit our production profile.
We are always looking at new innovations and technologies that will benefit both us and our clients. Minetek has been able to display that with the use of their modern ventilation technology, where we can look to see production increases through faster re-entry times and reduced capital costs in the total life of the development, delivering value to both us and Mincor.
MINETEK initially provided products for heavy mobile equipment noise abatement at the New Acland Mine. These installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.
We have utilised MINETEK for a number of sound attenuation projects in the Hunter Valley and have formed an excellent relationship with Glencore over many years. MINETEK understand our industry and always provide a solid and professional commitment to meeting our goals and objectives."
