Industrial Brine Treatment
Industrial brines are often difficult to treat, requiring removal of a range of contaminants prior to reuse or discharge. Treating brines using membranes often results in large volumes of waste, which becomes more difficult to treat as it becomes more concentrated.
Clean TeQ Water’s proprietary technologies provide minimum or zero liquid discharge solutions for these brines, minimising their volume and the associated disposal costs.
In some cases, selectively removing contaminants from the brine is possible, allowing it to be reused for processing. This provides our customers substantial cost savings from reduced chemical consumption and waste volumes.
Municipal Effluent Reuse
Municipalities globally have started looking at wastewater recycling to increase their water security. Challenges often faced by reuse schemes are waste production and its disposal, the total cost, and high nutrient loads.
Clean TeQ Water’s technologies are extremely well suited for maximum water recovery and minimum brine production. High quality water can be produced which is suitable for industrial use or even drinking, in a solution which provides the lowest total cost of ownership and smallest environmental footprint.
Mining Wastewater and Metal Recovery
The mining sector produces a range of complex wastewaters and brines, including tailings and acid mine drainage. Recovering metals can often be uneconomical form these sources, especially when present in low concentrations.
Clean TeQ Water provides a range of solutions to selectively remove and recover impurities from mining water, including metal recover technologies capable of producing concentrated and pure metal products. Membrane-free desalination technologies can be used to provide much higher scaling and fouling resistance, and higher water recovery.
Simple water treatment and metal recovery flowsheets can be utilised which have low chemical consumption and operational costs.
