Title 'Green' company offers desalination technology Type Journal Article
Year 1998 Publication Water Sewage and Effluent Abbreviated Journal
Volume 18 Issue 4 Pages 9-11
Keywords Groundwater problems and environmental effects geomechanics abstracts: excavations (77 10 10) acid mine drainage environmental effect mine drainage
Abstract Water and wastewater treatment activities, projects and capabilities of South African environmental engineering specialist Envig are detailed. The company, as part of the Weir Wesgarth Consortium, has pre-qualified for the major Namibian Water Supply Project, one of the largest of its kind to date in southern Africa. This project involves the desalination of seawater to meet increasing water demand and shortfalls. Envig, if awarded the contract, would be involved in construction of three or four reverse osmosis or mechanical vapour compression sea water desalination plants and associated infrastructure. The company is also involved in a mine water desalination project at the Eskom Tutuka Power Station. A reverse osmosis plant using low fouling maintenance is being installed to deal with acid mine drainage water. Details of the design and operation of this plant are given.

Title World first: Full-scale BioSure plant commissioned Type Journal Article
Year 2006 Publication Water Wheel Abbreviated Journal
Volume 5 Issue 3 Pages 19-21
Keywords Waste Management and Pollution Policy geographical abstracts: human geography environmental planning (70 11 5) wastewater waste facility mine waste gold mine sewage treatment
Abstract ERWAT's Ancor Wastewater Treatment Works on the Far East Rand commissioned a 10 Ml/day full-scale plant to treat toxic mine-water from the Grootvlei gold mine using primary sewage sludge. The R15-million plant is treating sulphate rich acid mine drainage using the Rhodes BioSURE Process. First, the pumped mine-water is treated at a high-density separation (HDS) plant to remove iron and condition pH levels. Then it is pumped two km via a newly-constructed 10 Ml capacity pipeline to the Ancor works. This mine-water is then mixed together with primary sewage sludge in a mixing tank from where a splitter box directs the material to eight biological sulphate reducing reactors or bioreactors. The overflow water which is rich in sulphide is pumped through the main pump station to another mixing box. Here, iron slurry is mixed with the material before it is again divided between four reactor clarifiers for sulphide removal. The overflow water, now containing reduced sulphate levels and virtually no sulphide is pumped to Ancor's biofilters for removal of remaining Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and ammonia following the conventional sewage treatment process for eventual release into the Blesbokspruit.

Title Acid Mine Drainage (AMD): causes, treatment and case studies Type Journal Article
Year 2006 Publication J. Cleaner Prod. Abbreviated Journal
Volume 14 Issue 12-13 Pages 1139-1145
Keywords contamination effluents government industrial pollution industrial waste mining industry research initiatives wastewater treatment acid mine drainage environmental problems mining industry government research initiatives contamination civil engineering mining quarrying activity environmental impact acid generating process acid drainage migration prevention measures effluent treatment chemical treatment biological treatment Manufacturing and Production Entwässern=Gelände Umweltbelastung Bauingenieurwesen Bergbau Sickerwasser Steinbruch Säureproduktion Neutralisation Bergbauindustrie technische Forschung Ingenieurswissenschaft Steinbruchabbau Acid Mine Drainage Mining Environmental Chemical and biological treatment
Abstract This paper describes Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) generation and its associated technical issues. As AMD is recognized as one of the more serious environmental problems in the mining industry, its causes, prediction and treatment have become the focus of a number of research initiatives commissioned by governments, the mining industry, universities and research establishments, with additional inputs from the general public and environmental groups. In industry, contamination from AMD is associated with construction, civil engineering mining and quarrying activities. Its environmental impact, however, can be minimized at three basic levels: through primary prevention of the acid-generating process; secondary control, which involves deployment of acid drainage migration prevention measures; and tertiary control, or the collection and treatment of effluent.
