Use Geotextile Tube as Mine Slurry Dewatering TreatmentIn the latest ACENewsletter, a case of using geotextile tube as mine slurry dewatering treatment is introduced.
Mining, one of the basic industries of human civilization, usually accompanies with wastes and other negative effects when human are devoted to acquiring high economic value minerals. The impacts of mining industry to the environment include soil erosion, land subsidence caused by mining pits, destruction of biodiversity, and contamination of groundwater by chemical-containing wastewater during mining.
In most mining operations, a large amount of water is used for sluicing and selecting minerals, thus wastewater and slurry waste with high moisture content being generated.
Slurry waste is usually transported and stacked on the settling pond, and after the moisture content of slurry waste decreases, it will be removed. This method requires a long time and a large hinterland to finish the whole dewatering treatment, while using ACETube® geotextile tube to process slurry waste dewatering is capable to significantly shorten the dewatering time and reduce the use of land area.
