Treatment of acidic mine waters from the Solbec-Cupra site using the Mediaflex{trademark} process; Traitement des eaux minieres acides du site Solbec-Cupra par le procede Mediaflex{sub TM}

Technical Report:

Abstract

Applications and development of Mediaflex{trademark} filter treatment technology are described. The method combines physical, chemical, and biological processes into a technology suitable for purification of sanitary landfill leachates, septic tank sludge, and acidic mine waters. More than a dozen of the patented filters are in use. The treatment can reach 99.9% removal of heavy metals and phenolic compounds present in waste water. Since installation of the Mediaflex{sub TM} filter at the Cambior Solbec-Cupra mining site more than 50,000 cubic metres of acidic mine waste waters (pH 5.5) have been treated. After Mediaflex{sub TM} filtration, the pH is approximately 8.0, with the heavy metal content reduced substantially. 3 refs., 4 figs., 3 tabs.
