Application: Copper Leaching

 

Sustainability performance:

  • Improved metal extraction process meaning higher metal recovery from the ore, offers customers the option to increase their extraction efficiency or mine less ore to achieve the same production level
  • Mining less ore minimizes the impact of mining on the environment: reducing energy consumption, air and noise pollution
  • Lowers lixiviant (chemical) usage having positive health and safety implications, lowering pumping (energy) costs and hence offers significant cost savings
  • Higher recovery and recycling of water and improving tailings handleability
  • Extend life of mine


Leaching aid providing a more sustainable extraction process for copper
