    Title: Pelletized Red-mud for Effluent Purification by Adsorption for Remediation of the Environment

    Type Details: Recent environmental disasters with tailings ponds of the European mining industry, have drawn public attention to the risks of the accumulation of large volumes of toxic and liquid waste.

    The new Bauxsol technology has been introduced by Virotec (Australia), allowing the rapid and cost-effective purification of mine waste water, by means of blending with treated waste of the bauxite refinement.

    Geochem Research has transformed the fine-grained Bauxsol into a granular material. Pelletized Bauxsol or Red mud can be used to construct permeable dams or filters. Mine water, percolating through this granular adsorbent is effectively neutralized and purified. In this way, the risky accumulation of large volumes of toxic, liquid waste is no longer necessary and future accidents with tailing ponds are prevented.

    Geochem Research, in cooperation with Virotec, likes to optimise its recipes for the fabrication of Bauxsol or Red mud pellets, design proper filters for the most effective neutralization and purification, and demonstrate the efficiency of the method by means of application at tailing ponds that most urgently have to be taken care of.
