An industry under economic, social and environmental pressure
Sustainable businesses look to reduce carbon emissions and recover and reuse more non-mineral waste. They also seek to optimise productivity, operational efficiency and economic performance while maintaining a positive public image as a responsible participant in the circular economy.
A complete partner in resource management
With integrated water and waste capability, we support you at all stages of the mining process.
- Water: our smart technologies safeguard your water resources, from on-site recycling and restoration of ponds and aquifers to wastewater treatment and acid mining drainage control. They can also increase your production rates and yields.
- Waste: we optimise your waste management, treat fumes and dust, remediate soils, control pollution and conduct environmental audits. All our waste vehicles are EPA/DWER compliant and licensed.
We’re committed to helping the resources sector achieve the highest levels of safety and compliance. Our waste and water solutions enable you meet the strictest regulations while minimising environmental impact, from chemical reagent options to minimise handling to legionella inspection and control services for cooling towers. All regulated waste is treated at dedicated facilities, and we monitor changing legislation to keep you compliant.
We drive economic efficiencies through comprehensive and regular reporting and educating your employees, contractors and customers in safe and effective practices. Our solutions reduce your carbon footprint through water and waste recycling, and minimise environmental harm through best practice management of sensitive and hazardous outputs – all critical in enhancing your brand image. We design, implement and optimise chemical applications to improve operational performance, minimise cost and reduce environmental impact.
