Our products are more and more  used in mining applications such as the extraction of gold, silver, uranium, … 

Our Hydrogen Peroxide is a very attractive reagent which can be used:

  • To enhance the recovery of metals
  • To detoxify water effluents after metal extraction
  • To generate superactive oxidants on site (caro’s acid) when hydrogen peroxide is not active enough
Our SodaSolvay® delivers when used to neutralize acidic mine runoff and acid waste in ponds or streams. Soda ash is used in calciners that roast ore to prevent sulfur dioxide emission or formation of sulfuric acid gas. Trona products deliver in metals refining to control acid gas emission, prevent sulfur build up, and prevent corrosion in duct work.
