Underground mining project : Sodimate contributes to major VARES project in Bosnia Herzégovina

Discover our contribution to a major mining project in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The aim? Treat wastewater from lead, zinc, barite and silver mines to minimize environmental impact, comply with regulations and protect human health.

Water discharged from lead, zinc, barite and silver mines can contain a variety of contaminants, the main ones generally associated with the ore extraction and treatment processes. Care must therefore be taken to neutralize the pH of the water so that it can be discharged into a natural environment without impacting the environment, flora and fauna, or human health.

Wastewater treatment aims to reduce these contaminants to acceptable levels, in line with current environmental standards.

Here are the key components of our plant for this major mining project:

  • 65 m³ silo: A high-capacity storage tank, ensuring a constant and efficient supply of lime.
  • A mechanical arch breaker: An essential innovation for lime extraction, ensuring a smooth, unobstructed flow crucial to the preparation process.
  • 10 m³ preparation tank: Specially designed to optimally mix lime with water, forming a homogeneous lime milk for precise pH correction.
  • Filling pump skid: Allows fluid, controlled distribution of lime milk to treatment zones, crucial to system efficiency.
  • Electrical control cabinet: The nerve center of our installation, enabling simplified management and real-time monitoring of the entire process.
