Multilinear drainage geocomposites to filter oil sands tailing slurries

October 1st, 2018 / By: , , / Feature

Mining and some energy operations generate large quantities of water-containing tailings. These tailings are made of crushed-rock particles that are deposited in a slurry form. This is the case for coal, tar sand, lead, zinc, gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, nickel, taconite (iron), phosphate, bauxite (aluminum oxide), uranium, trona (soda ash) and potash, for example. There […]

One response to “Multilinear drainage geocomposites to filter oil sands tailing slurries

  1. Did research on the use of filter fabric to replace graded aggregate filters in subsurface drains in ’72. Introduced prefabricated drainage composites to market place in ’81. Dewatering subgrade soil is much different from filtering slurries of sediments in flowing water.

    Recently developed technology and filtration products to deal with
    filtration of sediments in slurry. Look forward to communicating with Pascal Saunier / Afitex-Texel on the issue.
