Mining and mine processing facilities face different water treatment challenges throughout the whole life cycle of operations.Those range from the provision of potable water and the treatment of sewage from mining camps to the generation of process water for as well as the treatment of waste water from the mining operations.


On the waste water side, the mining operators are subject to strict discharge limits imposed by the regulators, which brings along a need for innovative and efficient treatment solutions. Typical mining wastewater will have oil by-products, high turbidity and suspended solids in addition to other contaminants.


De.mem deploys innovative products and solutions that address all of the above. Our customers include many of the leading global mining corporations as well as suppliers and outsourcing providers to the mining sector.


To achieve the above, De.mem deploys all common treatment processes including its proprietary hollow fibre membranes. De.mem can deliver the optimum solution to the customer at competitive cost.
